Stadt Land Food: Interview with Jochen Fritz

Are you excited for Stadt Land Food? As excited as we are? What are you most looking forward to? Malin Elmid presenting her book on the art of bread? Boris’ local and seasonal vegan and raw supper club? Cathrin Brandes’ fermentation workshop at Culinary Misfits? The craft beer tasting by the Berlin Beer Academy? Or the workshop by the super famous and very important Nordic Food Lab?
However, forming the background is the serious concern for contemporary agriculture that will be addressed in a congress meeting organized by “Meine Landwirtschaft” (My agriculture). I met the campaign leader Jochen Fritz to find out what we’ll learn…

Stadt Land Food: Hidden Chefs

Did you know that this week will be the best week for this city’s foodies and food-activists? It’s Stadt Land Food everyone! A gigantic festival celebrating great food and good agriculture. Organized by Martkhalle IX, this festival will take over not only their own holy halls, but the surrounding streets and squares, where not only the biggest Street Food Thursday as of yet will happen, but also markets with wonderful products. And there’ll be an award for the best street food, and there’ll be workshops where real food crafts will be demonstrated and so much more, you better take a look at their website if you don’t want to miss out. A very special event happening during this week is Kavita Meelu’s newest adventure, a dinner series called Hidden Chefs! (Read closely, we’re giving away 1×2 dinner seats for one of them!)

Breakfast in Berlin: Betty’n Caty

To be perfectly honest, when I first passed by this recently opened café, I only thought “not another Prenzlauer Berg café…”. But this hasty judgement was obviously failing to realize Betty’n Caty’s offering is deliciously different from the rest. Read: banana porridge with blueberries for breakfast or quinoa salad with wild herbs, avocado and feta cheese for lunch. Intrigued? So was I!

Escape: Eating in Lisbon

Last month, I fell in love with Lisboa. Being there for the first time ever (first time in Portugal even!), I was overly excited to try as many Portuguese dishes as I could: From oven cooked octopus to freshly grilled sardines, from dozens of Pasteis de Belém to ice cold Mazagran (coffee with lemon and sugar), I ate my way through this lovely city, walking up and down the hills, enjoying the many different districts and just having the best of times (seriously, I loved it). Staying in a lovely AirBnB apartment just off Jardim do Príncipe Real (very recommendable location, you can walk almost anywhere and there are a plenty of cafés, eateries and shops around.) I was lucky enough to have local guides leading me to the nicest places and of course can’t wait to share my eating experiences with you, just in case you ever find yourself in the city and don’t know where to eat.

Italian in Berlin: Nudo

Italian cooking is always kind of falling off the table when I think about interesting things to try and explore in Berlin. It somewhat is such a staple, that I tend to not think too much about it… But then, it’s such delicious food with so much potential…! Anyhow, I just recently heard about a fairly new menu-restaurant at Lausitzer Platz in Kreuzberg and so I cycled down from Mitte one surprisingly beautiful evening last week to taste-test Nudo with a friend.
