The great culinary review 2013 at moey's kitchen foodblog!

All good things come in threes, right?
That's why another year review follows!
We've checked the books, now comes a last (!), general review of the Year 2013.
After that we are through with all the looks back and look forward - promised!

January 2013

In January 2013, it also started with the review - I introduced and reviewed 40 books in My Great Cookbook Annual Review 2012 - look inside, there are still lots of tips and great books.

One of my recipe highlights in January is clearly the Juicy Chocolate Maroon Cake after Sir Paul McCartney - look at this recipe again! The cake is wonderfully tart and juicy and does not contain any flour.

Salad from Brussels sprouts with apple slices, chopped walnuts and pecorino shavings

My absolute highlight and a great new discovery was the Brussels sprouts salad with apple, walnuts and pecorino - one of my absolute favorite salads to date!

February 2013

In February 2013, my absolute highlight was the vanilla cheesecake with apple sprinkles - I've baked it several times to this day and always find it awesome!

In addition, I was at the end of February on several e vents: Together with Steph from the curio shop, I was in Paris for a day on February 23, 2013 to attend the Paris Cook Book Fair. After all, both the fair and the city were a disappointment, but we ate nice and chatted and had a nice day. In March I also wrote about this day in detail: Festival du livre culinaire - Paris Cookbook Fair 2013 .

Only one day later, on February 24, 2013, I was closed a Meet and Greet and Eat at the Hotel Nikko in Dusseldorf . Together with a few other food bloggers I got a hotel tour, a marzipan workshop and above all a lot of very good Japanese food. The highlight was certainly all the delicacies from the Teppan Yaki. What a great day!

And another event took place during the same period: The book presentation by Björn Freitag's My WDR Cookbook *  by Zabert Sandmann Verlag in Cologne.
As the only blogger among journalists I was invited to the presentation and tasting in a cooking school in Cologne. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, I have never been able to report in detail, but would like to submit some more pictures.
The book is really beautiful - the external impression might seem a bit special, but it is about wonderful seasonal and regional dishes with the certain Something!New header, new logo and new layout - tidy and simple, just as I wished!

 Lemon Square Bars on a Plate

My culinary highlight this month was the Lemon Square Bars - delicious, juicy, fresh! And since a scaffolding was standing in front of my photo window this month, I photographed for the first time in another room. And the photos have something, I think.

Another highlight was the Orecchiette with chard and white beans - these too Photos are one of my personal highlights. They also originated in front of another window.

April 2013

In April 2013, my monthly highlight was clearly my Culinary Travelogue London . Professionally, I was back in London for a couple of days and spent a few more hours feasting on Ottolenghi and Whole Foods and Waterstone's covered with cookbooks. Also, I checked out all the wonderful and well-known bakeries and brought home little things from the Primrose Bakery , and the Hummingbird Bakery and I strolled on the Covent Garden Market . What a culinary dream day! If you are going to London this year and still looking for tips and suggestions, be sure to read my report!
On April 23, 2013 was also World Book Day and then the action give bloggers read joy , where I participated with a cookbook. I'll be there again this year.
