Muffins


This is just an experimental close-up photo of some muffins. My cousin likes to bake them and everyone in the family likes to eat them. The photo was shot with my 40mm macro lens. I don’t use that lens very often but it’s fun to experiment with. I think it also works very well with food photography. I hope I didn’t make you hungry now (laugh). Continue reading Muffins

Beef Roulade


I thought I upload a photo for my food photography category again. My grandma cooked the dish you can see in the picture above. We ate that during Christmas and that’s when I took the picture. I don’t always upload my photos in a timely manner. But I wanted to share it anyway. What you see is a Rinderroulade (Beef Roulade), with potatoes, red cabbage, peas, and carrots. And a tasty sauce! This is also a very common German dish and extremely tasty. Continue reading Beef Roulade

Chinese Buffet


Like a month ago, I went into a Chinese Mongolian restaurant again. We decided for the buffet again. I didn’t photograph my first plate as I was hungry and as I filled it diversely to the point that it looked like a mess. But I made more efforts with my second plate and made it look good.

We sat there for 3 hours again and had a fun … Continue reading Chinese Buffet

Mom’s Potato Salad


Potato salad is a very common dish in Germany as well. Once in a while, people like to prepare and eat a nice potato salad. I visited my mother during Christmas and at New Year’s Eve and in both cases she prepared potato salad with Bockwurst (a sausage variant). Every family prepares the potato salad in different ways but if you ask a person where you can get the best potato salad, he or she will most likely reply “If you visit my mother and or my grandma”.

Northern German Cuisine: Grünkohl


At the top, you see a photo of a very classical and traditional Northern German dish. It’s kale with fried potatoes, smoked pork chop, and smoked sausage. I’d argue if you ever been to Northern Germany during the cold days but didn’t eat “Grünkohl” (kale) as we call it, you absolutely didn’t experience Northern Germany. But as said, it’s a dish you’re more likely to find during the autumn and winter months here, that’s what we call “Grünkohlsaison” (kale season). That’s because back in the days if you wanted fresh kale, you got it from autumn to March. Temperatures down … Continue reading Northern German Cuisine: Grünkohl
