Hi Dudes,

I have just arrived in Düsseldorf, my first place to stay on my kitchen tour. Sebo has invited me to stay in his kitchen and prepare a stay-at-home-dude dining experience. After a walk through the old city center of Düsseldorf and the christmas market, I moved on to the nice Rine promenade – the weather is cold with blue sky and sunshine and big ships are shipping on the river. I spent 15 months working in Düsseldorf and I really love this city and the people!

Tonight I will prepare a variety of spanish tapas. I will post the ingredients and the pictures tomorrow after my hangover. Stay tuned!

Update:

My hangover has last longer than I expected. I had a really nice time in Düsseldorf and say a big thank you to the kitchen hosts Sebo (with Anna and Torben) and Dirk! Sebo and Torben have designed a stay-at-home-dude t-shirt for the event in Düsseldorf that shows the skyline of the city – amazing!

Tapas on Friday were a big success.
Next day, together with Dirk, we prepared chicken breast with leek-tarragon sauce and pasta. First time I used tarragon and we liked it.
