The 5 best you-tube channels for making your children kick-ass food

Having children means getting soaked into a world full of trends and fashions the child-less adult has no idea about. Some of them are cool and make you feel alive, others can be annoying… Moreover, as much as you want to invest in your child and raise it in a responsible, inspired way, every now and then (when all your energy, wisdome, and ideas suddenly just leave you again) you feel tempered of allowing them to follow the most stupid trends and latest ‚in‘-things out there, i.e. to game the extra hour, spend to much money on some franchise items,  eat this unhealthy/useless candies now en vogue, and visit the bad influence idiot friend who is currently the opinion leader in the hood/school (the last comment was mean, but a friend of mine – mother of a 5 year old – really phrased it like this). Why ? – cause your kid wants to belong to the group and just enjoy bizzare things as they are fun. There is away of reducing such moments! At …

Hemp crackers – there is a new brand in town!

I am addicted! There is a new cracker in town and it is based on hemp 🙂 I love hemp 🙂 Not the cannabis one – the nutrition one (yes, there is a difference). Of course, of course, there are tons of recipes on the web, how you can make them yourself (see for example here or here), but this one is so quickly bought and just so addictive! It only consists of healthy stuff (hemp, sesam, buckwheat, flaxseed) – some of them sprouting), still being yummy, and you can even buy it outside of Germany. It is a great example how vegan, eco-friendly producers are getting better and better in stealing traditional snack producers the show! So, this post is almost product placement so I stop now…

Edible six-pence rings to fight plastic waste

The plastic rings holding together a beer six-pence kill marine animals in very cruel ways (see for example these pictures). The craft beer brand Saltwater Brewery, targeting surfers, fishermen and ocean lovers, wanted to show that the madness can be stopped. Together  with the New York-based small agency We Believers, they developed edible six-pences made from wheat and barley, i.e. the stuff that is left over when brewing beer. A magnificent story (first reported in the net by the way here)!!! Very yummy!!! That of course reminds me a bit about my thoughts on edible spoons I wrote about recently, so I thought this break-through is also gonna shared on this blog! Cheerioh!!

Still on the hunt for THE egg plant recipe – and having discovered other important things instead

  Some time ago I wrote about a fantastic egg plant recipe. Well, I was promised to be soon provided with the recipe – it is from North Iran. There is a trick associated with it, cause best the egg plant is best prepared on a coal grill and the recipe needs to be adapted to electric kitchen ovens. In the meantime, I would like to elaborate a bit more about preparing egg plant for a mouse. The basic recipe of it is similar to a fish sauce recipe I published 2 years ago. In short, you need to quarter an egg plant. Then leave it in the oven for 45 minutes at 200°C. By baking, all the bitter flavours of egg plant are neutralized. Quite simple Once you are done backing peel and muse the egg plant by cutting it into a puree. Heat olive oil and add the egg plant together with cut garlic (one clove per agg plant) and turmeric (curcuma) as well as chillie and salt. Even this basic recipe will …

Faces – the little things in life

A friend of mine works in advertisement but his last name is Koch – which means ‘chef’ or ‘cooker’ in German. We talked some other time about LeckerBiss and he liked the site. In particular, cause he himself in his kitchen always encounters these little magical moments. In fact, he has collected a kind of food diary over the last years of little snapshots he took in his kitchen. For example, he has this little collection of faces. I thought them to be magnificent and worth sharing 🙂 Enjoy     +
