The 20th anniversary of the fall of the wall is approaching fast, Germany’s own 9.11. I’m going to Berlin tomorrow to see how I will manage a pop up restaurant for 3 days in November. In our apartment. (!) My contribution to the festivities. A warming menu for the end of the Cold war.
That’s what I have in mind:
A culinary event with 2 mouthwatering menus will divide your tastebuds.
Cut off by the wall for almost 30 years, two Berlins existed side by side, each developing their own cuisine in parallel worlds.
You will be served either the East or the West menu.
Overcome your food envy by bartering for the best goodies. Gastro politics were never as tantalizing.
This feast will be held for 3 nights only in a beautiful private Berlin apartment, 50 meters from the former wall, transformed into an Underground Restaurant especially for this occasion.
SATURDAY 07.11.09 @ 8pm
SUNDAY 08.11.09 @ 8pm
