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.

The cooks
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
    Ulrich is the soup cook in the family; he also enjoys cooking on our Cobb and loves to eat curries and hot dishes.
  • Helga
    Helga prefers to cook casseroles and normally prepares the desserts.
  • Stefan
    Stefan loves experimenting in the kitchen and is not put off by the most complicated recipes.
  • Karin
    Karin went through a "mexican phase" and surprised us with a new mexican dish once a week.

Status quo
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 under glossary.

Enjoy cooking and ...

... "Guten Appetit!"
