About Me

Hallo und herzlich willkommen bei Fallen for Food,

Eigentlich gibt es gar nicht viel über mich zu sagen. Ich heiße Chantal, komme aus dem wunderschönen Österreich und mache alles, was ich esse, am liebsten frisch und selbst. Dabei ist es mir besonders wichtig, dass die Dinge, die ich koche, gesund und frisch sind. Selbst wenn ihr eher vom “Halbfett ist nur der halbe Geschmack”-Ufer kommt, bin ich mir sicher, dass euch meine Rezepte vom Gegenteil überzeugen werden – dafür sorge ich höchstpersönlich :)
Also lasst es euch schmecken und vor allem: Genießt es, denn das ist erlaubt!

Hello and welcome to Fallen for Food,

To be honest, there’s really not much to tell about myself, except that name is Chantal. I’m a quarter French (hence the name) but my French is nowhere near perfect so I think you and I will be better off if I stick to English. As I’ve discovered that most of the time I feel more comfortable writing in English I decided to make this a bilingual blog – so that I can get a change to write everything I can’t express in my mother-tongue German and give people from whichever part of the world a chance to read these lines without having to use a translator (and ending up using the wrong measurements just because Mr. Google told them so). On this blog, I’m going to post all the food I really enjoy eating. Mostly, this will include healthy food as I’m really into that. So even if you’re more the ‘bring it on’-type of cook you’ll maybe start to enjoy my trying-to-cut-it-down-recipes very much as I’ll make sure they blow your mind (and not your waistband).

  1. I don’t speak a word of German, so I’m glad you decided to make the blog bilingual Chantal- it’s gorgeous, and I’m excited to be following it :-)

  2. Hallo Chantal,
    vielen Danke für die Nominierung. : ) Deinen Blog mag ich gerne und die Sacherküchlein vegan stehen auf der To-Do-Liste. Wie kommt’s denn, dass du beschlossen hast in Englisch (international) und in Deutsch zu schreiben? Würde mich über einen Gedankenaustausch freuen, Grüße und schönes WE

    • Hallo :)
      Das freut mich sehr, kann ich nur zurückgeben!
      Die Entscheidung kommt daher, dass ich gerade im Masterstudium English and American Studies bin und eigentlich mehr Englisch als Deutsch schreibe :) meine Muttersprache ist aber Deutsch, ich komme aus Österreich, und das wollte ich auch nicht ganz vernachlässigen :) und deshalb habe ich mir gedacht, ich schließe nichts aus, sondern mache einfach beides – ist zwar mehr Arbeit aber ganz viele freuen sich darüber :)

      Alles Liebe,
      Chantal

      • Huhu, ja wenn man die Kommentare auf deinem Blog liest, dann freuen sich schon einige darüber. Bei der Überlegung, ob ich die Rezepte mehrsprachig anbiete, bin ich recht schnell zur Überzeugung gekommen, dass es im englischsprachigen Raum einfach schon sehr viel gibt? In Deutschland dagegen treffe ich noch recht häufig auf Menschen, die glauben ich esse nur Grünkern-Bratlinge. Wobei ich das im Leben vielleicht maximal zwei Mal gegessen habe. Mal schauen, wenn ich mehr im Bloggen drin bin, dann in Zukunft auch für einen großen Teil der Rest der Welt : ) Jeej.

  3. Hi, thank you for following recipesfromeden.com. I apologize for the two replies I sent to your comment on Bana-nilla Pudding. I was using my phone when I sent the first one and was not sure if it got sent since I was having a connection lag at the time. Anyway, your blog looks interesting! Keep posting :-)

    • Hi there,
      Thanks so much, your blog is great too! :)
      Unfortunately I don’t have a facebook page yet because I’ve only been blogging for some months but maybe sometime soon I will (I’m just not the hugest Facebook fan, that’s the problem ;) )

      Have a great day!

      Best wishes,
      Chantal

        Most of the good pictures are not shot by me, I get a bit of help there but it’s always indicated who’s responsible if they’re not so good ;)

    • Thank you so much, this is very nice of you :)
      Right now, I’m doing a semester abroad in Paris and since the kitchen facilities are not the best, I am afraid the cake recipes have to wait a bit but I promise they’ll come as soon as the new year has arrived ;-)

    I am Dutch speaking, from Flanders, Belgium but I blog in English. It is not my mother tongue either but like to write in English. 😀
    I am off exploring your cool blog now! My German isn’t too bad either.
