It’s North German in the podcast: Katharina serves Labskaus from “Sommerby,” Kirsten Boye’s children’s book series, set in a fictional setting in Schlei, and in the library, novels are sought (and found) about that play on the North Sea. But she also goes to Berlin (in the challenge bestseller), to Cape Cod (with the novel “Paper Palace”, which the hosts really liked), to the mountains, to Masuria (with a list of All Time Favorites) and to Sweden: author David Lagercrantz online from ARD Studio Stockholm and talks about his exciting new movie.
And to Daniel’s delight, this time there’s a literary dessert: Kalter Hund, a kids’ birthday meal, and also a recipe from Sommerby’s new book that Katharina couldn’t resist. So it was well reinforced for the test – which this time passed with flying colors.
