During the last week of august the weather in Munich was so brilliant, with the the color of light and shadows that are typic for late summer. The life was a slow mixture of swimming, trying recipes, making pictures and playing violin. At the weekly market day in my quarter there was an incredible atmosphere of people coming together and an abundance of the best fruits, vegetables and flowers. And at the river Isar people enjoyed the sun. At home I created a combination of chewy meringue with an ice-cream with an amazing turkish coffee flavor.
