Hallo, I’m Sophie!

Let’s cook and bake ourselves closer to Germany TOGETHER! I am so glücklich that you visited me at my German food and recipe blog dirndl kitchen!

When I first moved to the United States in 2009, I started to terribly miss the German way of eating! I still miss a nice weekend brunch with crusty Brötchen and pastries, Döner Kebab and German cake and coffee time at 3 p.m.! So I decided to educate my fellow American friends by writing about German customs and food in an approachable way with easy-to-follow recipes! I hope you stay a while and decide to cook and bake with me!

Mit viel Liebe
