Schnitzel vom Schweinerücken „Zigeuner Art“

> >> > One of my first childhood memories involving food is about Schnitzel. When visiting a restaurant with my parents in my earliest years, more often than not at least one person of the family/group at the table ordered a schnitzel, sometimes everybody. There was a wide variety of schnitzel available, even in the most […]

Jägerschnitzel Vom Huhn Mit Pasta Und Schmelze – Chicken Cutlet Hunter Style

> > I just  have come across some debates about what constitutes a “true” Jägerschnitzel, so I’d like to put that to rest, right now, right here, with some authority on the subject (easy now !) 🙂 After all, I grew up  in Swabia in Southern Germany, where, during my youth, schnitzel were one of the […]

“Gechinger Schnitzel Weckle”

> > > I have  for some time pondered if and which dish I should dedicate to my hometown of Gechingen. After the process of eliminating one candidate after another for many different reasons, I finally concocted and decided on this dish, which for me encapsulates the essence of what I remember to be some […]

Paniertes Rinderschnitzel (Breaded Beef Cutlet With Pickled Onions)

Paniertes Rinderschnitzel Mit Sautiertem Spinat (Breaded Beef Cutlet With Spinach)

> > Bife à Milanesa  as it is called in Portugal, where Maria and I enjoyed this dish often. Beef and breading – what’s not to love ? I actually prefer to eat them cold the next day when the breading has that special taste and texture. But If you serve them as leftover, make […]

Jägerschnitzel Mit Nudeln Und Romaine (Hunter’s Schnitzel With Noodles And Romaine)

“ “ Today  was the first time in four year’s that something actually went my way, unconditionally and perfect. A feeling of relief not experienced for such a long time. To celebrate, I prepped for myself this comforting, traditional Swabian dish of Jägerschnitzel, something I grew up with and although simple and down to earth, still […]

Calamares Al Ajillo, Arroz Mexicana Y Frijoles Negro

: : : This was such a down to earth, yet wonderfully delicious meal. Well-prepared rice and beans are something I enjoy at least twice a week. But not just the simple black beans and white rice common here in the Caribbean, South America and South Florida, but many, many combinations of different rice and […]

My Trip To Germany And Spain

. Dear Friends, Here is a short report of my trip to Germany and Spain, which lasted from September 13th to October 13th. When I planned the trip, I made a huge mistake by not booking a direct flight to Cologne. The original plan was to fly to Munich, rent a car there and travel […]

Mexican Treasures – Guacamole, Escabeche De Cebolla, Salsa Mexicana

> > For  me, these three condiments are not to be missed to accompany any Mexican-style meal I prepare at home. In my opinion, they also fit very well with a wide range of dishes of non-Mexican cuisine from around the world. They pair nicely with steaks, schnitzel, sandwiches, salads, meat, seafood, vegetables, eggs, etc. In fact, I usually have at […]

Hans’ Poutine

> > When  I was a small kid, french fries were a VERY special treat for me. At the time, restaurant visits were a seldom enjoyed occasion and therefore happened only once in a while. But whenever we did visit a restaurant, French Fries, or”Fritten” as they are called in many parts of Germany, were one of the highlights […]
