I was so happy when I got the invite to the last Food Clash Canteen at Berlin Food Week 2016 Hosted by Côtes du Rhônes. A 5 course dinner paired with their awesome wines.
The evening started with a welcome speech from the super charismatic Carine Patricio, our sommelier, while we enjoyed the aperitive Lirac.
Suddenly all the people on stage started plating the first course: "Salat Nizza" a signature dish from Brasserie Colette. It is a Tuna sashimi with green beans drizzled a delicate sardines mayonnaise. Made by Dominik Obermeier from Brasserie Colette by Tim Raue.
The pairing for this course was a Rhônes wine: Condrieu, a white wine with notes of violet and peaches.
Once we finished the entree, the cooks started waltzing on stage, preparing the next entree: "Saint Jacques, Red beets and fermented Elderberries" by Laurens Friedl.
This Kreuzberger, started his career in the 2-michellin-stars "Fischers Fritz" followed by the 3-michelin-star "Bareiss". Now he is in "Morsh" making beautiful dishes like this one... My favorite of the night, that was paired with strong dry red wine Grenache Noir "Rasteau".
VAU VAU VAU... Remember whenI visited VAU Earlier this year? Sadly the oldest Michelin Star restaurant closed its doors 2 months ago, But we all got to enjoy a course by VAU´s KoljaKleeberg: "Confit Cod in a Porcini Fond with lemon and Marjoram" paired with a Rhône´s "Saint-Joseph".
French Flair was brought by Felix Mielke, Head Chef at Sofitel´s Le Faubourg, With his "Lamb and Ratatouille with Peperoni, Black Garlic, Miso and Hazelnuts" that was perfectly paired with "Côte-Rôtie"
And while we were waiting for the dessert to be plated, we jumped in the photobooth and made some funny pictures, had some more wine and posted some funny snapstories and instastories. I was sitting in the best table of all! <3
Once we returned to our table, the awesome Anna Plagens was ready plating the dessert: "Bisous Plutonien", a Crème Brûlée with Cardamom, Orange and Arlette Croustillante.
Anna is one of the owners of my favorite pastry shop in Berlin: Du Bonheur. This tiny super cute place is just 1 minute walk from my office and it got me soooo hooked on their beautiful french delicacies.
it was paired with a "Gigondas" from Rhônes and coffee from Kaffekirsche.
Here you can check the video from the evening. Sadly it was a bit dark and hard to film... but you can get a peek of that amazing meal! Thanks Côtes du Rhônes, Berlin Food Week and ff.K for this great experience!
