This veal roulade is a very untypical recipe for my blog as it hat nothing much to do with Mediterranean food. Still I need to post some Austrian or German food as well. It was a cooking evening with Ralf and at least we tasted some Greek wine while cooking and later on with the [...]

Sep 29th, 2010 | By | Category: Fish, Recipes

A nice combination is always a piece of fish with a lemon risotto. The fish as such dies not need any additional lemon as the risotto has enough acidity.
