TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City – Poland

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Polish restaurant tak tak

Even as a teenager, Karol A. Kasierski liked to cook the traditional dishes of his grandparents. So it was obvious that the Pole started a cooking education. But after half a year he gave up, somehow he did not like to spend all day in the kitchen. Karol studied marketing, worked as an event manager and communication strategist. On a trip to his homeland, he noticed a Polish restaurant chain. He wanted something like that in Berlin too! He developed a strategy: Polish street food, interpreted in a modern way.

In the tak tak, his Polish deli, Karol A. Kasierski of course offers pierogi with very different fillings, of course also vegetarian and vegan. »This is absolut necessary in Berlin«, says the restaurant manager. But Polish cuisine has much more to offer. With us, he cooked Zurek, a sour rye soup, and his favorite dish. With so much love for food, it is not surprising that Karol – although over detours – but then ended up in a restaurant.
