We interviewed chef Yogini Hufendiek, who prepared the recipe of the week: Galettes filled with mushrooms, leek and cream; baby leaf spinach. 

What was/is your favorite restaurant in Berlin/Brandenburg?
My favourite restaurant is Papaye in Kantstraße. 

What are your favorite farms around Berlin?
My favourite farm is Gärtnerei an den Heiligen Pfühlen (Karolinenhof). 

What is your favorite world food?
If I’m in a hurry, I would say pasta aglio olio e peperoncino. Otherwise I really like hearty stews of all kinds with seasonal vegetables and pulses. 

What is your indulgence (or little weakness) when it comes to food?
I love fried food. 

Any tips you would like to share when cooking local and seasonal produce?
A subscription to a regional vegetable box (or benoo box) allows you to support regional agriculture and try out new/unknown vegetables and give your own kitchen a new boost.
