Katharina Birkenbach’s newsletter Good Food. For Everybody. is a bi-weekly resource for good, simple, and affordable food. Today’s recommended reading

Do you remember Katharina Birkenbach? The woman who made a remarkable break in her professional life to devote herself fully and completely to independent research into the topic of which (positive) effects good food can have on our health? (You’ll find the article here.) Luckily, she’s now sharing her knowledge with the world through her recently started bi-weekly newsletter. She quickly explains what it’s all about here:

Good Food. For Everybody. (or Gutes Essen. Für Alle.) is a newsletter that comes out every other Thursday in German and English. It’s centered on good, simple, and affordable food. It’s only indirectly about health – the basic assumption is that when people cook at home with more fresh ingredients, then a lot is already being done in that direction. The newsletter always features three recipes on one theme or ingredient, sometimes with meat – mostly without – and always with a lot of vegetables. Additionally, I also introduce an ingredient that actually belongs in every cupboard. Here, I try to always have something that you can easily make yourself and explain how you do it. The last two examples were, for example, ghee and sauerkraut. The goal is get people to simply try out something new, because it’s often far easier than you think. I also introduce a kitchen utensil that’s affordable and can be used for many things. And there’s also additional categories, like super simple recipes that can be replicated really quickly in the evening or introductions to food producers – something that at the moment is underrepresented, but will finally occupy more space in the coming newsletters.


So, let’s go! You can subscribe to the newsletter here. For updates via Instagram and Facebook, follow the links here and here.
