  •   lifewitholive Homemade potstickers are the best. 1d
  •   wednesdaychef @lexyjax I really liked it. Opened my eyes to a whole other world (fig. and lit.). It has some weak spots in the second half, but I sped through it all the same. The first half is truly astonishing writing. So good. 1d
  •   bakingsunshine How did you find your book club? I'm not sure if many German cities have them 1d
  •   wednesdaychef @bakingsunshine it's a long story, but basically through my book! We're a group of North Americans... But if you can't find one, start your own! So easy, such fun. You just have to find some friends who like to read... 1d
  •   lexyjax Great, thanks for sharing! 1d
  •   bakingsunshine Thanks Luisa. How fun that your book helped with finding your book club! You're right, I should just start one. I was hoping to make new friends through a book club, preferably English-speaking expats 1d

wednesdaychef There are a few spots left in the food writing class that @rachelaliceroddy and I are teaching at the Anna Tasca Lanza cooking school in Sicily next month. I already know that for me it will be one of those life experiences I never forget. More information, plus the itinerary, is on my blog (link in profile)! 4d

wednesdaychef @dinneralovestory's new book is so funny, smart, and inspiring, and has so many slap-your-forehead-brilliant ideas about getting dinner on the table every night and keeping your sanity while you do so that I literally read it with a big, silly grin on my face. I love it even more than I thought I would. It makes a perfect Mother's Day or Father's Day present, but you don't need to wait for a special occasion, really. If you've got a kid, or know someone with a kid, this book is gold. , Jenny! 7d

wednesdaychef Regram from @thedinnerspecial with whom I had the most delightful interview a few months ago. Check his profile for the link to the podcast and a youtube clip in which I talk about my desert island food () and my very favorite blogs. ・・・
I had such a wonderful time chatting with @wednesdaychef about her travels, writing and her food journey. (She's so super nice!) Being a new parent, I also took the opportunity to talk with her about cooking for little ones and other parent-y things. It was fun! [Luisa's #podcast episode is in profile link] 1w

  •   wednesdaychef @kuchenpartei crazily enough, if you're looking for something in English, I can't! But there's an excellent out-of-print book called Kaffeehaus by Rick Rodgers on Viennese and Hungarian baking, if you can find it... 7d

wednesdaychef America, your vegetables bring tears to my eyes. Germany, we've got a loooong way to go. (Snapped during my own personal Soviet refugee moment at the Newton Whole Foods yesterday.) cc: @kochtail 2w
  •   wednesdaychef @jujudo123 thanks for the shopping tips! Hate to repeat myself, but I'm not saying Germany/Berlin doesn't have any veg; it's just that compared to the quality and breadth of what's available in the US, it's pretty slim pickings. @lula_deli_berlin oh, wonderful - can't wait to check them out. Thanks! 2w
  •   jujudo123 ? You asked me where I buy vegetables... There might be quite a few supermarkets in Germany with very poor choice of vegetables and strangely enough the worst supermarkets are those somewhere in little towns. But in big cities like Hamburg, Berlin etc you find the big names offering wide range of fresh & best quality veggies. 2w
  •   wednesdaychef @jujudo123 I feel like this is a frustrating conversation to have on Instagram, in such limited space. I am not talking about buying strawberries in winter or kale in summer (although there ARE delicious summer varietals of kale that one can buy in the US and that I know grow beautifully in Berlin because I've seen it at a garden show in Britz). I find it a little humorous to be told that I'm simply not looking in the right places. I know the Berlin produce scene extensively. And it is not comparable to the produce in the US, period. Incidentally, your comment that Berlin offers a "wide range of fresh & best quality veggies" just proves my point that it's a Germany-wide "problem". You can disagree with me on this, but it makes me assume you don't really understand the situation because to me (and many others, I might add) it is relatively cut-and-dried. 2w
  •   liveasyoudream The bitter leafy greens are very uncommon in The Netherlands too, I've never heard of most of the varieties you're mentioning. And really, you can eat dandelion greens? We just weed them (might just be me?). Maybe you should start a leafy-green-awareness-campaign ;-). My coworkers campaigned for Broccoli last year - bus stop ads and everything - and it was great (meant to put veggies in the spotlight instead of burgers). 2w
  •   wednesdaychef @liveasyoudream I would love that! 2w
  •   whatwdneilyoungdo I had to google pictures of kale and show them to my German friends when I was there because they had no idea what I was talking about! They still had never seen it before. 1w
  •   giuliapines I'll say! Took Johannes to Wegman's last weekend in Ithaca (up there visiting my sister) and it was as much of a revelation for him as it was for me. I feel bad because the longer we're together, the longer it opens his eyes to how deficient Germany is in the produce dept. We went to a bar in Boston that had 50 different beers on tap (20 or so IPAs of course) and he couldn't stop telling people about it... ::sigh:: 1w
  •   traceypierson OMG! I hail from Canada and I've been living in Berlin for almost 2 years... AND STILL HAVE NO RELIABLE SOURCE FOR FRESH KALE!!!! WTF?? Isn't this the land of Grünkohl?! Geez!!! 3d

wednesdaychef Continuing the magazine discussion from a few weeks back, I have *really* enjoyed these latest issues of Food & Wine I found at my father's house (my stepmother's a subscriber). Great travel stories (@giselaatlarge, your piece on Crete made me want to hop on a plane immediately), interesting, good-looking yet still simple and achievable recipes (West African chicken kabobs, miso-radish tea sandwiches, Scandinavian rye bread), Ray Isle's article on one Spanish biodynamic vintner's attempt to make cavas that rival Champagne, a subject near and dear to my heart, and mentions/features of both the woman behind the Rare Tea Company, (whose mint tea is life-changing) and Sasha Martin, a blogger whose memoir Life From Scratch moved me immensely. Color me impressed. What do you all think? 2w
