Today's Good IdeaTrendy: Luxembourgish organic wines
Wine production in Luxembourg has a long tradition and thanks to its high quality it helped to raise the culinary image of the country. But did you know that Luxembourg has also been producing organic wines since 1995? Have you already tried them? With organic wine more in demand than ever, the number of organic producers and the area of cultivation in Luxembourg have also increased. ‘Herrenberg’, the wine growing area in Wasserbillig, is currently the largest area for organic wines in Luxembourg. This organic innovation is being made to truly historic soil as monks from Trier first used it to produce wine 800 years ago; surely they did this without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. So reintroducing the greenery of local herbs and flowers to the vineyard is literally taking it ”back to its roots“. After all excellent quality soil is needed for an outstanding wine. So what about having a taste of an organic Luxembourgish wine? You can find great selections at the following: Caves Sunnen-Hoffmann Domaine Krier-Welbes Domaine Krier-Bisenius Domaine Mathes Domaines Vinsmoselle Maison Viticole Roeder Carlo Entringer, Projekt « Canecher Wengertsbierg ». Alternatively, why not “rent a vine” in Luxembourg and produce your own personalised bottles? Have a look at this original Good Idea.Read on >
Today's Good IdeaA Food Bar for vegan delights
The moment you enter “Flowers Kitchen” you sense that this is not a classic restaurant. That’s why Maya, the owner, prefers to refer to her ‘Food Bar’: on one hand it has a very trendy urban style and yet its cozy atmosphere makes you feel right at home. Everything on offer in Flowers Kitchen is homemade, including the very tasty bread. The Food Bar works exclusively with vegan products, which does not mean that customers only eat vegan. “I would like to show my guests an alternative to classic food”, explains Maya. “If you acquire a taste for it, all the better but no one will be forced to convert here.” Every day there’s a hot dish on offer, as well as several choices from the permanent menu. You can also enjoy the food and drinks as a take-away. You’ll find more insights into the culinary world of Flowers Kitchen on the Facebook page of the Food Bar.Read on >
Groceries / Delicatessen
“Come à la maison”, eat as if at home.
Experiencing home cooking, that’s what eating at “Come à la maison” feels like. You will discover Italian specialities in a setting that is truly unique in Luxembourg. The restaurant can be found in the building “Am Garage” (opposite the impressive Banque Internationale à Luxembourg (BIL) headquarters), which also houses the furniture shop “Robin du Lac”. After finding your way through the interesting furniture and decorations displayed in the former car show rooms, you will immediately feel at home with Morane Daulard and her family. Rather than a cosy living room, you will be fussed over in the spacious industrial charm that will remind you of a transformed loft. Either eat-in, take-away sandwiches or ready-made dishes, or you could choose from the broad range of meat cuts and cheese at the delicatessen counter. Every Sunday “Come à la maison” offers a brunch (12 to 4 p.m.) and on Tuesday evenings don’t miss “La table de Franco” (reservation required). This set menu dinner starts at 20:00, an ideal venue to finish a busy day with a delicious meal. Gluten-free pasta is currently available and a wider range of allergy free products is expected soon.
