Brunch Exchange Berlin_2014_invite

Dinner Exchange Berlin lädt am 12. Januar, 12 Uhr mittags, zu einem weiteren gesunden Sonntagsbrunch im Berliner Effizienzhaus ein.

Deutschlands Effizienz von seiner besten Seite!

Die Idee hinter diesem innovativen Regierungsprojekt ist, die vom Haus generierte Energie in Hochleistungsbatterien zu speichern und u.a. für das Aufladen elektrischer Fahrzeuge zu benutzen.

Wir freuen uns, ein Menü aus frischem Bio-Obst und Gemüse, gespendet von Händlern des Markts am Rathaus Schöneberg und des Winterfeldtmarkts, an diesem progressiven Ort anzubieten.

Anmeldung ueber dinnerexchangeberlin@gmail.com.

(Kostenbeitrag inkl. Führung durch das Effizienzhaus: € 10,-)

Bis dahin  verbleiben wir mit sylvestrischen Grüßen!

Dinner Exchange Berlin invites you to another healthy Sunday brunch at Berlin’s Energy House Plus (Effizienzhaus) on Jan 12th, 12 midday.

German efficiency at its best!

The idea behind this new government venture is that the energy generated by the house is stored in suitable high-capacity batteries and used to, for example, recharge electric vehicles.

We look forward to serving a menu made from donated organic produce from the Rathaus Schoenberg and the Winterfeldt market at this progressive venue.

 Reservations via dinnerexchangeberlin@gmail.com.

(Contribution incl. a tour of the Energy House: € 10,-)

Until then: sylvestric greetings!

More than two dozen other volunteers were mixing, rolling, filling, pinching and boiling the dumplings recently in the school cafeteria and kitchen at St. Constantine Ukrainian Catholic Church in northeast Minneapolis.

“Cost effective, easy to make, fills the tummy, all those good things,” says Nadia Doroschak.

The dumplings look like ravioli, a two and half inch circle of dough that Maria Iwonoch folds over the filling. “Potatoes, cheese, onions, butter together,” she says.

Pierogi or pyrohy production begins early every Friday morning at the church. It’s been that way for nearly 40 years now. Dough maker Larry Bell pours ingredients into the bowl of a huge commercial kitchen-sized electric mixer.

“The trick is to add just enough flour that you get good dough and not too much…”
