Meager fare for Daniel: This time Jan brought prison food from Fontane’s time – with only a few ingredients that weren’t easy to find. The bestseller challenge, Edgar Selge’s debut novel, is almost too intimate for the hosts. Nevertheless, they agree: a good book! Guest Sönke Wortmann, who has made successful films such as “The Miracle of Bern” and “The Moved Man” as a director, explains why he now also writes novels. In a not unimportant supporting role: a hairdresser from Prague. And in the quiz, Lübeck fan Daniel learns something new about the “Buddenbrooks”.

Rosehip soup recipe
- 500 grams rosehips
- 250 grams sugar
- 1 lemon
- ½ litre White wine
- Two slices french country bread
- One dried rosehip for decoration
Halve the hips with a sharp knife and remove the seeds. Then put it in a saucepan with the sugar and let it stand overnight. The next day, add the wine and half a liter of water and cook until the rose hips are soft. Then pour the contents of the pot through a sieve into a second pot, pressing the flesh of the rose hips through the sieve. The shells can be thrown away. Boil the finished broth again and serve with the country bread.
Well Junkerchen, there you have something warm. The bread was baked by the French, but the rose hips are from Margrave Hansen’s kitchen garden.
