Why Katy's Barking Gecko ?!

I love to travel, I love to cook and to try new recipes...

After returning from yet another trip to South Africa I browsed one of my Food Magazin subscriptions and

we started to envision how it might be to have a small, a very small restaurant. Somewhere in Australia or

South Africa.
Maybe 4 or 5 tables.
To be in the kitchen wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops cooking for fun and nice people....

Doesn't that sound great ?!
We even came up with a name: Katy's Barking Gecko

Well there is no restaurant (so far....), but heaps of favourite recipes.

Weekend Snapshot No. 20

Another wonderful City: Stockholm
Full of friendly. open-minded and relaxed people.
It's wonderfully situated, (nearly) surrounded by water.

There is a lot to do, the famous and very impressive Vasa Museum, grab something to eat at the Stockholm’s indoor market, take a ferry and visit one of the Islands in Stockholm’s archipelago on a beautiful summers day, have a look at the Royal Palace and it's Treasury or the world’s oldest open-air museum Skansen, to name but a few....

But do not miss Gamla Stan, Stockholm's oldest attraction and one of the best preserved medieval city centers in the world, small winding streets, stores filled with handicrafts, antiques, art galleries and cafés.
So a prefect spot to relax after a day full of sightseeing...

My favourite Café is Kaffekoppen right at Stortorget.
I fell in love during one of my first visits to Stockholm (1995) and my favourite back then were, Pancakes served with cloudberries and Ice Cream......
But they are serving savoury snacks as well and not to forget a delicious strong coffee.
