Food should be simple, healthy, light and unpretentious

Nadja Zimmermann spent 13 years as a radio/TV producer, editor and presenter. Today she is the author of the "Unser Menü eins" series, a blogger (incl. for Hello Family), a passionate family woman and creative problem solver.

Why did you start a blog?

Through my cookbooks, which featured different families and their favourite recipes, cooking became an increasingly important part of my professional life. And because I wanted to introduce my own creations to the world, I finally began a blog. At the time, I was supported by an international brand.

What dish or ingredient have you recently rediscovered?

I'm a huge fan of cocoa nibs. I came across them some time ago, but they are still worth their weight in gold in muesli. And I've been making my own granola for a while. It's absolutely delicious!

What inspires you?

My eyes and ears are always open – whether I'm with friends, at my mum's, reading a magazine or surfing the Net. I pick up pictures here and there and they take on a new life in my head.

How do your culinary creations start?

My most exciting creations come from improvising with leftovers. I even surprise myself with the results, which are mostly positive.

What music do you listen to when cooking?

I regularly compile my own playlist. It's called "kitchensound" and is publicly accessibly on Spotify. I'm always listening out for new songs and mixing them in with my all-time favourites. Music is just as important to me as the ingredients when I'm cooking.

What food makes your soul sing?

Chocolate. In any form. I love it with fruit – with candied oranges for example. I also love a table full of exotic delicacies where you can just pick and choose.

I prefer to cook alone. Although this is also due to the fact that we have a tiny kitchen.
