Low Fat German Potato Salad

Technically, there is no such thing as German potato salad. There are many regional variations and most families will follow their own recipes. In Northern Germany it’s common to make potato salad with mayonnaise. In the South, however, a mix of broth, vinegar and oil is more popular.

Unsurprisingly, eggs á la Gordon Ramsay were amazing. The texture was perfect – light, fluffy and creamy. I can only recommend this and am already looking forward to next weekend!

Ćevapčići (or Ćevapi) traditionally belong to the Balkan kitchen, however they are also very common in Slovenia and you will find them on most restaurant menus.

Whenever we barbecue Ćevapčići are a must!

I’ve had dumplings before, usually either steamed or (deep) fried. However, the consistency of these dumplings was so much nicer! After a few attempts at home I came up with the perfect solution: steaming and frying the little dough bags!

A good dumpling tastes fresh so it’s always best to make the dough from scratch and to use fresh ingredients. Also, I went for a vegetarian filling of spring onion, green paprika, soy bean sprouts and pak choi. If you’re looking for filling inspiration just have a quick search for “jiaozi filling” and you’ll find lots of tasty suggestions.

Soft Pretzel – Laugenbrezel

There are many different kinds of pretzels but this one is my favourite. Soft pretzels are soft (surprise!) and salty and taste magnificent with cheese and cold cuts. In German they’re called Laugenbrezeln (lye pretzel) because they’re briefly cooked in lye before baking.

To be honest, I was very surprised at how easy it was to make soft pretzels. As mentioned before, I am not very gifted when it comes to baking so I was a little apprehensive about making pretzels at home. However, there was nothing to worry about and only very little that can go wrong ;)

In addition to the traditionally shaped pretzel I usually make a few pretzel sticks/buns and some pretzel bites for variety.
