Sourdough Survival Story 3

I said it before, my Sourdough is, together with dedication from me and everyone in supporting the project, a important asset in The Bread Exchange project. Thousands of stories are captured in that little smelly jar. A sourdough can survive a lot . It is full of healthy bacteria which takes care of most unfriendly stuff that comes into the … Read More

Sourdough Survival Story 2

As you know, I usually bring my sourdough when I travel. It is a risky thing to do so I try to keep a back up at my home in Berlin. But to be on the super safe side I also have my sourdough  saved with a couple of reliable people around the planet; NYC, Kabul, Nürnberg and Möglingen close … Read More

Matcha Waffel Recipe

Last week I made a matcha bread with white chocolate. I received many trade requests on this bread so I did not get to really one myself. Therefore I was really happy to get the feedback from Mirjan (image). Mirjan traded a massage for a bread. Thank You! Last week I also traded with Laura from Tausendsünd. I have already … Read More

Hiver Nomade

I just returned home after the most relaxing Easter holiday I ever experienced. Together with 5 friends I spend it in Wallis, a wine region in the French speaking parts of Switzerland. 11 hours of sleep. Late night cooking. Slow roasted easter lamb. Never ending breakfasts. Spa warm up on a rainy easter saturday. A whole day of sun while … Read More

Need some help in Sweden!

The last month we translated my Bread Exchange book into Swedish. Most recipes translated easy into swedish, especially since the Swedish food stores today are way broader sorted than 10 years ago. However I am having some concerns about one soup recipe which includes “buttermilk”. In Germany we have buttermilk but in Sweden we do not. We have a huge … Read More

Bread Exchange goes Matcha

I really like coffee. But I have reached a point where I have to admit that I can not really call my coffee drinking a procedure of enjoyment anymore. It is rather a simple habit. I am a fairly average Swedish coffee drinker. Which means I drink up to 5 cups of coffee a day. Preferably not the light American … Read More

Bread Exchange today

The other week I ordered a whole box of flour from Kunstmühle in München. It is one of the oldest German mills, located behind the Hofbräuhaus. It is one of the best places I know to get high quality flour and luckily they also ship to berlin. For me it makes sense since I order like 30-40 kg at the … Read More

Mainheim – A beautiful work space

Working hard on the Swedish translation here in Nürnberg. Fleissig. It is good to get out of the city from time to time. I spend a lot of time in Nürnberg, where my BF is working. Found a beautiful cafe around the corner of the new Apartment, Cafe Mainheim. I think I will spend a lot of time here. Soon … Read More

Almost Home

After living abroad 15 out of my 33 years I tend to grab for every little crumble of Sweden that falls on my path. From a Swedish expat perspective this week has been a very successful week. I have been tasting the highs and the lows of the Swedish culinary culture. I started off by hanging out in the Småland … Read More
