Aloha, pehea ʻoe Honolulu?

Aloha, aloha! Honolulu and Hawaii are next up here on this Friday mouse blog, and of course we made poke, which is said to be the next big food trend (Business insider stated so in February this year).

Buenos Aires

Zürich – Der Alpen Firn sich rötet

We arrived in Zürich when the morning skies grew red, when the Alps glowed bright with splendour. The Swiss cuisine is quite a nostalgic one for those born in the 70’s. Don’t we all remember those cozy Saturday childhood evenings when mom prepared fondue, decades before the Friday mouse was invented? That’s why we decided to make…

We made Naked babies in the…
