Class with four wonderful Israeli women, who were so curious about the produce and the misconception about 'German' food. I got to introduce them to 'Bärlauch', = wild garlic leaves, which we turned into a delicious wild pesto, using the momentum for the last week it's around. White asparagus greeted us here and there, but I held study telling them the season has not really yet begun. But then I'm thinking: a season begins when a produce is harvested from the fields, no? And I think this first asparagus is from the fields. So, next time, it will be official for sure.
I had the opportunity to purchase a piece of a free range, organic farm raised pig the night before the class. It was a pleasing experience to cook pork, which I rarely eat, knowing that it came from this amazing farm near Berlin.
We did create a purple colored carrot soup - all from scratch and based on a vegetable stock. We had red carrots and they turned our soup into this outrageous color.
Explore Germany’s rich culinary heritage of seasonal and regional vegetable, fish and meat dishes, fruit desserts, while learning about herbs, their healing powers, and the century-old tradition of organic gardening.
If you love food and cooking and are tired of impersonal tours and tourist attractions, then this unique experience offers an authentic and private look into Berlin culinary lifestyle.
