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.
