I hope you had a great weekend. I definitely had, I’ve skyped with my friend Anne, from the Netherlands. We’ve talked for hours. Talking about the good old days, it brought back some good memories. One of them was our spontaneous weekend trip to Hamburg, Germany.
There we’ve done all the typical tourist things. Like going on a boat trip, sightseeing in the city, watching the musical “The Lion King “, taking selfies in front of famous buildings, visiting the “Kietz” and the “Reeperbahn” and of course visiting some awesome restaurants.
One of these was the cute little Turkish restaurant “Peacetanbul”.
They have really nice staff and a great atmosphere. And their food is delicious.
This is a vegetarian burger with goat cheese and fries.
And this one are caneloni filled with spinach and feta.
Everything is really yummy and looks really good. They staff is really fast and friendly.
So if you’ll ever be in Hamburg and you’re looking for a great place to eat, go to “Peacetanbul”. You won’t regret it!
Today I’ve got another Comfort Food for you! It’s one of the oldest Danish dishes from the middle of the18th century. There are different types of recipes that are prepared locally – and in its own style and variation.
Both have the two basic elements in the dish areapplesand thick slices ofstreaky pork– which at that time either was preserved bysmoking,salting or air-drying, to last for over one year. When the industrialisation period started in the19th century-and many peasants moved to the bigger cities for work – the“Æbleflæsk”dish followed with the new inhabitants – and slowly theApple Porkbecame very popular among them too.
Today the tasty and mouth watering“Æbleflæsk”is turned into a national winter supplement and recipe – that is enjoyed by nearly every Dane at wintertime – especially at Christmas time.
Today I’ve chosen a recipe which will make your sweet tooth happy.
It’s a dutch candy called stroopwafle. Translated it means as much as syrup waffle.
The waffle is made from two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel-like syrup filling in the middle. It is one of the favotite sweets of dutch people and their tourists. I’ve tried it for the first time in the city of Gouda, where it was originally made first.
My friend from the Netherlands has send me an authentic recipe for homemade stroopwafels, cause she knows how much I love sweet things!!!
So what do you think about this picture down below ? Let’s guess what these gentleman are eating…
These people are dutch men who eat one of their favorite small, slippery, slimy, fatty, smelly sea-creature- the hallowed Herring! To say that the Dutch like herring is a vast understatement. It’s rather a a tremendous love affair between these two.
You’ve probably already seen my last post. The video about the most popular foods around the world – at least according to Instagram Hashtacks in 2015.
The video shows (fast-)food you can find at every corner no matter in which contry you are or how big the city is. Some things you can even buy, already prepared and frozen, in the supermarket. They’re commonly known. So not really special anymore. Which is kinda sad.
Everyone knows pizza is a italian specialty, bratwurst with sauerkraut a german and paella a spanish. I’m gonna digg a little deeper to find special, traditional or exotic dishes of diffrent contries.
I wanna show you how diffrent in taste, but delishious they can be.
Ideas I’ll get from my friends I met while I was traveling around the world.
