Vegetable soup with two dumplings

Blessed are those who have their own gardens and greenhouses in the countryside, and horses, dogs, cats, and chickens. Yes, yes, it would be another story of escaping the city and falling in love with their hometown. But so did the experienced restaurant owners, sisters Steffi and Lisa, when they realized they had to get away from the hustle and bustle of Munich, a “cosmopolitan city with a heart,” back to their whites and whites. Blue birthplace in the heart of the family. They wanted to return to their origins and find a new foundation for their lives and diet. It worked for them as it did for many Berliners who moved to Brandenburg. However, Elisabeth Grindmayer and Stephanie Haßelbeck have published their own blogs as well as a proper (cooking) book about rural life. Both have the title “Farmmade”. Of course, that says it all.

So they spread what new rural refugees are also discovering and what their grandfathers (who accidentally gave them the greenhouse) already know: eating and cooking locally and in season is the best. In the book, they guide the reader through the four seasons with recipes, product information, and great tips. Delicious along the way to radish and wild herb tortillas, ground elder and apple mint couscous, wild garlic scones with mountain cheese, zucchini cookies with apple chutney, spelt kaiserschmarn with roasted plums or stewed beef with root vegetables You just need to go. You will learn right away about preparing sourdough, raising chickens, and tomatoes.
