TV Series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Laos

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Laotian restaurant Chez Dang

Hao Nguyn does not remember her first years in Laos, but she knows her roots, that's important to her. "Without roots, you are not stable, you do not have both feet on the ground," tells us the owner of the restaurant Chez Dang during our shooting for the series 50 kitchens, one city. Food is a very important root for her. That’s why It is not surprising that Hao opens a restaurant. Here we prepared a papaya salad. It is characterized by spiciness and a very own taste, typical of the Laotian cuisine. "There are many specialties that are unsuitable for Europeans, because they smell and taste extremely," Hao tells us as well.

She also adapted the papaya salad a little bit for her German guests, otherwise no one would order it, she says and smiles.

TV Series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Switzerland

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Swiss restaurant Restaurant 44

André Egger unites two hearts in his chest, the German and the Swiss. In the kitchen, however, the latter predominates, which is mainly due to his grandparents who were based in Friborg in Switzerland, where he spent a lot of time as a child and teenager and where he regularly goes. Of course, we also cook a very typical Swiss dish for the series 50 kitchens, one city: Züri Gschätzlets with veal in a white wine and mushroom cream sauce, with Rösti. They have to be fried in a lot of butter. Butter is very important at all, says the Chef de Cuisine in the Restaurant 44. „Butter enhances the flavor and must not be missing in any good kitchen."

In Switzerland, André Egger appreciates the virtues of punctuality, quality, commitment and perhaps also a little bit the cleanliness. In Berlin he loves the craziness, the creativity and the wild passion of people. "The first few months were a huge culture shock," Eggers admits and smiles. In the meantime, he and his family have settled in and they want to stay.

Film production TV Series: Masterpieces Revisited

Leonardo Da Vinci' “Mona Lisa”

Leonardo Da Vinci's painting 'La Gioconda' better known as the Mona Lisa, has been fascinating art lovers over the centuries. Painted in the early 16th century, it rose to worldwide fame when it was stolen in 1911.

Concept

A journey through Europe to the icons the history of art

Ten paintings that everyone knows. Ten painters and their biographies. Ten masterpieces of art history. Hundreds of thousands times quoted, reproduced and received. In the series "Masterpieces Revisited" we travel to the most famous museums in Europe, show their most famous works and try a new approach to each.

What are the characteristics of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa to be an icon? Or the scream of Edvard Munch? Advertisers, designers, artists and art historians tell us why the old masterpieces are still very modern. They show us their interpretations and talk with us about their motivations.

In the ten-part TV series "Masterpieces Revisited" the Berlin film production Basiliscus Film dedicates ten pictures on behalf of Deutsche Welle, which gained cult status and our camera team made an extraordinary journey across Europe to the most famous paintings in art history.

TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Indonesia

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Indonesian restaurant tuk tuk

Christian Adelius Restaurant tuk tuk is not easy to find in a small street in Schoeneberg. But I would say that every Indonesian living in the city knows it. Here Christian Adelius prepares very traditional food, which is why the Indonesian ambassador also likes to come to dinner. "It is important that we bring together the authenticity of Indonesian cuisine and the desire of Europeans. In Indonesia, for example, you eat very differently than in Germany, by hand and mostly lukewarm. Of course that does not work in Berlin. Here we need cutlery and the dish must be fresh and warm," reveals Christian during the filming for 50 kitchens, one city. In 2012, the host took over Berlin's longest-serving Indonesian restaurant from friends. Meanwhile he knows the tastes of his guests very well.

TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Korea

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Korean restaurant Kimchi Princess

When we met Young-Mi for the shooting in Kreuzberg, she told us very impressively her story, which has a lot to do with intuition, longing, perseverance and a great deal of courage. After all, Young-Mi is a trained actress and was just about to start her career after she got a starring role in a movie during her drama course. She moved to Berlin and stayed, even after the film was shot. "Berlin is a very special city for me because I believe that in no part of the world people could be so relaxed and at the same time experience so much energy. The city is vivid and always changing, but there are also a lot of nice quiet places. It's the best city in the world for me. I just do not want to live anywhere else“, says Young-Mi. We would miss her too, because with her idea of offering Korean food in Berlin, she has hit a nerve of the times. This was again accidental and was owed - only so much - a bet with a friend.

On a design market in Berlin, she tried out whether the Berliners would like Korean food and offered Korean crepes and kimchi. Kimchi, the pickled cabbage next to the bibimbap - which we prepared together - probably is the most popular food in Korea. Since Young-Mi quickly needed a name for her small business, which was not designed for the future, and her friends always called her Kimchi Princess at that time, her decision had been made. Kimchi Princess then became the first restaurant which Young-Mi started in 2009. Two more followed. We can conclude that Berliners love Korean food and not just them.
