Commissioned Work.

I am a regular at a bar/café (Link) near my workplace. I did take a couple of pictures there last year:


The photo above was instantly liked by a lot of people, so the owner of the bar asked me a couple of weeks ago if I would take some photos of special drinks they are serving in his place.

Here's the result:





All of the pictures were taken and edited with my iPhone 4S. All rights reserved. Drinks can be tested at Blauer Engel in Kiel.

Food Porn. (5)

For the latest installment of our cooking adventures last Saturday, we picked the theme "Golden Fall".
So we tried to stick to autumnal specialties. Here's what came out:

Soup:
Cream of Chanterelle Soup with Truffle Croutons


It was such a pleasure looking at the mushrooms glistening from the butter in the pan...



Entreè:
Pastry with Veal Stew on Lamb's Lettuce with Balsamic Vinaigrette



Snack:
Roasted Bread with Lemon-Parsley Pesto


We came up with this one because we had so much leftover parsley and didn't want to throw it away, so we added some lemon, cheese, olive oil as well as a little salt an pepper and voilà :)
Roasted some bread in the pan and we had the perfect snack.


Main Course:
Lamb Eye of Loin with Chocolate Sauce, Mashed Potatoes and Bacon-wrapped Beans


We roasted the meat sharply in a steel pan briefly from both sides. Then put in some twigs of Rosemary and some garlic cloves and put it in the oven for about 10 minutes. The meat was on point. Rosted brown on the outside, but still rosy and juicy on the inside...perfect.



Dessert:
Pear Mousse with Almond Crunch


As almost always, we didn't really use recipes. Most of the dishes are completely improvised (although of course inspired by recipes) depending on what ingredients we can get our hands on.
