This recipe collection is for my children, Stefan and Karin. All recipes
have been cooked more than once and are family favourites. They come from
a wide variety of sources such as the extended family, friends, our collection
of cookery books, and also from the Internet.
How it all began
When I started working full time again after freelancing from home for
many years, we decided that each family member would be responsible for
the main meal of the day one day each week.
Initially Stefan and Karin cooked under Ulrich's or my supervision, but
they soon learned the necessary skills and are no longer afraid to tackle
even the most complicated recipes.
Both, Stefan and Karin, are currently studying. Stefan is studying towards
a "Post-graduate Diploma in Accounting" at the University of
Stellenbosch and Karin is enrolled at the University of Pretoria for a
Bachelor in Interior Architecture.
Ulrich is the soup cook in the family; he also enjoys cooking on our
Cobb and loves to eat curries and hot dishes.
Helga prefers to cook casseroles and normally prepares the
Stefan loves experimenting in the kitchen and is not put off
by the most complicated recipes.
Karin went through a "mexican phase" and surprised us with
a new mexican dish once a week.
I continuously add to this collection of recipes and also make minor changes
to recipes that we cook often. The recipes are either in German or English
and for those of you that may need a translation there is a small dictionary
Enjoy cooking and ...
... "Guten Appetit!"
