Finkenwerder Meeresfrüchte Suppe – Seafood Soup Finkenwerder Style



Finkenwerder is part of Hamburg/Germany, famous (culinary wise) for its seafood restaurants. When I was a young cook back in the seventies, I worked part time in one of them (the name escapes me now) The restaurant was very elegant, expensive and beautiful. I remember many of the specialties we cooked there but the one outstanding dish I remember in particular was the

  1. I’m hungry again Hans. I love seafood and I love soup, so this will go down as one I have to make. Doubt I can find cockles, but the rest are available just a block away, waiting for me to come and get them.

    By the way, I’ve nominated you for two awards at http://kyangel.com One is the “Inner Peace” award, and the other is the “Community of Bloggers” award. You don’t have to accept them, but I wanted you to know how much I love you sharing your recipes and knowledge for those of us who love German food.
