Mexican & Vegan: Chiles en nogada

Exotic, hearty, sweet & spicy – that´s how I would describe the Mexican dish we made last week. My Mexican cooking teacher Rosita told me about it as very traditional dish but not vegan at all. When I saw the pictures of it I decided to try a vegan version which was a very wise…

Algerian & Vegan: Mhadjeb

My Algerian cooking teacher is called Caroline. Yes right – she´s not born in Algeria. Originally Caroline comes from Texas. During a long travel trip about 10 years ago she fell in love with an Algerian guy. Now she´s living in two countries. Caroline is almost vegan and loves to cook. One of the first…

Ukrainian & Vegan: Varenyky / варе́ники

My last cooking adventure somehow reminded me at my childhood. And I still don’t know why! I think the taste of that yummy dish is similar to something my mother made me for dinner as a child. I´ll have to ask her an figure it out! 😉 But maybe you´ll feel the same way when…

Maltese & Vegan: Kapunata

Today we are going to visit a small island situated in the centre of the Mediterranean, 80 km south of Sicily, 284 km east of Tunisia and 333 km north of Libya —> Malta. I had a nice long talk with my Maltese cooking teacher Paul about the Maltese culture and I really feel as if…

Czech & Vegan: Vdolky/Dalken

If you´re on a challenge like this one it happens that the world seems smaller from day to day. So many countries I cooked with and the countries left are getting less and less. Incredible how small the world can be! But on the other hand I still have countries to cook with – even…

Albanian & Vegan: Tarator

„Do you like tzatziki? Then you will love this dish!“ That´s what Corinne told me and after I tried her Albanian dish „Tarator“ I´m telling you the same! By the way – I love tzaziki! Corinne lives in Paris now but her parents originally come from Albania. That explains why she knows so much about the…

Cypriot & Vegan: Louvana

Before I tell you about the Cypriot dish we made I want to take a second to say – I LOVE SKYPE! 🙂 Otherwise I wouldn´t be able to cook with so many people. And I never would make it to my goal of 50 vegans this year! But I´m pretty positive to make it…

Portuguese & Vegan: Doce de tomate

Another Skype adventure lies behind me. It was a very special one. And I´m feeling like a house wife now! 😀 For the lovely country Portugal my Portuguese teacher Maria and me chose sth. different to make. We didn´t make dinner or dessert. This time we made a very special Portuguese jam. It´s called „doce…

Welsh & Vegan: Leek Soup

Great Britain is done! I cooked with a woman from England, I also cooked Scottish and now I met that awesome woman from Wales who teached me a lot about Welsh cuisine. When Laura sent me the recipes for main dish an dessert I thought it would be pretty easy to decide which recipe I…

New Zealand & Vegan: Pavlova

Although the weather in Berlin gets colder and colder these days a few travellers still are coming to Germany to explore my awesome hometown. So did Amy and Georgina from New Zealand. They are on a trip through Europe right now and last week they visited me in Berlin to cook typical vegan dishes from…
