Neugruens Koeche

I have been twice for dinner at Neugruen's.  November 2009 and August 2010,  In both opportunities I was happy about the 60  Euros spent for eating and drinking.  They also decreased prices from 2009 to 2010.  In 2009 the set menu was 44 Euro, in 2010 it decreased to  39 Euro without influence on quality and quantity.  On August 14 Cecilia and I shared both menus.

With aperitivo and a bottle wine the bill was 120 Euro.

Tyranny of the majority

"Democratic decisions can be wrong, unjust and impractical, violate the country’s constitution and even violate basic human rights. They can even relate to issues for which the democratic system is quite simply inadequate".

This is a citation from the article in openDemocracy which discusses the Swiss plebiscit againt the construction of minarets in switzerland.

China Cabbage and Shiitakee Mushrooms

For my last birthday, I got a new cookbook with Asian Recipes from an Australian Chef, delicious stuff. Chinese cooking is not simple, so a Cookbook should help :-). But after having followed some of the recipes, I am already again experimental. The following is a well succeeded one.

You need: a china cabbage, Shiitake Mushrooms, Grated Palm Sugar, Garlic, Ginger, Chinkiang Vinegar, ShaoXiang, which is a Rice Sherry. I found here in my Chinese Shop Hua Diao Wine, what is quite the same.
