For all cases celery
Costs almost nothing, lasts forever and remains in the display when everything is others were hammered away. The celeriac is an all-rounder: As a quick soup (the recipe is here here ) with potatoes, apple juice and good broth, caramelized walnut kernels – a poem! Baked in the oven – a solid meat substitute. As a puree with potatoes and nut butter – a creamy-nutty side dish that almost steals the show from the main actor. You can even make an extract in the juicer, mix it with apple juice and offer it as a delicious drink to accompany vegetable dishes – it has everything your body needs. If you don’t want to do without haute cuisine: celery goes wonderfully well with truffles.
Where? Practically everywhere
It is a special moment when for the first time a salami of the exceptional Dutch sausage coated with white noble mold “ Worstmakers Brandt & Levie “tried. The facts: species-appropriate animal husbandry, stress-free slaughter, hot meat processing, from nose to tail, natural casings, our own spice mixtures, no flavor enhancers. The result: different types of salami, each of which tastes great. “Nature” – a declaration of love to the pig. “Fennel” – Greetings from Italy. Especially “Chipotle cocoa” – the sausage wonder of flavors. Nothing tastes good, everything serves the noble meat. Enjoy in little bites!

Red like a tomato
The story of “Amy’s Kitchen” sounds like an ecological fairy tale: The parents – they are called “Berliners”, come from Chicago, and you could describe them as hippiesk – cooked little things for friends and neighbors with ingredients from the own garden. Then Amy was born and, incidentally, the family business became a global supplier of frozen and convenience products. The high quality standard remained. You can’t make the tomato soup any better: sun-ripe aroma in every spoon, little spice, maybe a tad too much sugar. But it tastes incredibly tomato!

not fish not meat
It is a classic from “Lindner” and has been equally delicious for years: Vitello Tonnato . It is freshly produced every day in the Lindner central kitchen in Lichterfelde, you can taste it. The veal – fillet cooked at 110 degrees for about three hours – comes from animal welfare. And, as she says, company spokeswoman Claudia Mehrl brought the basic recipe for the wonderfully creamy sauce from a vacation in Lombardy: light majo with 60 instead of 80 percent fat, the best tuna, a hint of lemon and the perfect spice mixture make up her aroma. Above all, no caper water is used, only the fruit is pureed with fish. Tastes guaranteed also to people who are not caper fans!

Wine must be
The wine trade is in a double crisis: no orders from the catering trade and also the stationary trade can come to a standstill at any time. Holger Schwarz from “Viniculture” continues, sending his two drivers for deliveries, currently with no minimum order value. The bottles are selected on the website of the Charlottenburg shop, which specializes in unvarnished, natural wines. The wonderfully fresh Note di Bianco by winemaker Alessandro Viola, for example, takes you to Sicily, near Palermo. Made from the Grillo grape, it avoids all alcohol, exudes Mediterranean herbs and subtle lemon salinity. In front of the balcony – the sea.

Rooster with Schwips

One of many great dishes from the Saxon Gut Krauscha, a Bioland company out of conviction, which uses discarded laying hens from regional organic farmers, prepares them in their own kitchen, removes the meat from the bone by hand and has it stuck in thick pieces in the glass.

Cedro makes fun
It looks like a huge, bulging lemon with dents , it consists almost entirely of a yellow skin and white subcutis. Italians know what they have in them, with us she is a shop keeper who still wants to be discovered. But cut thinly, marinated only with salt, pepper and olive oil, the Cedro results in a bitter-fruity carpaccio – just a taste. Because if you eighth them, squeeze the pieces tightly into a mason jar, pour them with lemon juice and brine and let them steep for four days, the whole thing results in a kind of salt lemon, with which you can spice things up: egg dishes, grilled dishes and even green cabbage gives them the extra Kick. A boredom killer!
Where? Wherever there are Mediterranean vegetables.
Wormwood against melancholy
Znaida Vermouth awakens the spirits because it tastes so good. It was conceived in the Winsviertel and bottled near Turin, where the triumphal march of fortified wines began in the late 19th century. Unlike its industrially manufactured counterparts, Znaida is not as sweet, it contains ten percent less sugar than usual, and 36 botanicals give it a lively herbal note. Its zesty grapefruit notes ensure a proper length. Vermouth is best drunk on ice, but can also be tasted with soda. If you like it bitter, you can mix a vermouth tonic in a ratio of one to four. So then, on health! fx
