Your very own GARTEN – in Berlin

April 15th, 2014

Die Küchenkräuter, die du in den kleinen Pappbecher-Sets von Ikea heranzüchten wolltest sind schon kurz nach dem Aufkeimen kläglich verschrumpelt? Keinen Balkon für Tomaten? Kein Geld für den Biosupermarkt? Sehnsucht nach Land? Dann aber schleunigst eine Parzelle vom Bauerngarten gesichert, denn die Gartensaison ist eröffnet!

Lets come together,
Right now,
Oh yeah,
In sweet harmony.

Travel Like a Local – My Plus One spreads its wings

April 8th, 2014

Have you ever got that nagging feeling, while visiting a new a city for the first time, that you’ve simply been following the crowd and ticking-off sites from the same pre-packaged list that everyone else has, while cutting a well worn path across the city’s tourist traps?  It may…

Umami: Flavour hunting with Noctua

April 4th, 2014

When you were a child you may have learned in school, as I did, of the four basic tastes: Sweetness, sourness, bitterness, saltiness. What I wasn’t taught (damn you Mrs Hamilton!) was that there is an elusive fifth taste: Umami.
