As a little appetizer we present you one of the new summer recipes which you will find in our own cooking app, coming in August 2016. Furthermore, we’d like to share a few words.
We don’t belong to those people, who plan years ahead. We don’t strive for longterm goals but do what comes to our mind and makes us happy. We feel privileged to have the opportunity to try out new things. This way, our projects grow and change with us and it won’t get boring.
Almost three years ago we started Krautkopf. A site to show our photos and recipes, that was our idea. One year later, we got to cook for 25 people at our first Private Dinner, the next year, we published our cookbook, and another year later, we work on our next unplanned and not expected project: our Krautkopf App. It will be available in German and English at the app store. Beside 80 recipes you will find 50 new ones we created exclusively for the app. As always, the recipes are seasonal, but we also focused on fast and simple dishes, which of course won’t lack the right amount of Krautkopf. With the terrific tools like grocery list, menu planner and ingredients search it will be easier than ever for you to cook our recipes. We are thrilled about the app!
We want to thank all the people who give us the opportunity and supported us to develop ourselves. Without their impact we might have dreamed a lot but never implemented anything. Thanks, Betty and Philipp, that you convinced us so fast to give our dinner at your beautiful loft, the Fabrik 23. We still love to think back. Thanks Christin and Lisa for talking us out of our fears and to publish our own book. And thanks, Andreas, for knocking on our door at the right time, so that we now can make the next big step. Without you we wouldn’t be where we are now. Of course, we could continue this endlessly, because those who boosted the projects with us are only a small fraction. Our biggest thanks goes out to you all who gave us such great feedback and drive us to new ideas. Thanks to all who let us cook for them and who again cook our recipes for their friends, to all who own our cookbook and hopefully will soon have our app next to their sizzling pans.
In a saucepan, blanch peas in salt water. Then cool rapidly in ice water. Cook rice noodles according to package instructions; also cool rapidly with cold water and drain well.
Mix miso paste, rice vinegar, rice syrup, and sesame oil into a dressing. Halve melon, core, and with a melon baller, cut out balls. Alternatively, peel melon and cut into cubes. Cut cucumber into thin slices and scallions into rings. Coarsely chop peanuts and cilantro.
