Hi everyone, we are Laura Muthesius & Nora Eisermann, born and based in Berlin.
Nora, who studied fashion design, is working as a (food-)stylist and Laura, who studied photography, is working as a photographer. We decided to write this blog while Laura was feeling unwell due to food-allergies. We started to cook every day together and were looking for new recipes quite often but were never really satisfied with what we found. Our aim was to create delicious gluten free cake recipes that taste as good as a normal cake. At that time it was nearly impossible to find a piece of gluten free cake in a coffee shop in berlin and the rare gluten free sweets in an organic shop didn’t really tasted good. So we started to create our own recipes and it worked out so well that we wanted to share them. When we started blogging we also shared a lot of recipes that are low on histamine but as Laura’s histamine-intolerance got so much better (after avoiding to eat food that is not low on histamin for almost 4 years) this isn’t our priority anymore. All our recipes are still gluten free and vegetarian, some are vegan, some refined sugar free and of course you can also find recipes that are low on histamine from time to time.
Our studio was loctated in the countryside for a very long period – now we have our studio in Berlin but are still spending almost half of our time in the countryside. This year we renovated a little flat in the countryside, as we had to move out from our previous place – see the post about our new kitchen in the countryside here.
Nature is what inspires us most – apple and pear trees, berries, cherries, walnuts, elderberries, fresh herbs and many more things are growing in our garden. Almost all the food, that we use for our recipes and in our daily life is from an organic shop, from our garden or from the local farmers market.
As we love to share our food with other people, family and friends we started the series Dinner Stories. The tought behind this series is to show people (who are not used to eat gluten free) how easy and delicious it is, to prepare gluten free meals and that you don’t have to eat alone, if you have to follow a certain diet. And of course, it’s also nice to have a glimpse in other kitchens, right?!
We hope you enjoy Our Food Stories and thank you so much for stopping by!
