2007
Even though our trip has undergone many, many revisions and the timing of when to be where had military grade accuracy, one date was rock solid. The French Laundry. As soon as we had decided to do it…
Two cars, five states and countless meals Road-Trip Sep
30th,
2007
The last load of our washing machine hasn’t dried yet, empty bags still linger in our hallway and far too many emails are crowding my to-do list, gathering more e-dust by the hour. We’re home again. The welcoming sunshine at the airport was an insidious trickery …
Escaping the rain Vacation Sep
7th,
2007
Enough is enough! After a week of constant rain we decided to leave and go west. Like… in a few thousand miles west. I’d love to claim to have this level of spunk, but the trip was planed well ahead…

…eating out was a completely different story, oftentimes our eyes were bigger than our stomach. No, all the times. Skordalia, tzatziki, saganaki, fried calamari and sardines, fried eggplant, different kinds of souvlaki, pastitsio, moussaka, dolmades, pantzaria, taramosalata and what not were regulars on our dinner table…
La Côte d'Azur - A trip into the blue Nice Apr
30th,
2007
The first morning in Nice greeted us with airy blue skies and flip-flop weather and we couldn’t wait to get down to the beach front, not shy asking the hotel’s receptionist for a small city map and a few recommendations. The air and its scent, the sea and its unbelievable intense blue, the short stroll into the city center along the coast side…

What brought us to leave the comfort of our own four walls in search of new lands & tastes? Sun, fair sky and tasty food. Well, that and the outlook to learn the one or other thing about olives, olive oils and the wonderful region of…

I’ve mentioned it before, the best thing about food-blogging is the people you’ll meet along the way. Dear friendships have developed, both in the online and offline world; what can I say, passionate food lovers mingle well.
Cute looks - bad taste What are we Aug
21st,
2006
This is one of our culinary finds at the Naschmarkt in Vienna. Lacking in taste they unfortunately were quite a disappointment, despite the stand owner sweared (“…’til I die or poke a needle in my eye”), that they were ripe… Any clue, what these are?

2006
A little annoyed by the constant rain, we headed back to the hotel and shortly after found ourselves in front of a PC screen checking our emails and could not believe what we were looking at – I wildly gestured Oliver to come over and tell me I’m not starting to see things… we’ve been selected by TIME.com as one of the 50 Coolest Websites (2006).

Food. We were spoiled (in so many ways) on our trip, where to begin? Perhaps with our objectives, or in other words, our cravings for down-to-earth, hearty food as well as looking forward to our joint cooking sessions with Stephanie and David.
