Hearty sweet potato soup with a hint of chilli, perfect for cold days or when we get tired of root vegetables in winter.
After all the easy and quick recipes, it is time for something more spectacular, in both the looks and the taste department. Before I get on with the tart though, I want to stress again, even though I state it in my bio, I am not a native English speaker. I have learned English as […]
It is embarrassing to admit. This year in February, for the first time in my life, together with girl-friend we booked tickets and just went for a “city-break”. I have never done that before; don’t ask me why, I have no idea. “Just” is also a bit of an overstatement in that sentence. It took […]
I sometimes discover things in our fridge. Suddenly under a pile of salad there are tomatoes that have their best time behind them. It might be an unpopular opinion but I really dislike soft tomatoes. It brought misunderstandings into the household in the past if I hadn’t gone myself to choose the hardest, nearly green […]
This is a story of how places become victims of their own success and magic dissolving over a cold chicken. I still remember the first time I went to Karma Ramen. We flew in to Vienna at 7:20 flight from Warsaw, with a massive hangover from my brother’s 18 y.o. party. Truth be told, […]

A lot is happening recently. I don’t want to bore you with details, yet I felt I owe you a bit of explanation about this prolonged silence. I am hoping to be back soon, with more stories, recipes and adventures. For the last couple of weeks I felt like I was a heroine of Kafka’s […]
In the last couple of days Austria is experiencing a really heavy snowfall. Vienna, however, resists and continues to be grey and wet. There aren’t many things worse then cleaning a dog covered in mud, so we decided to look for a place with snow. This time we decided for Mayerling.
I am quite aware I might be the last one to not have all the Christmas gifts ready. Last year I was so organised! By this time we already had everything bought, packed, and put in boxes for the easier transport, as we were having a big trip to Poland and straight to Germany. This […]
This is my first post about Viennese food scene. I love to cook, but equally much we like to eat in Restaurants, Beisls and so on. Vienna has plenty to offer, especially if you are willing to look outside the holy trinity of Plachutta, Figlmüller and Sacher. I want to start with a restaurant that […]
