Wundertisch – Old Airport – Nov 13th

wundertisch_nov

After a month getting used to the Ethiopian way of life again, I feel like a corona-proofed Wundertisch! A little private garden-bazar with a well-styled table full of treasures which enriches your home and yourself.

The first Ethiopian Wundertisch is at November 13th from 11 am-1 pm in Old Airport. 

I got so much inspiration of living in this interesting part of the world, so the coming weeks I’m continuing to hunt for the Ethiopian and Kenyan treasures and I would like to share them with you on my Wundertisch event – ‘Wunder-ful Table’ in German.

For this Wundertisch event I transform a blank canvas into a gorgeous tablescape; a well-styled table as a gesture of welcoming and hospitality. Everything on & around the table is for sale … except for me ; )

Most products are African and locally made and/or co-created with me, to stimulate local businesses in these hard Covid-times.

If you are interested to join, please call or message me at +251 93 533 1239 so I can share the location with you. 

Please note, it is on personal invite and RSVP only due to the Covid situation.

If you want to bring a friend, please share their contact details with me and/or let them RSVP via WhatsApp, so we know how many people are coming due to the Corona situation. 

For the ones who don’t know Wundertisch, below a little background and explanation.

Recipes that suit Addis grocery shopping

Veggie Market Addis Ababa

Shopping in Addis is quit a challenge and time consuming. Every week there are new products found and some items just disappear during the day. There are a lot of little market shops on the street for fruits and some basics, but as a western family, we mostly shop in supermarkets where they also sell some ‘western/ international’ products.

To give you a little insight:

Bucket List – Experience it!

My bucket list .. it is a never-ending work in progress, continuously updated and being altered. But having a bucket list, is to have a life and utilize it fully before it’s knocked off from under your feet!

This bucket list will hopefully grow with lots of ‘stil-to-be-discovered-on-this-world’-sights, and please feel free to add yours! I also hope some will disappear from this list and will be added to an blog article where I can tell you how I’ve experienced it.

Im Viadukt in Zürich West it is!

Where can I find the boutique industrial cool area of Zürich?? When visiting a city I’m dying for getting inspired, boutique shopping, studio-gallery strolling, eating delicatesses and getting impressed by people on the street. No bankers, no discerning shoppers, but more the urban-fashion-bohemian-trendy-art-lovers. So where is this area? I know they have it in Zürich; the home to the largest techno street party! But where?

Yes I discovered it! Im Viadukt, Zürich West, Kries 5, it is!

The leaves fall for you

autumn wundertisch 2018

It is officially fall since September 23rd but here in Switzerland it still feels like summer. Calendar-wise you know you should start getting autumn in your house but the bikini-kinda-life removes these thoughts. A little voice in me tells me there is still no need to get into the fairy pumpkin world. So I created my online pumpkin-free-summerish-autumn-wundertisch and for the ones who can’t resist these thoughts… sst…ok, bring on the pumpkins.

3x refreshing cocktails for the summer breeze

I love cocktails, especially in the summer at the end of the day. On holidays around 5 o’clock I take my first one when the sun is losing a bit of its heat, I’ll add the heat with a cocktail.

My favorite & ok-to-make cocktails this summer are:

  1. Good Old Bloody Mary
  2. Gin & Tonic with Grapefruit & Rosemary
  3. Watermelon-Basil Lime Soda Cooler (mocktail)

I have added the recipes below. I have found these on other great websites and gave them a twist to add my flavor to it. Don’t forget: ssst…make the cocktail, pause for a little bit … & drink!
