Soul Food Sessions and Coca-Cola in Baltimore

I want to share an exciting event coming to Baltimore and yes it involves food!

Soul Food Sessions  (SFS) has partnered with Coca Cola Consolidated  for “The Table is Set: A Four-City Tour Served With A Coke,” to spread that mission to Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Charleston.

The third stop of the tour will take place in Baltimore, Maryland on July 29.  To celebrate, I have partnered with SFS to cook up Charred Corn Crab Cakes with Watermelon Rind Slaw paired with a Coca-Cola Life.   This is such an interesting twist on a crab cake.  Baltimoreans are certainly traditionalist when it comes to our crab cakes.  But if you are up for something new, why not try out this recipe.  The crab cake is paired with a Coca-Cola Life and a watermelon slaw  to bring out the complex texture and flavors, yet lightness, of crab cakes.

This dish will be available at the event on July 29 at American Brewery in Baltimore.  I hope to see you there!  Your seat is waiting.

Touring a German Castle

I’ve always heard you never travel to Germany for the food, but the sites are extraordinary.  And this was the absolute truth!  I wasn’t a fan of the pretzels and hot cheesecake but I did see some wonderful architecture like the Nymphenburg Palace, i. e., “Castle of the Nymph, is a Baroque palace in Munich, Bavaria, southern Germany. The palace was the main summer residence of the former rulers of Bavaria of the House of Wittelsbach.

 

The palace was commissioned by the prince-electoral couple Ferdinand Maria and Henriette Adelaide of Savoy to the designs of the Italian architect Agostino Barelli in 1664 after the birth of their son Maximilian II Emanuel. The central pavilion was completed in 1675. As a building material, it utilised limestone from Kelheim. The castle was gradually expanded and transformed over the years.

The palace, together with its park, is now one of the most famous sights of Munich.  Some rooms still show their original baroque decoration while others were later redesigned in rococo or neoclassical style.  But I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves!
