Welcome, we are Team Helsing, or Sandra and Dave! We are two Brits who have lived in the centre of Berlin, Germany for many years. We escape to our small flat in Brandenburg – about 90 km or around an hour’s drive south-east of Berlin – at every opportunity. We became dual-nationals after Brexit and plan to bring touches of all the influences that inspire us to our cooking, teutonic and otherwise.
Both 50-something, with children launching into their adult lives, we are beginning to downsize and do all those things we love to do but that fell by the wayside in the rush of earning a living and looking after a family. So we will be travelling, cooking and exploring our creative inclinations through art, photography and writing.
We are lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of the world that is flat and full of lakes, forests and wildlife. Brandenburg is not a holiday hot-spot and we often have the feeling we have it mostly to ourselves. We aim to share it with you over the next year or so before the serious travelling starts. Watch this space. We hope you enjoy our writing and cooking as much as we do.
