Nicole Hofen is a well experienced chef based between Berlin and Uckermark. She has recently published a cook book, Mein Jahr in der Uckermark. It tells you all about cooking delicious recipes with seasonal and regional vegetables. Nicole cooked the first 3 recipes for Benoo, to show us that it is possible to cook a meal with local and seasonal vegetables.
We have asked her a few questions…
What is your favorite restaurant in Berlin/Brandenburg?
in Berlin I rarely go out to eat, I mostly cook at home. In Brandenburg I can recommend der großen Garten in Gerswalde. There is the smokehouse “Glut&Späne” and the “Café zum Löwen” where Brandenburg cuisine meets Japanese influence and the Paradise, a bar. All these great places are in a permaculture garden. Großer Garten – Dorfmitte 11 – 17268 Gerswalde
