Luisa Weiss’s Roasted Fennel and Tomatoes, Gratineed Peppers, and Tuna Salad
One of my oldest food blogging friends is Luisa Weiss of The Wednesday Chef, who went on to write the books My Berlin Kitchen and Classic German Baking, and is currently working on Classic German Cooking as well as her new Substack newsletter, A Letter from Berlin. In today's session, we talk all about the link between Luisa's food writing and her emotions (something she's always excelled at), how homesickness led her into the kitchen, the specific West Berlin community where she grew up, and how she sought it out again later in life. We also cover people's perception of German food, what she loves about it, her other culinary identities (American, Italian), taking on the mantle of her cookbooks, and which foods she misses the most from the U.S.
