Home – English
Hello and welcome to my site. Nice of you to pay me a visit.
Although the primary language of my blog is German I will endeavor from time to time to translate my posts – requests are very welcome! Don’t feel shy. If you like what you see in my pictures just ask for translation of the post in comments and I will do my best to oblige. You will find all posts in English if you click in the categories sidebar menu on ENGLISH.
TheMaskedChef: I love golf. I love cooking. I love good food. And I love my wife! Cooking relaxes me when I am stressed. Cooking calms me when I am cross. Cooking lifts me up when I am depressive. Cooking is as complex as golf – one needs way too much equipment, physical and psychological abilities for multi-tasking, talent and stamina and mostly achieves only a mediocre result.
Soft- and hardware: No smoke without fire. No fire without fuels. No dish without ingredients. No cooking without pots and pans. And you can’t cook without a stove. I am writing about cooking, eating, my personal experience (all this is where I am amateur) , I name my sources and supplies without any commercial interest and I will clean up with the odd myth about the hardware (this is where I am pro – my professional life led me from the porcelain industry into the world of manufacturing cookware).
My recipes, experience, observations and my opinion are public.
My person is not. I am…TheMaskedChef.
Food: My dishes should speak for themselves. I am inspired by Fergus Henderson and Thomas Keller. Sometimes I follow recipes from books. This will be marked in my blog.
Drugs: Wine and other good drinks, cigars and one or the other good spirit.
Rock ’n‘ Roll: The music I listen to when cooking . This could be jazz but classical music, too. Rock (without roll, at times), blues, Chanson. Metal I am not allowed 😉 This will be a subject in one or the other post. The short stories from „Ghost“ (the author prefers to remain anonymous). You can’t hear them but you can let someone read them to you. I will ask the „ghost“ to write some in English.
