Where I am from

Born 1980 in Potsdam, I spent my first years in the former GDR. By then with a rather small interest into cooking, as my part definitely was the eating. Looking back I still got a lot of influences of these years. There was not too much variety and if you wanted to make a difference, you had to be creative.

At the age of 16, I started my apprenticeship. My decision was to become a pastry chef and very soon discovered my love for this business. The preparation of food is not just a job. If you don´t really love what you are doing, one can taste it easily.

The way

I came around a little here and there over the years. Form Michelin starred restaurants to five star hotels. Always practiced and improved my skills, with different chefs and colleagues. This time really was the most valuable, because I took a little bit from everybody I met along the way. Furthermore I could slowly develop my own style.


The conclusion

After twenty years in the culinary industry the essence is simple: FOOD IS ESSENTIAL TO LIFE, THEREFORE MAKE IT GOOD. I chose these words, to be the credo for Eatery Berlin. A simple rice pudding deserves the same amount of dedication, as it does to cook a fancy menu.

What you will find on this site can be everything, but most of all it will be quality, so you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Keep on stirring in your pots and pans!

  • Eatery Berlin keeps its origin – quality in every way it is presented

  • my point of view is honest and not bought, so I would not work with anybody in the first place leaving me with doubts

  • cooperations could be photography, reviews, social advertising on my channels, events, recipe authoring, journeys or contests

  • brand cooperations are always clearly labeled

  • all links will be provided with the „nofollow“ attribute to each advertiser according to Google´s policy for webmasters. Thus, these links will be not considered in Google ranking and can not be bought
