Hello My Dear Family and Friends,
Now that I am about to leave Marburg, I have started to reflect on these past six weeks. One of the most amazing thing about my language course has been the wonderful field trips and experiences that we have been given.
A week ago we had the opportunity to participate in a cooking class. Our teacher was the most kind hearted woman.
She gave us a recipe book which included a handwritten recipe from her grandmother. And she set the table with cloth that was handspun and handsewn by her grandmother as well! Also on the beautiful table she set were flowers and grapes from her garden.
She welcomed us with Secco (bubbly wine from Germany) and these delightful pastries filled with cheese and grapes.
And then we started cooking! Our teacher had prepared different stations for each dish.
I got to make the potato dish with Drew. Which I took as a great honor because Germans LOVE their potatoes!! So we embarked on our mission. First pealing 2 kg of potatoes and then shredding them.
I also participated in the making of Spaetzle, which was great fun. First three lovely members of our group made the dough.
After the preparation we got to feast! First we had salads
Yumm! All in all it was a wonderful way to spend a Wednesday night! Until next time,
