Christmas market Aachen — Part 2

The most beautiful Christmas market in Germany and the 2nd best in Europe 🙂 

http://www.europeanbestdestinations.com/christmas-markets/

Every year before Christmas the squares and streets round the Cathedral and the Aachen Town Hall are transformed into a paradise of lights and colours, festive sounds and seductive smells. The glorious fair in the Christmas City, which has been erected with great care and sentiment, fascinates both the young and the old. The enormous choice between original, stylish and precious goods makes small and big dreams come true.”

Feuerzangenbowle 

Wikipedia: a traditional German alcoholic drink for which a rum-soaked sugarloaf is set on fire and drips into mulled wine. It is often part of a Christmas tradition. The name translates literally to fire-tongs punch.

Delicious breakfast with German bread

Breakfast helps us start our day nicely 🙂 here is one of my breakfast this week with multi-grain German bread:

Breakfast

I fried the egg with coconut oil, which was my first try to use coconut oil for cooking. It was amazing! And I used caviar cream (the white cream on the bread) instead of butter, yummy! ❤

I have tried two different ways for the decoration as well as the photo composition.  It took really much time to get a good idea and to find the best angle, but I had a lot of fun. 🙂

Paris — Marche Bastille

Bastille Market (Marche Bastille) is the biggest Sunday market in Paris for frish and special ingredients.  It is specially attractive for me because I love cooking and I am always interested to visit the local markets on my trips. Take Metro 1,5 or 8 to the station ”Bastille” and the market is only 50m from the Metro station. 

I am always very exciting when I see frish ingredients with top quality. The market didn’t fail me. All the sellers were so nice and friendly even we spoke no French and they no English. The highlight: I ate fresh oysters  ❤ . Last time I ate oysters was almost 4 years ago, I still remember how expensive they were. But here on the market they were really cheap, 9 oysters for 11 €. The seller was a very beautiful girl and she opened them immediately for us and served them on sea grass, interesting 🙂 . Mmmmm… yummy yummy!
