Wild Garlic Pesto
Spring is the time for colorful and fragrant flowers. But besides all that: It´s Wild Garlic Time!!!! I never tried this wonder of nature until I moved to scandinavia... I heard of wild garlic and in germany of Bärlauch.. but somehow never tried it.
The taste of garlic is so special, you will want this to grow all-year-long. But what do do with it? well besides using it to garnish and give an extra "oomph" to your dish, you can use it as the main element on recipes. This time I used it to prepare a wild pesto.
1 bunch of Wild Garlic
a Handful of fresh basil
50 gr Pine Nuts
50 gr Parmesan Cheese
150 ml Olive oil
1/2 Lemon juice
1 tbsp Creme Fraiche (optional)
Toast the pine nuts until they are golden. Place all ingredients (except the oil, salt and pepper) into a mixer or food processor for 2 minutes. Start pouring slowly the oil until is all blended. Add salt & Pepper.
I love it in pasta, zoodles, sandwiches.. it is delicious... If you like really hard tastes, forget the basil and use just ramson. I hope you like it!
Insearchof Brunch PopUp
America has the Olsen Twins, and Berlin Food scene has the Power Twins Sophia & Maria. From collaborating with Mit Vergnuegen to This is Jane Wayne and much more! But we were all wondering: When are they going to start something on their own?
And after months of planning and thinking, together with Kai, IN SEARCH OF was born. But IN SEARCH OF is more than a food blog, but lifestyle, travel, Fashion, Fitness, you name it!
When my partner in crime Ailine, told me about the event, I was like woooohhhooo! Death by Burrito with the twins.. best thing to do on a sunny saturday afternoon in Berlin. We went for some shopping first and walked our way to the PopUp Restaurant.
We got way too early, but that meant: more dränks! We were very excited about This Mexican Asian Streetfood fusion. The menu this day was brought to us by Berlin's streetfood legend Truong Phuong aka Monsieur Dope (District Mot),Diana Quach (DQ, UrbanHunger) and Roberto Delucio (Kantine Kohlmann) And I have to say, from now on I will make only wonton nachos! they were delicious!
As the hunger was huge after shopping, we ordered everything on the menu, besides the corn. And it was indeed enough food for us 2. Our favorites were The Sriracha Wings and The Peking Duck Carnitas, though all the food was very good!
Check out their Facebook Page for further events. But as you see in this poster, the next event is this weekend with Gourment Vegan followed by Caribbean Food the 16th of April, Oyster Bar (yummieeee!) the 23rd-24th April and ending with an Open Air on May 1st!
Dont miss it and add them to your Calendar! Ahoi!
