Dinner with culinary tour through Germany
- Try fresh, seasonal and organic German cuisine with a local chef
- Discover a unique dish from each of Germany's 16 states
ABOUT THE CHEF: Kit has been growing, harvesting and cooking fresh, organic foods since she was a child. She was raised in the countryside near her father's trout farm, where she learned to clean and scale fish at age 8. In the summer and fall, there were grandma's vegetables and fruits, eaten fresh, and preserved and savored in winter. Throughout her life Kit has been gathering friends and family around the table for delicious meals and good conversation.
WHAT YOU'LL DO: Germany has 16 states and in each of them one can find a unique dish or variations on common dishes. The influences of the neighboring countries are most visible in Germany's regional cuisine. Whereas the southwest of Germany is influenced by French cooking, the Rhine River region by foods in Belgium and the Netherlands. Bavaria being close to Austria and loves all the Knödel and sausages and Schnitzel. Spätzle, Sauerkraut and Maultaschen are among the favorites in many southern states. The northwest of Germany proudly presents a variety of seafood dishes. And naturally, dishes from the eastern regions are infused by eastern flavors and other cultures due to the different political situation affecting agricultural diversity during the socialist era.
Courses are served partly on individual plates and on platters in family style. The dinner is accompanied with wine and beer pairings, presented by experts and producers. Kit is a great and experienced cook, but also has a talent for beautiful presentations and storytelling.
LOCATION: Schöneberg, centrally located in former West, is Berlin’s most colorful and multicultural district. Many film stars, authors, poets, and scientists have felt at home here – David Bowie and Iggy Pop, Albert Einstein, Hans Fallada, Klaus Kinski, Hildegard Knef, Else Lasker-Schüler, Rudolf Steiner, and Billy Wilder– to name a few. When John F. Kennedy visited Berlin in 1961, he made his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech at the Schöneberg Town Hall. Since the 1920s, Berliners have come to Schöneberg to dance and party, especially with Berlin’s gay and lesbian district located around Nollendorfplatz. To this day, innumerable restaurants, bars, cafés and clubs keep this tradition alive.
The Winterfeldtmarket in Schöneberg, located at the Winterfeldtplaza next to the St. Matthias Church is one of the best farmer's markets in Berlin. One can find produce of fresh, local organic and/or regional vegetables, fruits, fish and meats. On Saturdays with around 200 stalls present, you may discover rare ingredients like wild herbs, edible flowers, foraged mushrooms, wild game, as well as handcrafted condiments, household goods and wonderful freshly-made Turkish delicacies.
