Welcome to The Food Exchange!

The Food Exchange is a monthly project between me and Greta from Made by Greta. Greta and I met through blogging and soon realised we shared something in common… If you follow my blog you will know that I am English and moved to Germany in 2014, Greta is German and moved to England. Greta messaged me with the idea of swapping traditional English/ German recipes once and month and the idea has grown from there!

Each month we agree on a theme and then send each other a traditional recipe from our home country.

Below you can see a list of what we have already made. By clicking the links you will be sent to the relevant post, if you click on an English bake you will be sent over to Made by Greta.

We hope you enjoy reading about our project! If you have any themes or bakes you would like to see us make, message either of us through our blogs!
