Food Blogger trickytine

Whether she's in her own studio "Urbina", in her kitchen at home, at the weekly market or out and about in the east of Stuttgart, culinary matters are always close to Christine Garcia Urbina's heart – and so is the Stuttgart Region!

She's a real "Stuttgarter Mädel" – a Stuttgart girl, born and raised here, and always pleased to be home despite her frequent travels. As the food blogger trickytine she provides her fans with delicious recipes and great stories: from the introduction to her favourite dish, "Linsen und Spätzle" (lentils with noodles), to her declaration of love for Stuttgart.

Trickytine grew up with a passion for delicious food: her mother's cooking tips influence her work (“When the potato salad's glossy and slurpy, it's just right."), just as much as current trends and new discoveries. For her, cooking has to do with emotions and traditions – as well as with progression and innovation!

To visitors to the Stuttgart Region she recommends a colourful potpourri: in particular a hike through the vineyards followed by a visit to a traditional "Besenwirtschaft" (wine grower's broom tavern), the wonderful scenic lookout points and charming festivals. The "Bean Quarter Festival" with its narrow lanes and little workshops is her personal favourite. And of course: the many culinary delights on offer...

Typical for the Stuttgart Region: "The down-to-earth mentality, the diversity, and the predominant and tangible pioneering spirit that somehow manages to reconcile preserving and cherishing existing traditions with a willingness to reassess and update them."

Favourite Lookout: Eugensplatz


We'll let trickytine speak for herself: "I love to look down from Eugensplatz over the city that's dearest to my heart. There's not only the fantastic view, but also a couple of scoops of delectable ice cream from the Pinguin ice cream parlour and the splashing of the water in Stuttgart's probably most splendid fountain, the Galatea Fountain."

Bohnenviertel Stuttgart

Favourite Part of Town: Bohnenviertel (Bean Quarter)


Antique shops and wine bars, little studios and charming cafés: the Bean Quarter is trickytine's particular favourite. The historical part of the city with its narrow lanes has a character all of its own, while its many rear courtyards also provide inspiration for photos. This is where Stuttgart's poorest inhabitants once lived. And their staple food? Beans, of course!
