My last cooking adventure somehow reminded me at my childhood. And I still don’t know why! I think the taste of that yummy dish is similar to something my mother made me for dinner as a child. I´ll have to ask her an figure it out! 😉 But maybe you´ll feel the same way when […]
Today we are going to visit a small island situated in the centre of the Mediterranean, 80 km south of Sicily, 284 km east of Tunisia and 333 km north of Libya —> Malta. I had a nice long talk with my Maltese cooking teacher Paul about the Maltese culture and I really feel as if […]
If you´re on a challenge like this one it happens that the world seems smaller from day to day. So many countries I cooked with and the countries left are getting less and less. Incredible how small the world can be! But on the other hand I still have countries to cook with – even […]
Deutsche Übersetzung “Do you like tzatziki? Then you will love this dish!” That´s what Corinne told me and after I tried her Albanian dish “Tarator” I´m telling you the same! By the way – I love (vegan) tzaziki! Corinne lives in Paris now but her parents originally come from Albania. That explains why she knows […]
Before I tell you about the Cypriot dish we made I want to take a second to say – I LOVE SKYPE! 🙂 Otherwise I wouldn´t be able to cook with so many people. And I never would make it to my goal of 50 vegans this year! But I´m pretty positive to make it […]
Another Skype adventure lies behind me. It was a very special one. And I´m feeling like a house wife now! 😀 For the lovely country Portugal my Portuguese teacher Maria and me chose sth. different to make. We didn´t make dinner or dessert. This time we made a very special Portuguese jam. It´s called “doce […]
Great Britain is done! I cooked with a woman from England, I also cooked Scottish and now I met that awesome woman from Wales who teached me a lot about Welsh cuisine. When Laura sent me the recipes for main dish an dessert I thought it would be pretty easy to decide which recipe I […]
Although the weather in Berlin gets colder and colder these days a few travellers still are coming to Germany to explore my awesome hometown. So did Amy and Georgina from New Zealand. They are on a trip through Europe right now and last week they visited me in Berlin to cook typical vegan dishes from […]
The dish which I´m going to present you today is definitely sth. I will cook very often in the future. It is one of the tastiest dishes I learned all year. If you like spicy chickpeas and I do – you´re gonna looove this! Promised!
Finally sth. sweet again. 🙂 Jessie from Scotland told me via Skype: “If you want to make sth. really Scottish you should bake shortbread.” And that´s what we did.
Nicola from Macedonia dropped me a message last week because he wanted to be the Mazedonian part in this challenge. And I said – YES, that would be awesome! He even did figure out the dish we should prepare allready. Тавче гравче (Gravche Tavche or Tavce Gravce) – which is not only the most traditional […]
Yay! My first Skype cooking adventure is over and it was a lot of fun. 🙂 Although the connection broke a few times we had so much to laugh about and the food was pretty delicious and very heart warming! My first cooking guest via Skype was Mila from Croatia and this cooking session was […]
For the first time I cooked with someone who is actually living in Berlin. Ruth moved here from Mallorca and it was so nice to meet her. The best thing is that we actually can make plans to meet and cook together again whenever we want because we are living in the same city. And […]
Last month three lovely ladies from Slovenia visited me and surfed my couch. And of course I´m telling you that because we also cooked together. Anja suggested to cook a typical dish of her childhood which is called Žganci. Every child in Slovenia knows Žganci. To me it was sth. very new and I had to get […]
In August a nice Hungarian couple visited us. They did surf our couch and of course as they were veggies – they also teached me how to make the most typical Hungarian dish you can find – yummy Lecsó!
Another country of my favorit continent is part of my challenge: Chile! And it is really one of the countries I wished for to cook with. So I´m very lucky that Jazmín from Chile liked the idea of my project so much that she decided to cook with me. Actually, Jazmín read about my challenge on […]
Yes! Finally, I have found a famous breakfast recipe for my cute, little, international, vegan recipe blog. 🙂 The first time since 24 cooking adventures we made a yummy, healthy and like I already said very famous breakfast from Switzerland.
Oh my Brazilian cooking day was sooo delicious. Again I can say I LOVE the south american cuisine! I think I should move there some time! 😉 But let me tell you about it. My Brazilian guest Felipe surprised me with his blonde hair! His family originaly is from Germany – indeed from Germany! But […]
Komler is quite a short name for this Norwegian dish. But nevertheless it´s one of the most traditional dishes you can find in Norway and the best – it´s (mostly) vegan by itself. So nothing to veganise here.
My lovely Slovak guest Lucia went to a short couchsurfing trip to Copenhagen and of course to my wonderful hometown Berlin. That´s why she wrote me a message and we decided to cook with each other. When Lucia became vegan she “veganised” some of her favorite childhood dishes. One of them is Ryžový nákyp. Usually you […]
Another awesome international vegan cooking fest took place in my cute small kitchen. And I´m so sad that all the food is gone now. But the good thing is – I have the recipes! 🙂
When my Taiwanese guest Ya-Chen came into my flat for a few days it was like traveling to Asia. She cooked a lot with us, for us and I always enjoyed when she was sitting with us to tell funny and interesting stories about Taiwan and her childhood.
My dear guest Zäzilie from the netherlands wrote me because she was traveling to Berlin and liked to meet up with another vegan. Actually that nice Dutch girl was raised as a vegetarian. She never had eaten meat in her life, which I found pretty impressive! What great parents Zäzilie must have.
This time my wonderful “vegan cooking journey” led me to Sweden. My lovely teacher was Leila – a young vegan, Swedish girl, who taught me how it tastes to be a vegan in her country.
It was a pleasure to host my Israeli guest Yasmin. Not only because of the delicious Israeli food we made on her last evening. I learned a lot about Israeli culture as well and had a pretty good time hosting Yasmin. Her Israeli friend Naama also visited us for dinner together with her host Robert. […]
Oh it was such a French, such a delicious evening accomponied by jumping and leg climbing foster kittens who also desperately wanted to try the French & vegan cuisine. My French guest Astrid showed me how to make one of the Frenchest dishes you can imagine – Quiche Lorraine.
My Paraguayan kitchen guest Rodrigo wasn´t the first time in Berlin. He just loves the city he told me. “There are so many possibilities for vegans. It´s so easy to be vegan in Berlin.”
In my article “Italian & Vegan: Panforte” I told you allready that my Italian guest Mattia lives in Peru. And because he´s such a good cook I asked him to teach me a typical Peruvian dish as well.
When I asked my Belarusian and vegan couchsurfer Tanya what she would recommend as the typical dish from Belarus she didn´t need to think very long before she told me about – Draniki.
Mattia is that great Italian guy from Peru – so he actually could teach me both – Italian and Peruvian cooking. And much more better than that is the fact that this man used to be a dessert cook in Amsterdam, so he really knew what he was talking about and you actually could see […]
