Let’s call this for what it really is – it is a blog mostly about food. We are always talking about, eating too much, over eating or seeing some church. Of the last 8 posts 6 of them are about food. We had a little brunch today with Dobrescu’s. Simple brunch with little to no work. […]
Today we finally got a chance to get together with our good old neighbours we first met in our first house in Pleasantview some 15 years ago. We have been friends ever since. In his yard, Jeff built an amazing pizza oven, a project like no other! The pizza is all home made with love, […]
If we are not eating, we are actively thinking about what to make and eat next. Seriously, that is what we do. Today is another lazy Thanksgiving weekend morning. On the go for breakfast are fresh, homemade Belgian waffles! Life is good.
Thanksgiving is great. Three days off, three days of eating and relaxing. It is great to be home for this one. While Christmas has its own charm, Thanksgiving is special. It is time to take pause and reflect, time to be thankful and appreciative. Time to spend with family, time to relax and appreciate everyone […]
I am officially on the threshold of packing vs clean up. This mining the last bit of shopping with a s quick stop for breakfast at our favourite cafe La Violetta.
We are at T – 15 hours before we pack the car and the family takes the train for the trip to Frankfurt. Family from Poland stops by for a quick visit to say hello! We send the kids off to town in the early afternoon to visit at least one museum, and to have as much […]
This again will be filled under “Christ what were we thinking” category which is the predominant theme of ours when we go out to eat. After a wonderful dinner at the Golden Horn we rolled out of the restaurant, and rolled down the hill from the castle side, across the main square and to 4D our favourite […]
Well, it started to rain, so instead of going to see the Little Mermaid statue we decided to take an early lunch. Henrik suggested a great place that serves traditional open face Danish sandwiches, with just about anything you can imagine on them. There is 40 thousand types of herring, from pickled to curried, eel, meatballs, chicken […]
After a long day out, a well deserved dinner. We sat down for a dinner at the Castle Hotel Petry where we are staying to have a nice and relaxing dinner. Good food, good company – good time.
We are back to Monterosso which is one stop from Levano. We decided to stop here for the good gelato, all gelato here is good but we just like this one the most, and a nice stroll down the beach. Since Monterosso has a huge beach that is easily accessible, about 50 m from the train […]
There are 47 restaurants in Levanto, we found this one – La Picea, on the outskirts of the old town – and it just happens to be THE number one rated restaurant in the city. This place is mostly for takeouts but there are some tables and chairs for people like us. It is all […]
If you don’t know what you are looking for, you would more than likely walk by this place without giving it a second look. The place is just outside the main part of the old town in the middle of a residential neighbourhood, off on a side street in the middle of nowhere really. This, however, […]
We drive by this place every time we go up or down from Buccia Nera Agriturismo where we are staying. Today we decided to stop by for dinner. The place is a short drive, about 2km, from where we are staying, down the crazy road, it always looks busy and it has some spectacular views […]
We found a great little restaurant in Arezzo called Luck, the actual Italian name is Osteria da Luchino. Off the main street, no English menu, small and charming and just perfect. We decided to try the Italian way of eating dinner. You start off with a small pasta dish, then have the main course with […]
Happy Anniversary to Kasia and Volker. We are out celebrating their 17th Wedding Anniversary today. Kasia and Volker suggested we go to one of their favourite restaurants just outside Nuremberg. Once again we did not manage to get all the pictures of the food for the blog but we did manage to get the desserts into […]
So, a brisk drive in the morning to Ribeauvillé – France where we spent a lovely weekend in March. No traffic, no accidents just a wide open road., I think we managed to shave off about an hour of the trip. The breakfast did not quite work out the way we planned but we still managed […]
We are going out for brunch today, not the one filled with endless lines of chaffing dishes filled with food – we are thinking something more simple, less filling but equally as delicious. Sunday Brunch is more like Parisian Breakfast and no one does this better than the French themselves. We are not sure which of the […]
Because it is Easter and a lot of places are closed, or rather not opened for dinner we have to plan our meals carefully. We found a great place in the next town, which is about 2.5km away that is open for dinner on Sunday and Monday. Everything on the menu is simply amazing […]
We have arrived at Agriturismo ai Casoni, just outside Treviso – where we are going to be spending the next 5 days. This is a small family run agriturismo that produces its own wine and Prosecco as well as the meats and fruits and vegetables. So, as you walk in and are greeted by the hosts […]
Let’s face it – I think that by now, our need to travel is largely dictated by the fact that we don’t want to be recognized as “are those people eating again?” That’s us, we travel and eat and eat and eat, but it is soooooo good, we simply can’t help ourselves. From this day […]
We have arrived in Ljubliana, Slovenia. We are sticking to our strictly regimented schedule. Drive, check in, go out to eat!
According to some sources, including the restaurant itself of course, the Siftskeller has been serving food since 803, making it the oldest restaurant in Europe. Not 1803 – that’s not a typo. Eight-oh-three. Although we can’t personally verify this data, we can certainly attest to the quality of food and service. We started with a […]
In two hours we are back here for dinner. Judging by the menu it should be nothing short of spectacular!
It has been almost six hours since our last meal. We had a short drive from Sankt Georgen, we got into our apartment, parked the car, had a nap and came out to eat something. Back by popular demand we are back at Goldene Kugel – kids favorite place in Salzburg.
We are back to our favourite restaurant in the old town – for a good traditional German dinner. For a flame roasted Nuremberg sausages – this place is a real treat.
This then is a traditional Polish dessert. It is only made in certain parts of Poland and it is now Boris’s favourite dessert. A basic sękacz is made of 60 eggs, a lot of butter, milk and a bit of flour. A large sękacz will be made of 80 or more eggs. Once batter is […]
It’s dinner time. We are down at our local restaurant Mullers. Great authentic German food – no cooking involved in this meal.
These were done just right with mushed green peas. Not only did we have a Polish waitress her uncle lives in Edmonton. Small world.
Right, so with Mozejkos here it was inevitable that we would be going back to L’Osteria – it is everyone’s favourite pizza joint in Nuremberg and even mid week you need reservations to get it – it’s a crazy place. After pizza we went next door for some gelato.
We know a guy, who knows a guy that told us to follow him to a parking lot on the outskirts of the city in an industrial area to meet this Italian guy who comes to Nuremberg once a month with a van full of goods. He drives 1100km in one day to bring fresh […]
Paris was angry with us today, or at least that is what it seemed like to us. We got to the metro station this morning and it turned out that our 5 days metro passes have already expired. No big deal, we thought, we will just get a daily ticket. This metro station however, does […]
We just sat down to a fancy New Years Eve dinner at Auberge de Venise. We are getting a set 5 course menu with Bellini to start with, followed by fresh olives, bruschetta and fresh shrimp and we have not even ordered any food yet.
After a quick coffee at Carrousel du Louvre and a bit of well deserved rest we headed out to the Marais. This once again is a place we really loved last year so we went back for more this year. We had a wonderful dinner at a little Italian bistro for something different. L’Alimentari had some wonderful […]
We will file this under – what were we thinking eating this much? Stary Dom is an old charming restaurant in Warsaw, Mokotów. The service is good, the food is amazing and the desserts are to die for. On the menu, steak tartar, zurek, wild boar roast, roasted duck and baked salmon. Next time we […]
We are going hard core today. We are trying to take in as much as we can of Salzburg before we head out home. I think we will need to come back here for a closer look when it is not as wet. We are a total wet weather amateurs, but we are managing. We […]
The drive to Cologne was rather uneventful and slowish. We are exploring the city and found this good looking place. We are back to taking pictures of food.
We have walked past this street about one hundred times, literally. It’s on the way to the Lego among other things. Not only did we find these very modern looking buildings right within the castle walls but we also found one of the best Sushi restaurants in the city called Sushi Glas. In Alberta there […]
This just very well may be the tastiest discovery in Denmark. They are called Berliners. Deep fried dough full of plum butter or raspberry jam coated in a pound of sugar. It’s on the daily diet!
Traffic is going no where fast, we are at about 6 hours of driving and about 550 km. We are about 60 km from Hamburg. Hopefully by the time we finish eating the traffic will thin out.
It’s official after much searching and a lot of fiddling around we fitted the kitchen in today and made a first proper cooked home dinner tonight. We feel so civilized.
File this under: what was I thinking? Just to make sure that the first time I managed to eat the entire pizza at L’Osteria, was not a fluke, I challenged myself to do it again. Once you eat half of this pizza, it then starts fitting onto the plate. The pizza is about 42 cm […]
My wife is turning 29 today, once again. A great excuse to go out for a pizza. Kids in bed, and we are out on town.
Sunday is a perfect day for brunch. Today we went to the downtown apartment and had lunch with Volker’s mom and two great Danes, who have been our neighbours for the last two months. This is a proper way to laze around 6 hours – sitting around and drinking and eating.
It has not even been three hours since the breakfast was cleaned up and here is lunch.
By lake Garda a small family of whales was spotted wobbling towards a restaurant. It’s been at least 6 minutes since our last meal, we have done a lot of hard work, lazing around the pool and having a 3 hour nap which of course requires more nourishment. Tomorrow I will simply cut a hole […]
Today is Kasia’s and Volker 16th wedding anniversary so staying at Hotel Dogana was not an option. The winery at Tenuta Le Presa was a more appropriate choice and one more befitting the occasion. To celebrate this we went out for a dinner at a local spot called Hostaria la Cross where German really is […]
We are planning a short trip to Italy next week. Today we decided to go for a pizza and some pasta to start getting our guts used to, not only the wonderful flavours of Italy, but also to the crazy portion sizes. At L’Osteria, a quiet little place on a side street in Nuremberg, real […]
Many of you might be thinking that this adventure of ours is all fun and games, and you would be right for the most part but… In order to give you the best and the most immersive and realistic impression of this trip we face a huge burden of having to try and test as […]
It’s pit stop time. After a few hours of bad weather, we finally got some sunshine about 40km from the German border. We decided to stop for a little break and have some food. You might say that this really is just an average stop, on an average autobahn in the middle of Germany. Kind […]
