Meike Winnemuth: to make it short
Meike Winnemuth writes columns, since you can recognize the letters, since 2013, also for the star. Long as they had a colossal inferiority complex compared to authors who can do 900-page Tome. In the meantime, she has resigned to the fact that it is a text Sprinter with short-range brain, and is committed to the Northern German Motto “Not long time”.

And what if a ravenous Wolf, in the teenager age, the for two to eat?

Horrible.” His own recipes are want to”, mostly for a small group of people, vorfreudig and wine thirsty around a table and what to enjoy. The ingredients measurement in cooking recipes (other than baking recipes) more about. When well cooked, is already a little over.”
So far Bert. Of not: didn’t cook right, as always, only in a point that Singles. I cook with the greatest of pleasure for me. Almost every day, since I had a garden, I dig me at any time, a couple of potatoes or a couple of salad you can pick the leaves and otherwise, depending on the season, sugar snap peas, pole beans, artichokes, wild asparagus, Jerusalem artichoke and tomato harvest.

Who is it but also I earned:. When people say that it’s worth it to cook for a single, I can’t believe it. Why not, please?

For guests, it makes for hours and hours crooked itself but you dine with a in the straps cheese sandwich Stand down? Not to view.

A High rib in red wine for a couple of hours at low temperature in the furnace to disintegrate, meanwhile, a bake tart with apricot and Frangipane and in the afternoon, about four, or at night, to the eleven at a table (because who is it scissors?) is one of the biggest pleasure of the pleasure of non-poor living Alone. This is not to be worth it? Bullshit. It’s worth it every single Time.
