Occupation: I`m currently wrapping up my Bachelor degree in Social- and Cultural Anthropology at the Free University Berlin. At night I work at a very nice bar in my neighborhood from time to time...when not working I still usually end up there meeting friends and other people - would love to bring you along after our dinner as well!
Interesting fact about me
Fun Fact: My mums family comes from a long line of butchers (family business since over 250 years)..I`m the very first one to be a vegetarian..once even vegan ;)
Cooking was one of the first things i was taught by both my mum and my grandmother. I loved spending the afternoons in the kitchen, helping them to prepare wonderful dishes for the whole family. I was born in a small town in Thuringia, so we usually cooked very traditional german food - a lot of meat and potatoe packed meals but also very seasonal and local food. My grandma had a huge garden, where she planted all kinds of fruits and vegetables. It was beautiful and sometimes we spent hours and hours eating fresh strawberries and raspberries, we were supposed to collect for the cake. This is something I miss a lot living in a small appartment in Berlin. The huge variety on culinary influences totally makes up for it though. There are so many restaurants, markets and special supermarkets to discover in this colourful city! I love eating as much as I love cooking - so Berlin treats me pretty well...especially as a vegetarian! I believe that the way people cook reveals a lot of their personality and the culture they live in, which is why I love cooking with people when Im travelling. The best restaurants will never be able to make you feel the way a home-cooked meal does.
Why I Share Meals
I love cooking with my friends and sharing recipes and I love meeting new people and share all kinds of experiences with them...so why not combine?! A meal is the perfect opportunity to get to know each other and have a wonderful evening or morning or afternoon together.
A Memory of a Home-Cooked Meal
My mum used to make the best! cakes when I was a kid. When playing outside in the garden the sweet smell of fresh baked cake would float in the air as she put the cake on the window shelf to cool down. I always got so excited trying her new creations, I had to try it when it was still way too hot to eat...always burnt my tongue! Whenever I walk the streets now smelling a similar smell I remember those days and the look on my mums face when once again I destroyed her cake =)
I’m Interested In
I'd Like to Explore
- As long as no meat is involved..absolutely everything!
What my meals are like
I cook mostly vegan, sometimes vegetarian dishes with all kinds of culinary influences..mostly indian, thai, italian...undefined! There are many beautiful markets around my neighborhood so I try to cook with very fresh ingredients and mostly healthy..there is always an exception though..since I love chocolate! =)
Who You Might Meet at My Table
You are most likely to meet one of my wonderful roommates or one of my friends, since most of them live around the corner!
Where my meals happen
In the kitchen..it is not very big, which is why I can`t have too many people over..but its very cozy! I would love to invite you to the bar I work at after dinner which is right around the corner and offers more space and even more coziness.
