A New Beginning with a Bite of ...?

When I launched this website here, I was inspired by the idea of sharing my way of life with others. I wanted to be creative in my posts, yet academic. So it was evident for me to build the blog on the concept of minimalism.

I received a lot of criticism because I was often told I am not a minimalist. I think many people still misunderstand the term. It's not about absolute renunciation, self-flagellation, and asceticism. It's about getting rid of ballast and the focus on passions and the things that are individually important to a person.

 

However, this post should not go beyond that here. During the first posts, I already noticed that my spectrum of interests is much broader than minimalism. It was challenging to subordinate the content that was in my head to the blog's label. I wanted to deal with political issues, like trumpism, but also coffee specific matters - do you see an agreement with minimalism? At the same time, I realized that I was losing the drive for more of content: too quickly everything was said that was important for a simple life in my eyes. I've been maintaining the lifestyle for almost two years, but blog about it? I had to find out that this isn't my cup of coffee.


I love Bergkäse. The name, translated to "mountain cheese," refers to a number of varieties of cheese produced in the Alps. The texture is rather hard, sometimes with small holes or cracks, the flavour strong and often a bit nutty.

A New Beginning

Anyone who follows me on social media (Instagram) or read my blog post (Link) knows that I have three passions: Science, travel, food.

That's why this blog will be about these things in the future.

 

Food

The starting point, of course, is food. I want to illuminate the ingredients behind delicious food. All too often you only see Instagram-able food, but how important the selection of ingredients is, that's what most bloggers don't show. Therefore, one focus will be the right choice of food and its appropriate preparation.

 

A bite of ...?

Besides, I would like to bring journeys and meal naturally into a reconciliation. That's why the blog is called "a bite of ...". I would like to give you an insight into the diverse culinary delights around the globe. For example, there may soon be a blog series like "a bite of Kazakhstan" or much more specifically "a bite of Kyoto's delicacies."

If it's possible, and people aren't too humble or shy for the camera, I want to portray the people behind the food. The people who prepared the dish, like my tireless mother for us children when we were school children. She had to have a meal for three children on the table every lunchtime - so to speak "a bite of my Mother's dishes."

 

I hope you will stay tuned and enjoy all kinds of food around the globe together with me - or even here in Germany, regionally in Munich, with my own recipes and ideas.

 

Please leave me a comment on how you feel about that?

 

Yours,

Sara
