Greek & Vegan: Μελομακάρονα / Melomakarona

Two month ago I got a message on couchsurfing from an American woman who told me that she is in love with my blog! Thanks again, Charley! 😉 She said, she knew the perfect Greek cooking teacher for my challenge. She surfed her couch once and told me to ask her if she would cook…

Austrian & Vegan: Mozartkugeln (Mozart balls)

As I told you before, I´m trying to help stray cats from Romania. We needed more space to get the cats of the streets of Bucarest. That´s why I looked for more people who would agree to foster a cat until we find a new home for the animal. That way I found Anna from Austria….

Moldovan & Vegan: Fasole făcăluită

The Romanians and Moldavians share a very similar cuisine so I was really happy to learn another recipe that belongs to that region. My teacher this time was a Moldovan girl named Katya. Yes again – a female cook! 😉 Katya lives in Tiraspol – the second largest city in Moldova. Tiraspol is the capital of…

Danish & Vegan: Brændende kærlighed

Although Denmark is pretty close to Germany it was kind of hard to find someone to cook with. I mean many people said „yes – here I am“ but then last minute they had no time anymore. That happened like 4 times in a row. I have to admit that I was a bit angry…

Romanian & Vegan: Zacuscă de vinete

I have a very special connection to Romania. Not only that my boyfriend is half Romanian – two of my cats used to live on the streets of Bucharest before I adopted them. They are the cutest babies in the world! ❤ Since the first one came to me one year ago I help to…

Egyptian & Vegan: طعمية / Tamija / Ta’miya / Ṭaʿmīya

I´m a big fan of the Egyptian culture. I always was! My favorit jewel is a pendant shaped like the famous Eye of Horus. That´s why I really hoped to find someone from Egypt to cook with. Although Egypt is a paradise for vegans and vegetarians I have to confess it wasn´t easy! I wrote many,…

South African & Vegan: Chakalaka

I´m pretty happy that I managed to cook a South African dish during my cooking challenge year! It´s possible because I met a vegan German girl on a South African website. Yes German – but in the moment Klara is living in Cape Town. Two years ago she made an internship in South Africa to…
