Experience all of culinary Germany in a beautiful dinner setting at Schöne Heimat in Berlin. Kit Schulte will cook and present fresh, seasonal and organic dishes from the 16 States in an 8-course menu.
Germany has 16 states and in each of them, one can find a unique dish or grave variations of common dishes. The influences of the neighboring countries are so very visible in Germany’s regional cuisine. The Southwest of Germany is influenced by French cooking, whereas the Rhine River region by foods in Belgium and The Netherlands. Bavaria is close to Austria and loves all the Knödel and Sausages. Spätzle, Sauerkraut made with white wine and Maultaschen are among the favorites in many southern states and cooking in Northwestern Germany has many seafood dishes to offer. Dishes from the eastern regions have more of an Eastern European flavor.
You may have you heard of some of these dishes, but have you heard of Stilmus, Kalter Hund, Borretsch, Rollmops, or Frankford Green Sauce? Did you know that Germans eat a lot of vegetables and have a deep-rooted passion and understanding of organic gardening? That the cultivation of herbs used in the kitchen and in medicine has a written history going back more than 500 years? You can book this unique experience as a group. Come with your friends, family, your business partners or employees. The dinner takes place in a private home, granting a very special, private and authentic experience for your group.
Kit is not only great and experienced cooks, but also have talent for beautiful presentations and story-telling.
Kit from Berlin :
"I have been exposed to growing, harvesting and cooking fresh, organic foods since i was a child. There were grandma's vegetables and fruits, eaten fresh in the summer and fall, and preserved for and savored in winter. I was raised in the countryside on her father's trout farm, where I learned to clean and scale the fish at age 8. Once a year my family processed a whole pig for roasting and for aspic, and after a hunt rabbits hung upside down in the cellar – part of a regular tradition with my father and his hunting friends.
Throughout my life I have shared cooking and serving food, gathering friends and family around the table for delicious meals and good talks often ending late at night. Schöne Heimat shares this natural way of seeking joy, meaning and beauty in life with an extended family.
When I have to travel, food designer and great chef and teacher Inés Lauber takes over. You can read more info on our website www.schoeneheimat.com"
