From Cologne to Milan

I went to Cologne on Friday where I had the possibility to see the archaeological excavation around the famous cathedral. It was amazing to see the work of the archaeologists live. They were digging in 2000 years of history. I saw excavations of ancient Roman vaults from the 2nd century CE, ruins of Jewish houses from the 11th/12th century and the oldest inscription North of the Alps in Hebrew language from the 12th/13th (?) century. The areal around the cathedral was first the Roman settlement, later the Jewish quarter for ages. It was amazing to be part of it and it was a strange feeling to watch into a Roman fountain or a medieval Jewish sewer. In that sewers the archaeologists found 800 years old slates with texts written in Hebrew, Yiddish and German in Latin letters. Because of a ban of photography I can not post any pictures here, but I'd like to show you some pictures which I think about they are legendary.

I wrote from Cologne to Milan, so back to my kitchen blog: My granny asked me to bake again the Milan cake I made one week ago. I doubled the ingredients and made it in a larger baking pan. It took me exactly 15 min. to prepare it. It's really a fast cake.
