The Easy Way: Currywurst

I made currywurst!!! …but sadly not homemade lol I will be attempting it soon, i’ve been making several dishes lately that I will post :)

Anywhooo, I took the easy way out with this one by buying the (very yummy) ready to eat german sausage :) (Its got a fluffy hotdog like consistency) and I bought the packaged mix of currywurst sauce that you just add water to..so yeah. 5 min meal that delicious but definitely doesn’t compete with the real thing. The wurst just didn’t have that much flavor as it could have and the sauce was good but I definitely could have used some more curry. Anyways, super easy German dish!

Little Noms

So, this the last food post of our trip to Italy :(  But I still have lots more to post from our previous trips (including France and Belgium..so be prepared!)

Alrighty, we stopped at this little bakery. Tiny little authentic place with some great looking stuff :) This here was a delicious savory pastry that was filled with sausage and stracchino cheese. This thing was freaking awesome. Nom approved <3

 

Next was the sweet little berry tart with pistachios on top. Simple yet delicious <3 

Then at our wine tasting we had these delicious little sand-witches! One was creamy butter with anchovies (Weird right? NO!) Lol. Super good, just enough saltiness and the anchovies had a great flavor! Also we had one that was the same except truffle paste stuff <3 Great white truffle flavor!

Homemade Spaghetti

Homemade Spaghetti

So!  Since my trip to Italy i’ve been cooking a lot. I mean I cook anyways but I was just all culinarily inspired… lol. So I decided to take on the challenge of homemade spaghetti sauce with homemade noodles! This meal took several hours to prepare! Here is how it went…Put the tomatoes into boiling water for about 30sec to a min…just until you see the skin crack a little bit.Then place the tomatoes in cold water and get ready to peel! Because of the quick boil the skins will slide right offPeel ’em!Then you half the tomatoes and get all the seeds and water out…to much water and it takes forever for your sauce to cookThen put the halved tomatoes in a pot and start cooking them downNext is getting the dough togethor. Pretty simple with water, flour, oil and eggs.Mix the dough! It’s a tough-ish dough but it should not be so dry it’s crumbly.. :) Make sure you let the dough rest 15min before rolling it out.Roll the dough as thin as possible without tearing it (of course if you have a pasta machine then this step is a whole lot easier haha)Cut your pasta into the shape you like… this dough can also be for ravioli :) When I used oil in my dough I put a bit of truffle oil. <3 It was subtle but great!So all you have to do is boil your noodles and  add seasoning and wine to the sauce (One the tomatoes have disintegrated
a bit) …I also added onions and sausage to mine. Anywho, this stuff is seriously good! If you would like the full recipe just let me know and I’d be happy to type it up for you! :D

Food Review: Aoste Salami

Currywurst is Da Bomb

I love German food! But…I think my favorite is currywurst!!!! (Its the Germans version of fast-food) It has sausage that is grilled, sliced then covered in the curry sauce! The sauce is like barbeque but less sweet with lots of curry ^.^ then  the dish is sprinkled with curry! Its nom! I’ll be attempting to make it soon :) Also pictured in the photo is paprikawurst
