A laarer Sock steht nid. (“An empty sock won’t stand” in Melanie’s native dialect)
A little more than a year ago, when nature started to bloom and spring had sent its first herald, wild garlic, I started my food blog “das Mundwerk.” Growing up in a small village bakery, I have always been blessed with fresh, homemade food. Our family’s vegetable and fruit garden was my playground, the yolks of our chickens’ eggs shined brighter than the sun, and we always cherished my grandmother’s cooking. These are the moments and culinary highlights I strive to capture and share on my blog. I like to present food as a sensual experience, created from local ingredients – vegetables, fruit, cheese, meat – light, from your own garden, a neighbouring farmer or local markets. Recipes that call for no special culinary skills but sensitivity and passion for good food.
