TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Italy

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Italian restaurant Bosco

Tradition is indispensable in the cuisine of Federico Testa. „It is what builds everything up," says the Italian, who came to Berlin in 2008 to become famous as a musician. Dreams often end up in reality, in this case in the restaurant Bosco. Federico expresses his creativity in the recipes. The longing for Italy comes regularly when in Berlin the sun begins to deepen. To make it easier, he works with herbs from the traditional Italian cuisine. „There are some smells that bring me really back to where I grew up, which is thyme and rosemary, because I grew up in the countryside and my sleeping room was opening in a garden, so I always had these smells really strong, specially in summer”, Federico tells us in our interview. Both also belong to the Tortelloni with ragout, ricotta and spinach, which we have prepared together.

TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - China

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Chinese restaurant Miss Wu

In China it is common to meet friends and family for celebration in a restaurant. One rarely invites people at home to eat, tells us Zhongmin Greger-Wu, better known as Miss Wu. This is also the name of her restaurant in Zehlendorf. In China you have a big round table, with lots of different dishes and every one can taste. As far as her recipes are concerned, Miss Wu does not make any compromises. Some years ago, chefs thought they had to adapt to the European palate. „But today the guests are very open to traditional Chinese cuisine”, says Miss Wu. For this reason, you do not find duck sweet-and-sour on the menu, fortunately.

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Colombian restaurant Macondo

Asked what he misses most from his home country Colombia, Jorge Rodriguez promptly replies: "These Saturday meetings with the whole family. No matter what happened, on Saturdays, everyone met with Grandma and Grandpa. That was holy." Then they ate and drunk well. Jorge brings this ritual to his new home in Berlin. In his Café-Bar-Restaurant Macondo, everyone - people from Friedrichshain and tourists - meet for a cozy get-together; listening to the sounds of the piano, tasting South American snacks and celebrating together. "Still," says Jorge, "I am not quite a Berliner, it will still take some time!“ We say: Only some tiny bit.

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Montenegrin restaurant Lesendro

It's no wonder that the sea has played an important role in Vladimir Kosic's life. Vladimir Kosic grew up on the Adriatic coast in Montenegro, and one of his great passion was free diving and hunting fish with a harpoon - and then grilling his catch for his family and friends. After finishing school, Vladimir Kosic was drawn to the city to study business in Belgrade. There, he spent many years running a bar and a small seafood restaurant until love brought him to Berlin in 2013. And he brought big plans with him - he was going to open a restaurant.

Later that same year, he opened Lesendro in Prenzlauer Berg. Lesendro is the name of an old fortress on the coast of Montenegro. Yet, Vladi Kosic aims to bring even more of the Adriatic atmosphere to Berlin.
