kunstwerke berlin





kunstwerke (KW) berlin is the institute of contemporary art. remember that we went to take a quick look at its courtyard with the blog campers? the inscription above the portal is by douglas gordon, as far as i know (should i be wrong, let me know) - spooky! and cheeky.

the weekend was happy and full. meeting friends, being creative, so good! the fig jam i made was a tad on the sweet side even though i spiced it up with balsamico, next time i have to use lemon instead, i think - and maybe some spices? or sherry and lemon? the chocolate puddle cookies were yummy, but it is indeed difficult to get the baking right: they were either too chewy/sticky or too crisp. any fail-safe chocolate recipes you would recommend?

anyway, have a good week and say hello if you like, i always love to hear from you!

hello kristina!
i make my fig jam with lemon juice (but that's more for the pectine i think) and vanilla. it's sweet but oooh so good. i'm going to make the second batch of the year this weekend.
and my favourite chocolate recipe, although they're not cookies, are alice medrich's new bittersweet brownies. they're not too heavy but not dry at all. mmmmmmmmh.

I've never made nor tasted fig jam. I've no idea why because I'm sure it tastes lovely.

Ps: What a great little 'fun fact' about you and Århus and the sculpture guide. I like that ;-)

I always associate the KW with cold and snow. Last time I went I was just dead because of the temperatures...
Nice to see that place warmer on pictures !

well, my hopefully soon-to-be favourite recipe is this one from Nigel Slater how good does a CHOCOLATE CHIP HAZELNUT CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE CINNAMON BUTTER CREAM sound? pretty good, huh? i want it for my birthday cake.
