Oh, that sort of weather, that sort of day...

Organic lemon curd revisited (Edible gifts)


For those of you who have taken a handmade pledge or just feel unequal to the tumult of the shops, I pass on my rediscovery of last January's lemon curd, just in time for holiday gifting. I gave the first jar to the hosts of a delightful Nikolaus party last Thursday; the second was biding its time in the fridge, just waiting for a sudden social occasion, until I was overcome and snapped open the lid to the heady scent of eggy lemon, then slathered a huge spoonful onto my BioCompany wheat/rye buttermilk bread. But with more lemons and eggs hanging around, I don't regret it one whit.

Goose & the Domäne Dahlem Christmas Market


Mhmm, hearty enough for you? Having been raised on A Christmas Carol it was gratifying to finally try a bit of Christmas goose (though foolishly I didn't order a whole plate for myself). The Domäne Dahlem Christmas market was smaller this year, perhaps because I was there on the first advent weekend, but the generous plate of goose, Grünkohl and potatoes for €7.50 is worth the trip alone.

Domäne Dahlem Christmas Market, December 8th-9th & 15th-16th from 11 am-7 pm. Admission is 1 EUR for adults, 0.50 EUR reduced, and free for children. (map)
