My German Corner

Why I want to be mentor in this category:
I have made my repertoire of German recipes over and over again, always with delighted complimentals


What inspires me in this category:
My mother, her mother and her grandmother were all fabulous cooks, who owned restaurants in Bavaria.


Experience:
My mother owned a German deli and restaurant, so my exposure to Bavarian food comes naturally. While my mother has passed away, I have continued to recreate her dishes for my brothers and passed the love of German food on to my son and niece. I'm trying to document how to make these dishes on my food blog and creating my own cookbook so that these recipes will not be lost.


Biggest Lesson Learned:
I cook with the freshest ingredients possible. I stick with authentic recipes, being careful not to "Americanize" the German food that I grew up with-- I did live there early in my childhood, too.


Books, classes, teachers that have helped me:
None. Just family heritage.


Education, Awards, Pro Experience:
I have no formal training-- just a passion for cooking and the patience to photograph and explain how to make the dishes on my food blog.

My Tips:

  • Read the recipe careful and prepare your ingredients ahead of time, so you don't find out you're missing something when it's too late!

My Soup Corner

Why I want to be mentor in this category:
Why not? My soups rock!


Experience:
What German mom isn't a pro at making chicken soup? From there, I've perfected the art of making homemade stocks and all kinds of soups-- without a recipe.


Biggest Lesson Learned:
Soups are one of the easiest meals to make! If you start with a good stock, and know how to make a mire poix, then you are on your way to making a variety of hearty and tasty soups! It's also economical.


Books, classes, teachers that have helped me:
I read a lot of cookbooks and find inspiration from other food blogs. I visualize the flavors and make them come together.


Education, Awards, Pro Experience:
No formal training. Just an instinct for combing flavors until Soup's Ready!

My Tips:

  • Don't be afraid to keep tasting, and seasoning until it tastes right. I never use table salt-- only kosher salt or sea salt. Go easy, be patient. You can always add more, but it's hard to take away too much!
