The first thing is what you see to the left – we finally got around to getting a guestbook! The grand plan is not only to get all our guests to leave a little message for us, but also to persuade them to share their favourite recipe.

That way, we’re hoping to collect delicious recipes from all around the world (provided that people can still remember a recipe after all that food and wine…!) and then we will share them with YOU here on the blog!

Sounds good, right? Yes, we thought so too. We’re just about to launch our new idea on this coming weekend’s unsuspecting guests, so hopefully we’ll be back next Monday with some culinary treats from you.

That means, if you’ve booked to come and visit us, prepare yourself to share your favourite foods with the world!

Our second idea is to start a recipe swap with other foodie blogs – we’re always on the lookout for new things to cook for our guests, and we’d love to share some of the treats we’ve served so far. So if you have a foodie blog, or you know someone who might be interested in participating, get in touch! Who knows, your dish might even end up on The Shy Chef menu…

The third thing is that we’re now on Twitter! Follow us here for last minute bookings and new foodie discoveries in Berlin and around the world.

We’ve still got some places for the coming weekend, so let us know if you would like to join us!
