Soufflé au Chocolat!

Nutella lover? Soufflé lover? The perfect combo: introducing the heavenly Soufflé de Nutella!

Be sure that a hot and well-risen soufflé, fresh from the oven, will always delight your guests. But in this case, when Nutella shows up, trust me, everybody’s gonna truuuly fall for it!!

Remember: It’s ALL about timing! You have to take them out of the oven just at the right moment. The center should be still molten and gooey, though the texture fluffy and airy. When ready, sprinkle them with a dusting of powdered sugar and of course serve them à la minute!

P.S. Despite its reputation, this dessert is actually quick & easy to make! It always works.

A Weekend in Munich

It’s all about beer, pretzels and wursts! We were lucky enough to visit this lovely city over a sunny weekend and get the chance to wander around Marienplatz, this pretty medieval square in the heart of Munich. There are always new things to discover behind the hustle and bustle of the busy roads…!

It’s said that nearly under every City Hall of Germany it’s possible that you’ll find a hot-spot restaurant that serves traditional bavarian food and of course LOTS of beer! In this case we’re talking about “Ratskeller” which, trust me, is a must!

“Fischbrunnen” in Marienplatz

Talking about beer, don’t forget to have a fresh pretzel with a typical cold 1litre beer-mug in the world’s most famous beer hall, “Hofbräuhaus”. Touristy Bavarian experience: loud german live music & plenty of beer!

When the sun goes down, the perfect place for a truly satisfying cocktail experience is at Zephyrs bar in Baader Strasse. If you’re into dancing you should definitely go to the famous P1 Club (late at night). The pizza is amazing, too! 😝🍕

I would also highly recommend a visit to the BMW Museum and BMW Welt –if you’re into cars of course– where you can explore the history of the famed car manufacturer and get a glimpse into its future.
