Do you also like to gift advent calendars? Of course DIY is the most beautiful. If you cannot do that – I’ve picked out my culinary favorites from small producers. This year I have given away the home-made ‘Fresh from the farm’, for which you can choose from all sorts of home made mustard, salt mixtures, spreads, honeys and vinegars. I am already looking forward to this coffee calendar with 24 different single origin beans, which we have ordered for ourselves. Btw if you order by Monday, November 27th, then it will arrive on time for December 1st!

If you are still looking for sustainable gift inspiration for Christmas, then I have something for you.

“Friendship is the salt of life.”

This summer, I learned something big about friendship: that after courage (often) something very beautiful follows. And because I know that sometimes it takes an impulse from the outside, and I’ve experienced it as something so important and warming, I would like to promote this kind of courage to jump over-the-own-shadow.
In the end, the moments we can share with friends (… and with the loved ones and la famille), with people who know us – and who we know – since a long time are so beautiful and important. So if there is someone you would like to contact again since a long time: just do it. Do it! It may be that you both end up after 5, 10, 15 years and not even know where they went.

And then you may have a toast with rosé, or with rosy salt on buttered bread.
For as friendships are the salt of life, the salt is the best friend of vegetables.
Or pasta.

Or buttered bread.

Life has happened quite a lot, lately.
Travel, ideas, health, food, reorientation, reading, experiments, lots of conversations about taste and emotion, and finally two moves (one with the sweetheart and one in the commuting town).
And because I also encounter so much goodness in real life and in my work afar from recipes but in regard to cooking and eating, I have been thinking for some time how I can let more of it flow in here. And I do have an idea about this, more on that very soon.

Well, but first a few nice things because August it is, or because it sometimes even feels a little like summer up in the German North, and, because:
Do you already know the dancing farmer? Alone the video is great, but then Jay Lavery has a permaculture farm, too, a lovely Facebook page and has been on the Ellen show (best to watch the video on his FB site, on Youtube the song had to be removed for copyright reasons.)

No matter if you are expecting guests and are in the midst of a houseshining, want to slow dance later this night around the kitchen tabel or if you rather spend those days between years with a cordless screwdriver, like I do.
Maybe this music mix is a nice company.

Happy new year, let it glitter!

Kindest, Anni

Of course 6th the wonderful healing broth book, since which arrival always a large pot is bubbling on my stove,  7th the awesome (I finally yesterday held it in my hand) healthy baking book of my dearest friend Veronika, 8th this beautifully illustrated first cookbook by Apartamento, in which cooks and foodies were asked for their favorite recipes, and 9th this book, discovered via always inspiring Frl Text, with drawings (!) by chef Ferran Adria. And certainly 10. this record of a band, which I discovered way too late.
