Coming up: Stadt Land Food

The best week of food is starting today – with the Stadt Land Food festival, we Berliners are showered with a plethora of possibilities to not only enjoy the best of local food, but also to educate ourselves in the questions of sustainability, learn more about food production and distribution, experience the many different producers and produce, and eat all the best food while we’re at it. All based on the important question what we as a society can do for an agriculture that is better for farmers, animals, plants and consumers. (Read my interview from 2014 with campaign leader Jochen Fritz to find out more.)
As with every great festival, the mere number of things happening can be overwhelming, which is why I collected a selection of workshops, presentations and events happening now until October 3rd, hope this helps!

Last time's winner: CHILEES

Gathering our beloved crew and seven burger artists from all around town to get that bacon going, we’re celebrating a greasy round of burger fun on October 1st at Prince Charles. Join us in the bacon pits, to prepare you for the coldest season and protect ya speck!

Chinese in Berlin: Selig

When the temperatures drop and the sky is filled with loads more grey, when we all know what’s coming for us, it’s time to look to the benefits of the cold season: countless Chinese dinners where we feast on hot chili dishes, heartwarming stews and all the dumplings. So let me suggest a new entry on the by now very long list of places to eat delicious Chinese food: Selig.

Dinner in Berlin: ëlder

Distrikt Coffee in Mitte is very well known for their excellent breakfast food, from pretty stacks of pancakes to intense banana bread, but their chef is striving for more than putting avocados on toast. Hence the start of a new dinner series, focussing on the local produce from Berlin’s surrounding forests. I was lucky enough to be invited for their first vegetarian dinner last week, titled ëlder. A name that sounds very earthy, elemental, almost magical! And is referencing elderflower, an ingredient found in all of the five courses.
