An autumn dessert from Anke and Meike, cooks from Stellshagen manor
While Thanksgiving is being celebrated in other latitudes, where the famous pumpkin pie is a must, pumpkin dishes are also enjoying increasing popularity in this country. And no wonder: The autumn classic pumpkin is full of vitamins, is low in calories and also grows and thrives in the local gardens - for example in the Stellshagen manor on the Baltic Sea.
Here, our own farm, which is part of the Bioland Association, guarantees that the ingredients have short delivery routes to the hotel kitchen. It is also commendable that only vegetarian dishes are served here. The kitchen team shows anew every day how diverse a vegetarian diet can be. Today there is a very special greeting from the kitchen that changes the classic dessert in a delicious way: The autumn pumpkin tiramisu is a successful change from the Italian classic. This is ensured by the sweet pumpkin mixture, which is refined with orange juice.
