After our awesome discovery last Saturday of Benedict, we were actually thinking about going there again on the Sunday as we hadn't yet ordered everything on the menu ;)
But then, in the course of the afternoon whilst playing with the little ones on a nearby playground, our friends showed us this little gem for a take-away coffee...
No matter how you try to twist it, week-ends only have two breakfasts...so better pick carefully especially if you are a total breakfast addict as I am!
We were in Berlin last week-end which is, if not THE capital of breakfasts, at least a breakfast paradise. Not only is the foodie culture one of the best I know, Berlin also has the perfect mix of design and coolness that goes with it...
I always wanted to experience a real afternoon tea in London - somehow it seemed so magical and cosy and delicious all at the same time!
There is a lot of choice in London, however for me, it had to be Fortnum & Mason's - there is just something about Fortnum's which makes it the perfect traditional British establishment...
Recently at the doctor's - in what now feels like weekly dates! - she asked me what Baby Lifestylette eats most.
To which I answered without hesitation: Quiche.
She just loves quiche so much that I feel I cook one at least once a week.
"Oh, I used to eat quiche a lot as well, I loved it, but for some years now, I am avoiding eating meat so I don't have quiche as much anymore unfortunately" was her answer.
I found this so interesting, because quiche doesn't have to be at all with meat.
My German girlfriends with children have invited us to some baking afternoons where they bake with their children "Plätzchen" - a sort of little cookie which one bakes & decorates together and offers in the advent time in Germany.
It is a beautiful tradition.
Except for zero-baking-skills me.
Using the excuse of an evening invitation in Lille, we recently spent a day in the capital of Flanders, where we were lucky to see the city at its best with the Indian summer sun shining on its red brick buildings.
Indeed, as soon as we are in Lille, we always try and make some time to shop some "classics" to bring back to Germany where we currently live.
We started with a café au lait at one of the many cafés of the Grand Place, Lille's main square.
Enjoying my day trip in Düsseldorf last week, it struck me how bowl food seemed to have taken over the city. I decided to try one for lunch, curious to finally understand the thing about bowls as I have noticed that people are going crazy for this. My first encounter with 'bowl food' was a Poké Bowl in Berlin, earlier this year - by the way in a great location: Bikini Berlin, full of other great food places and pop up stores for clothes, presents, art; so do check it out if in Berlin, I loved...
