TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Slovakia

A cross-media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Slovakia restaurant platz doch

Vanda Molnár's grandmother was born in Berlin, but she emigrated to Slovakia many years ago because of a big love. The love for cooking is deeply manifested in Vanda's family. Vanda Molnár's mother is an enthusiastic chef and she passed this passion on to her daughter. The funny thing is: Vanda moved from Bratislava to Berlin 16 years ago, right into the footsteps of her grandmother. In Berlin she now runs her restaurant „platz doch!” together with Silvia Pintérová, who was also born in Bratislava. By the way, both were born in the same hospital in 1976, only with one day difference. The two chefs offer Slow Food, inspired by the Slovakian way of cooking. The restaurant has a very beautiful minimalistic design and an open show kitchen, were Vanda and Silvia prepare their tasty dishes.

They serve natural wines from their home country and other regions of Central and Eastern Europe. Vanda regularly visits her home country to buy ingredients from small farmers, organic winegrowers and small organic farms. They get the fresh products from regional small businesses in Berlin and Brandenburg. „platz doch!" is much more than just a place to eat well. The two chefs want to convey food culture from their Slovakian homeland. „platz doch!” Is not only a restaurant, it is much more, a shop, a meeting place where you can make friends and also an event agency. If you like, you can rent the room for pop-up events and celebrations.

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.

TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Cuba

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Cuban restaurant La Pequena Habana

Finding a restaurant in Berlin that serves good Cuban cuisine was not easy. Through a tip from a chef we know we discovered La Pequeña Habana in Schoeneberg. From the outside rather inconspicuous, the guests can expect an excellent cuisine inside and lots of passion for the gastronomy. Iris Garofalo loves being a host, her husband Eric performs in the kitchen.

For the TV series 50 Kitchens, one city we cooked together the Cuban national dish, Ropa Vieja, a dish made of beef, which is prepared in a special way. But also the avocado salad and the daily fresh fish dishes are absolute delicious. For Iris and Eric with the La pequeña habana a long-desired wish became reality, they told us during the shooting. "Food plays a huge role in Cuba. We are family people. We all like to eat together and we enjoy food. We all come together at the table and tell each other how the day was, talk about everything. No matter what, we enjoy the food.” During our filming, many Cubans ate and dined at the restaurant. A good sign, as we find.

TV series: 50 Kitchens, one City - Cambodia

A cross media film production about Berlin based restaurants

TV and web series with the Cambodian restaurant Angkor Wat

The film that we produced about Dany Hok has a very special meaning for us. On the one side the Cambodian was the first one we filmed for 50 kitchens, one city in June 2016. On the other side, his life story touched us deeply. That Dany trusted us and shared his story with us is not quite self-evident. All the more we would like to say thank you again. And if you would like to taste the authentic cuisine of Cambodia in Berlin, Danys restaurant Angkor Wat in Moabit is highly recommended. One more advice: Amok Trey tastes delicious.
