Jens has been talking about balanced eating and food travel on his food blog for more than six years now. While on his travels he takes inspiration from local dishes and adds these to his blog. He places great emphasis on recipes that are easy to cook at home and taste good. His recipes range from cream of asparagus soup, Laotian beef salad right through to almond fritters.


Chaotic cook Mirja quickly learned to love the city and Swabian cuisine upon arrival in Stuttgart. Cooking is her passion and she’s always trying out new things — but every now and then things go wrong and some minor kitchen disaster ensues. All this and more is covered in her blog, where she generally presents quick and easy dishes. She’s already published two books, one about pasta and one about sweet treats.
