Around the world with the hottest food and travel profiles.



1. Who are you?

I am a pastry chef and baker. I have been living in the nice city of Hamburg for about two years now. Before I moved to Hamburg, I worked for six years on different German cruise liners as a pastry chef. During those years, I was able to see and taste a lot of the world cuisine, but now I am happy to have some time for my blog.

2. What is your site about?

The name of my blog Reisegabel means travel fork in English. I blog about Food and Travel. I like to present some nice recipes as well as reviews of restaurants and introduce new products. I combine this with reports from my trips, vacations, concerts or fairs. Because I love to take pictures, there are a lot of them on my blog. You can also find me on Instagram, Twitter, FacebookPinterest and YouTube.

3. What is one food tip you would give about Hamburg?

In Hamburg you can find so many nice places to eat. Around nearly every corner there is some nice restaurant. You can also find so many different cuisines here: Portuguese, Italian, Greek, American, French, Indian, and many more. You can find whatever you like and what fits to your personal budget. I like the US Burger Restaurant near my apartment.

4. What is one travel tip you would give about Hamburg?

In Hamburg there are many nice things to do. You can visit a lot of musicals, the harbour area, as well as the old “Speicherstadt“, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. I also recommend the Miniatur Wunderland, the largest model railway in the world. Maybe it sounds a bit nerdy, but even if you are not a big railway fan, it is very impressive. All the details and moving parts are incredible. My personal highlight is the airport with starting and landing airplanes, all via remote control.

5. What is the best thing to eat in Hamburg?

Of course, you can eat some nice fish in Hamburg or labskaus, but as I have more of a sweet tooth, I would recommend a Franzbrötchen. It is a small, sweet pastry, baked with butter and cinnamon, a bit like a Danish pastry. You can find many different sweet and savory versions of these viennoiseries in Hamburg.
