Germany - Recipe/Food

February 16, 2016

Gabriela sent this card to me from Germany.  The front has a recipe on it, but it is in German.  Gabriela was nice enough to translate it for me.

She writes, "Hello, many greetings from Germany.  You like cards related to food, this is why I send you this recipe card.
'Cut 1 onion, 2 celery sticks, 1 carrot and 1 clove of garlic, saute in olive oil.  Add 850 g of canned tomatoes and 250 mL bouillon.  Simmer for 20 minutes.  Puree the soup with a blender and pour it through a sieve.  Heat again, add 25 g butter + 200 mL of cream, flavor with salt, sugar and a lot of nutmeg. Serve with basil.'

I don't know if you can buy all these ingredients in Japan but I hope you like the card itself.  All the best for you, Gabriela"

I tidied up the recipe's English a little for clarity, but it sounds like it would be a good recipe.  Alas, although we CAN buy all the ingredients here, I cannot eat tomato soup, so I can't make this.

I think this is a double stamp as both sides have an amount listed and it is very long!  The picture is quite beautiful too.

The stamps are gorgeous.

I agree! It's lovely to see it all in one like this!
