TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Portugal

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Portuguese restaurant Lisboa Bar

When Fernando Almeida moved from Lisbon to Berlin, his main focus was to learn the language. "Speaking German was very important to me, because I wanted to participate in life and did not remain on the other side," the chef tells us during the film production for 50 kitchens, one city. Fernando likes to capture the mood in his restaurant Lisboa Bar. That is, whenever it is possible, he comes out of the kitchen, goes from table to table and asks his guests if they like his food. For example the fish bowl "Cataplana Mar e Terra", which we prepared together. It tastes great! We were able to convince ourselves of this.

TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Argentina

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Argentinean restaurant Gloria

Talking, eating and drinking together - in Argentina, that means life style. You actually meet constantly and then there is definitely Empanadas. The dumplings are the favorite food of the Argentinians, next to steaks of course. And they are versatile, because you can fill them with everything possible, as we learned during our shooting in the restaurant Gloria. „When I was a child, there was always a big barbecue at my grandpa’s place each Sunday. And we ate a lot of Empanadas. This is one of my most beautiful childhood memories“, says Santiago Farfan Marque, who runs the restaurant together with Maximiliano Pallocchini. The Argentinian misses these Sundays a lot, but after four years, he also feels quite comfortable in Berlin. Because the Berliners are similar to the people in Buenos Aires - they have a big trap and are very kind, Santiago tells us.

TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Iran

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Iranian restaurant Saray

In 1979 Saeed Sanatpour came from Iran to Berlin as a student of communications technology. In his profession, however, he never worked, instead he opened a restaurant. In the "Saray" he serves the cuisine of his childhood, which is closely linked to his mother, who cooked the very best Gheimeh Bademjan, as Saeed tells us during our day of shooting. This traditional dish we also cooked together for the TV series 50 kitchens, one city. However, the Iranian tells us, "If I were to eat this in Iran, it certainly would taste better, because of the memories. Even if Germany is now my home, I was very much influenced by Iran, and that makes the taste of home." Emotionally detached, we absolutely love it!

TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Thailand

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Thai restaurant Dao by Meo

Good vibrations, lots of fun, traditional Thai food and a little bit of sun: Pratina Kross would like to bring all this to Berlin. After spending a day with her at her Dao by Meo restaurant in Charlottenburg, we know she's fulfilling all of her wishes. Pratina, when she came to Germany in 1997, was first disappointed by her new home. She thought everything is pink and beautiful. But it was cold, constantly dark, she did not understand the language, and knew no one. But the Thai woman has a rather sunny disposition and at the same time is a very good businesswoman. Ambitiously, she pursues her goals. Beside her restaurant, she also runs a cooking school. Here, Pratina prepares for us a yellow curry with chicken according to an old family recipe. Delicious!

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.
