Hello there and welcome to The German Foodie!
My name is Jessica and I am the creator and face behind The German Foodie. Ever since I switched to a mostly vegetarian diet at the age of 12, my favorite place to be has been the kitchen. As the name suggests, I am German and I have a deep passion for food. I was born and raised in Bavaria – the southern part of Germany and the state of beer, pretzels and sauerkraut.
You can usually find me in the kitchen, trying new recipes and trying to find plant-based and healthier alternatives to my favorite dishes. Although I do sometimes indulge in a bit of fish or seafood, I have not eaten meat for over 12 years and I do not miss it one bit. For me the fun is in finding new cooking methods and ingredients to recreate childhood favorites or dishes from foreign cuisines.
While I try to eat healthy 80% of the time I also have a major sweet tooth. Chocolate, pastries and ice cream are my kryptonite. Expect a lot of taste, spice, tang and zest in my recipes.
