Today's Good IdeaReady for a butter-soft blueberry-dream?
"Chocolate Explosion", "Tiramisu", "Carrot" ... Kathy has a longtime passion with cupcakes. Until now, native Australian Kathy mostly enjoyed baking her delicious little cakes for friends from her home, and now since this summer, the masses can tuck into her treats too. Situated near Luxembourg’s train station district, "Kathy's Deli & Cupcakery" serves freshly prepared cupcakes: all swirled with butter cream, topped with homemade decor on the night before … to maintain good taste! We tried the blueberry cupcake. A dream of blueberry; and as Kathy already confirmed, it’s a crowd favorite. Each week there is a special cupcake of the week, so go on, indulge yourself. “Break your fast” at "Kathy's Deli & Cupcakery" with an (American) breakfast, a real alternative to the hotel breakfast and “standing-cafés”. Come lunchtime, select from a variety of sandwiches, bagels, soups and salads (to-go or eat-in). How about sealing your meal with a dessert or a "Chocolate Explosion"?!Read on >
Today's Good IdeaThe season has arrived … for Luxembourg wines!
As we bid farewell to summer, and the days start to get shorter, it’s time for the wine harvesting to begin. Each year, grapes are harvested for premium wines from vineyards along Luxembourg’s Moselle between Schengen and Wasserbillig. The selection is wide and exceptional: Sparkling Crémant, elegant Rieslings, flowery White and Pinot Gris, exotic Gewurztraminer, fragrant Rivaner and powerful Pinot Noir, the regional specialties Elfling and Auxerrois, as well as the ice and straw wines, which are particularly suited for dessert. Experience this rich blend of flavorsome sensations only over Luxembourg’s uniquely compact surface area. Three groups of producers determine the Luxembourg wine-production; "Les Domaines de Vinsmoselle", a group of six wine cooperatives connected with 450 grape suppliers, a group of independent wineries, which includes 52 establishments, in addition to the wineries and trading houses, which joined forces in 1928, producing sparkling wines since the 1920s. Inclined to (re) explore Luxembourg’s wine countryside? Then browse through our small selection of "wine" Good Ideas. Find useful information about Luxembourgish wine by checking out www.region-moselle.lu and www.vins-cremants.lu!Read on >
Straight to the source: an organic market on the farm
Shopping on a farm is nothing new in principle, and has pre-existed and been appreciated for many years, especially by those who are conscious about what they serve on their tables. A farm shop concept viewed through an entirely new point-of-view, has now opened in Windhof. Farmer Guy Meyers has built a structure of at least 400 m² of retail space on his biodynamic farm, where consumers can purchase organic produce and dairy from Meyer’s farm, as well as other organic foods and organic cosmetics from Naturata thanks to a cooperation agreement. The "Naturata Bio Haff-Buttek Meyers Lagoon" is also host to baking bar and bistro area. A terrace with a children's playground is currently being completed. The highlight is the so-called "window to agriculture". The two large double windows were appropriately installed right next to the refrigerated display for dairy products. This way, shoppers are in contact with the "producers", in spite of the size of the farm shop guarantees: What’s more: Around 30 suckler cows and several calves reside in the so-called cattle enclosure (depending on the season).
