Eat good, feel good…


Hi! I’m Ester, dubbed Pewa by my siblings,  short for Ndapewoshali my 2nd name. Thank you for stopping by! I was born and bred in Namibia, but now residing in Germany with my husband and our daughters.

I am a geologist by profession, but cooking has always been my first love. Hence the reason for this blog; to share my passion for bringing  recipes from around the globe to life and culinary travel.

Here you’ll find easy to follow and no – fail family recipes, travel inspired recipes and recipes from friends.

Expect to come across my experiences on traveling and DIY.

Please join me for some mouthwatering moments.

Guten Appetit,



  • In 2018 I took part in the German version of come dine with me ,,das Perfekte Dinner” and in 2019 in the parenting tv show entitled ,,Mein Kind Dein Kind”.
  • I represented my country, Namibia at 2 international beauty contests: Miss Supranational and Miss Princess of the World .
  • On my free time I sing in a choir, give cooking classes at local adult education center, do zumba or go for a run. I also took part in couple of half marathons.

  • I evaluate my spending, no I am not stingy, I simply believe in financial accountability. I won’t leave the grocery store unless my invoice is correct. In addition, my husband and I, assess our invoices for the month to see how we are handling our resources. Some of my siblings have now adopted this method. You know how the verse goes ” Iron sharpens iron “.
  • I only go out to eat when the food is really good.
  • Yes I am a foodie, so much so that I travel for food.
  • I enjoy cooking for my family, friends and neighbors.
  • Although I am a geologist by profession, I enjoy cooking more.

And by the wayEster kocht, simply means Ester cooks, in German.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

Hi Ester, came looking for the Nusszkopf and stayed for other treats! Hey, what is the dish you’re pictured making at the bottom of your bio? Tomatoey sauce that you’re breaking eggs into? Just wondering… Thanks for the recipes. Blair
