A Gourmet's Journey


A Gourmet’s Journey
Salmon in Scotland
fried  or smoked,
herring in Holland
in salt pickles soaked,
Fish’n Chips near Hyde Park
fresh from the stall,
fried plaice in Denmark,
and near a waterfall
small trout in southern France
he approvingly enjoyed.
He didn’t omit this chance.
To know the local dish
each country provides of fish
he also tasted
octopus in a harbour in Greece
somewhat tough and knotty,
rich Bouillabaise in Nice
and cuttlefish on Lanzarote,
Paella with shrimps in Spain,
sardines in Italy,
and on a German train
cod with parsley gravy.
Not to forget in these tales:
crabs and lobsters in Wales.

Book by Irene Beddies:


In Krollebolles Reich: Märchen von Irene Beddies

Irene Beddies hat in diesem Band ihre Märchen für Jugendliche und Erwachsene zusammengestellt.
Vom Drachen Alka lesen wir, von Feen, Prinzen und Prinzessinnen, von kleinen Wesen, aber auch von Dummlingen und ganz gewöhnlichen Menschen, denen ein wunderlicher Umstand zustößt.
In fernen Ländern begegnen dem Leser Paschas und Maharadschas. Ein Rabe wird sogar zum Rockstar.
Auch der Weihnachtsmann darf in dieser Gesellschaft nicht fehlen.

Mit einer Portion Ironie, aber auch mit Mitgefühl für die Unglücklichen, Verzauberten wird erzählt.
