The German foodblog Krautkopf by Susann and Yannic
But then a food blog is not only about pictures – the recipes have to convince me as well. They have to suprise me, trigger feelings,…
But they also offer reinterpretations of classic recipes like the traditional sunken apple cake that I – and probably a lot of Germans – have so many memories with.
That the completely vegetarian cooking is closely linked to the seasons is not least proved by categorizing recipes by season. But let’s not forget the “basics” section – a elected choice of their favourite vegetarian staples like cashewnut cream or vegetable stock.
Here are Susanns and Yannics thoughts about food and their blog:
Besides our love for photography, cooking and eating is the second thing we are really passionate about. To bring both together can’t be topped and makes us simply happy.
We have long watched out for a possibility to share our photos and recipes with others. A food blog was the logical consequence.
What we learned to love most about our blog is the control over what we’re eating. We regularly share our everyday meals on Instagram. This way, we have an overall view on our nutrition and we always find inspiration in our own dishes. Cause we’re rarely following recipes when we’re cooking, we often forget about how we had prepared something. A little cooking journal can jog your memory in such cases.
But what probably motivates every blogger is the great feedback of our readers. It piques
us to try out new things again and again.
What is your favourite recipe that you’ve posted?
This question is really hard to answer. Cause we’re cooking seasonal, every season has its own favourite recipe. An amazing dish that we indeed prepare all year round are our mung beans pancakes.
What are the main influences of your cooking?
Basically we’re really cooking with influences from all around the world. We can’t name something specific. Besides cooking we love to go out for dinner and try new meals there, of which we carry a lot of impressions and influences with us back home.
What does cooking mean for you?
For us it is important what we eat and what is contained in our food. How can you realize this better than by cooking fresh every day? After a hard day of work it is also often very relaxing to stand at the stove in the evening and rest your mind. Of course it is most rewarding to cook for other people and to savour together. Eating and cooking unites.
You are working as professional photographers. How important is the photography of your food for you?
For our blog photographs are super important and also the feature that distinguishes us most. Despite Instagram and other social media in which one shares his food, it is important to us that it tastes good and this includes that it comes hot into the belly. So, if we do not have the camera at hand, then the food is not photographed no matter how delicious it looks.
