Just wanted to shoot off a quick post to say: Happy Easter Everyone. Or, ‘Happy Long-Weekend’ if you’re not so into the associated religion.
Once upon a time, we decided to make empanadas. And after months of discussing the concept, we finally, one evening, actually did.
I’m not going to lie to you. I’m currently sitting in my kitchen drinking tea and eating Christmas Cake. We’re going out for brunch, so I’m not allowed to have a real breakfast. But Christmas cake doesn’t count, right?
If you’ve lived in Berlin or even just visited briefly, you know all about Markthalle Neun. During the week and on Saturdays they sell ready-to-eat delicacies and regional produce. On Thursday evenings they have street food, and once a month or so they have themed Breakfast Markets. This weekend, the theme was Japanese.

This year, I became obsessed with the idea of making things for Christmas. You’ve seen the traditional cookies, but it extended beyond that.
I’m pretty excited that this year I finally managed to get together the ingredients and equipment to make my family’s traditional Christmas cookies.
I guess anyone who knows me won’t be too surprised to see that one of my first Polish posts is about Pączki. These delicious, sweet, perfectly-fried-fluffed-and-filled delicacies, pronounced more like ‘pOnchki’ than ‘pac-see’, are Poland’s version of a jam-filled doughnut (or Berliner). But let me tell you friends, the word doughnut just doesn’t cover it.
This past weekend was a pretty amazing Food Gorge Session for Andy, Szym* and I…
I’ve had these photos floating around in an unpublished post for some time now.
