The Seasoned Traveler

Recipes and remedies using herbs, spices, and other natural ingredients from the world's pantry

Fall in Berlin


I’ve had quite a week of catching up with friends and making some life-altering decisions — more on this later — along with some cooking and leaf-peeping. While I don’t have any new Seasoned Traveler recipes to share today, I highly recommend this Purple Plum Torte (let it rest overnight – you’ll love how the jammy plums get sweeter!) from Smitten Kitchen and this Ginger Apple Torte from Food52 (if, like me, you don’t have molasses on hand, cooked diced dates or simply an additional dose of brown sugar will make great substitutes).

This fall season in Berlin was just too beautiful to miss a day out in nature, so I spent today in Berlin’s Grunewald, or literally the “green forest” that happens to extend from our very backyard. Here I’m sharing a different kind of recipe — equal parts fresh air, scenic beauty, and a gorgeous spectrum of fall colors. Enjoy the season wherever you are!

Just look at this carpet of red leaves I stumbled upon…

And this hunting lodge, in the middle of the forest…

And back to leaf-gazing…

Happy fall, everyone! Stay tuned for more Seasoned Traveler recipes to come soon…

  4. I can see why you love fall in Berlin. It’s Grunewald looks like a lovely and serene place. Thanks for sharing.
