Berlin is growing. Ideas, new concepts and creativity – in society, economy, culture – and last but not least in gastronomy. For the third time, GASAG is partner of the Gourmet Festival.
GASAG supports the festival because it is an important trend and it makes the city even more attractive and enriches the lives of all citizen.
From February 23 until March 4th, 2018, the German capital will experience a culinary explosion. The ten days of the festival will provide food and wine aficionados with their fill of masterfully conceived gatherings: 50 different events will be held in almost as many locations, with 60 chefs working the stoves — 28 of them from outside Berlin and even outside Germany. Regardless of whether they’re cooking international, gigantic, sweet, hearty or high-proof, everyone will be world class.
They represent over 469 points in Gault&Millau, not to mention 30 Michelin stars. White, red and sparkling wines from over 25 winegrowing estates, including 21 VDP members (Association of German Quality Wine Estates) will be served to accompany the 4 – 10 course menus.
This year GASAG is happy to bring together two projects “Frau Luna” in the world famous “Tipi” location and the support of eat! Berlin, which stand for a diverse, creative and enjoyable Berlin.
In the TIPI you will get a breath of typical Berlin with the performance of the famous operetta “Frau Luna”. To melodies, the well-known acting group “Geschwister Pfister”, Cora Frost, Ades Zabel, Sharon Brauner, Messrs and Katharina Thalbach will show their skills.
The Berlin menu is prepared by the original Berlin chefs de cuisine Florian Glauert, Alexander Koppe, Tim Raue, Alexander Dressel and Sabrina Schanz.
Berlin’s internationally chef Tim Raue will be attending three events this year with three different nights in three locations: Restaurant Tim Raue, Colette by Tim Raue and Sra Bua by Tim Raue.
eat! berlin started in 2011 and has now become one of the ten best gourmet festivals in the world, according to the “Traveler’s World” luxury and travel magazine.
Two-star chef Sebastian Frank will cook at the eat!berlin. He brings his best friend Franz Meilinger from the Austrian “Weyerhof” to Berlin.
The support of longtime, local partners is an important part of the Food Festival and its success.
