Ok, Let’s stop for a second and talk about dressing up.
The winter in Berlin can be very cold and super dry.
Now I would like to share with you my 3 guidelines on how not to freeze in Berlin.
For temperature ranging between 15 and 10 Celsius
I am usually wearing a long shirt and light jacket.
Long underwear and long pants.
And closed shoes.
My 2nd guideline is for temperatures ranging between 10 and 0 Celsius.
In that case I will wear a scarf
Long shirt and pullover under a medium jacket.
One or two long underwear under lose long pants (not skinny)
On my feet I put on my winter shoes that are also waterproof (very important)
And will use my super thick socks, so make sure your winter shoes are a bit larger than your casual summer shoes.
The last guideline will be for the coldest days in Berlin, ranging from 0 to minus 10 degrees Celsius.
A good warm Beanie and a thick scarf is a must!
A fun tip about scarfs: most men fashion stores will sell only small, thin, scarfs. that may look elegant but does not do the job, so I will recommend you looking for a scarf in the women fashion.
I will also wear long shirt, pullover and a sweater.
All that I am wrapping with an extra warm, heavy jacket.
Don’t think about fashion when buying a heavy jacket, there will not be good ones that also look good, so just buy the warmer one you can find.
For that temperature I will also wear thick gloves.
Keeping your bottom part of the body warm is critical for maintaining a warm body temperature,
Therefore I will wear 2 long underwear, and training pants on top of it.
All this under an oversized pants.
And of course, the winter shoes and 2 pairs of warm socks.
And now for the fun part!
Let’s make caramel by warming sugar in a small cooking pot,
To it we will add heavy cream, move it around and stir it until all the caramel dissolves.
Put some more heavy cream, and my super-secret spice mixture:
Black pepper, cinnamon, chili powder, anis star and Chinese 5 spices mixture.
Mix very well and bring to a boil.
At that point we will turn off the heat and add very dark chocolate.
Whisk it thoroughly until it’s all mixed together with the cream and hot spices.
Add a touch of cream if it’s too thick.
Poor it to a glass through a fine sieve to separate the spices. And give a few drops to your table too.
