There are just days when I do not really feel like being in the kitchen forever. Either I really have to get up to study or I want to sit outside in the sun and read a book. Or I'm out all day. Sometimes it just has to go fast and I still want to eat something warm. Since I'm not a big pasta fan, noodles usually fall away and I tend to grab something like the quick tomato quiche. Today on offer: quick leek cake! Admittedly a recipe hardly worthy, but with very few and simple ingredients extremely fast on the table and also very delicious. I also think it's great for parties or barbecues. Roll out 1 rectangular puff pastry from the cooling rack on a baking sheet, preheat the oven to 175 ° C top and bottom heat or 150 ° C convection. Brush 1 kg thin leek sticks, remove the outer shell and cut only the white and light green slices of the leek into about 0.5 cm thick slices. Cook the leek slices in boiling salted water for about 3 minutes, then drain. 150 g diced bacon or ham cubes (I have used lean ham cubes) in the still hot Lauchtopf sweat. Add 150 g crème fraîche and stir with salt ...

When I was in London for business last week, a typical British Tea Time was not missing. And so I sat on a sunny Sunday with two colleagues in the beautiful garden of a great hotel in Kensington and enjoyed the 5 o'clock tea time with freshly baked, fragrant scones, clotted cream, strawberry jam and a pot of tea.
