Hello food lovers. Yes, I have been absent for some time. I spent a wonderful holiday in Colombia, seeing friends from Uni. We had such a great time and Colombia is truly amazing. Beautiful landscape, friendly people and a great atmosphere in Bogotá. Of course I also returned with a lot of culinary inspiration.
Back home, I am making our balcony ready for the summer by putting the herb and veg pots outside. Finally! Tomatoes, zucchini, pepper, arugula and various herbs. This year’s urban gardening project is becoming huge.
I also stocked up on Marjoram, which I used today for a Marjoram soup with crayfish.
The soup perfectly brings out the slightly sweet and intense flavours of Marjoram. Easy to make this soup is a perfect starter or lunch. Especially now as you can find fresh Marjoram everywhere.
This recipe is from a cookbook by Tobias Sudhoff, a musician, cabaret artist and amateur chef from my hometown Münster. The book is called “Das unverschämt geile Kochbuch” (more here).
It is more a book for the love of food than a “normal” cookbook. The recipes come with a story or a little bit of an entertaining background. The recipes have no measurements, which I find really great, as it makes you engage with the recipe more intensively. You can purchase the book via Amazon here. I can definitely recommend it!
