One year later…
it’s been almost one year since I decided to go to culinary school, move to Vermont, and change my whole life! In the next few posts, I’d like to review the past year, the ups and downs, school, work, and life in general.
I’m currently in Germany visiting my family, and of course want to share some food photos with you!
The “Vesper”, as it’s called, is eaten in the evening. Here you can see Italian salami (roped together), a piece of Schickenspeck (smoked ham), parmesan cheese, and a Laugenweckle. ‘Laugenweckle’ is basically a bun made from pretzel dough. It’s my favorite bun!
This is the same kind of bun topped with cheese. Maybe this is my favorite? It’s all so good.
I’ve also been eating a winter lettuce called “Ackersalat”, or in English: ‘corn salad‘, ‘lamb’s lettuce’, or ‘field salad’. This lettuce is not available in Northern America. It’s popular in Germany during winter, as it is a winter green plant.
For lunch today I made a chickpea stew from this recipe on epicurious.com.
