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!
