The Dallmayr, also a Delicatessen House in Munich, is a tradition since the 17th century and a parent company of the famous German coffee “Prodomo”.

German Gulasch (Goulash)

When growing up, my mother used to make Goulash on a regular basis – it’s one of those dishes that I fondly remember. She always made this dish in a pressure cooker. I was extremely suspicious of this pot, somehow I always expected the thing to suddenly explode. When I moved out and was now responsible for the goulash myself, I used a normal pot and let the dish simmer for several hours. Goulash is now our family tradition for large gatherings and holidays. I prepare two large pots for my daughter and family, and also for the visiting neighbors and friends.

Chamonix-MontBlanc, the highest Mountain in Western Europe

Written by Author Claudia Clark. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and because I am an avid animal lover–especially koalas and kangaroos, we had planned for 5 years to go to Australia. Unfortunately, because of the Coronavirus outbreak our trip had been cancelled, so we decided to travel to France, the town of Chamonix and the Mont-Blanc mountain, which is the Haute-Savoie region.

Croissants aux Amandes

I ate these decadent Almond Croissants while in Paris at the Les Deux Magots. They are also called croissants aux creme d’amandes or simply croissants fourrés. We arrived at the Parisian district with a special charm, an atmosphere of character and a renowned café name Les Deux Magots! With a patio facing the church, and its waiters in black and white clothes set the tone of Saint-Germain.

Homemade Schinken or Prosciutto

I pride myself to have mastered the art of smoking a German Schinken, a type of Prosciutto. The difference is that Schinken is cold smoked and dried, versus Prosciutto is hung/dried for about a year. I watched many YouTube clips and joined Social media groups about smoking meats. I held on to this recipe for a very long time, and since I am traveling more, I thought it is time to pass it on.

Easy Peach and/or Berry Cobbler

I was introduced to this Cobbler recipe about thirty years ago in the North Carolina Blue Ridge mountains, only weeks after arriving to America. Being used to elaborate cakes and tortes, my first thought was that this was too simple. To my surprise, it tasted delightful. Ingredients are one cup of each: flour, sugar and […]
