USTA Magazine team has recently gone to Berlin to check what’s new on the culinary map of the city. And indeed a lot has been going on. This year’s Michelin guide has brought new stars to the city gastronomy landscape. The culinary concepts concentrating on the local produce and reflecting the local identity are on the rise. No wonder that it is in Berlin that the one-day symposium Terroir Berlin Forum takes place. It starts in just few days on May 15.

– 10/05/2017 –


This event is a part of a larger venture which has been held in Toronto for 11 years. It is an excellent opportunity to get an update on what is going on on the local culinary scene, who is on top, which restaurants are a must-visit and which chefs should be followed. The event will host Sebastian Frank from the two-star Horváth and Marco Müller from the two-star Rutz. There will also be chef Micha Schäfer and sommelier Billy Wagner from another two-star restaurant Nobelhart & Schmutzig as well as Dylan Watson Brown, a Canadian behind the private dining project Ernst, which is just about to turn into a restaurant. The line-up also includes Victoria Eliasdóttir, the chef at Dóttir and sister of artist Olafur Eliasson. Lode van Zuylena from Lode & Stijn, one of the hottest neo-bistros in Berlin, also takes part. The event’s special guest will be a young, German chef Matthias Walter, this year’s contestant at the S.Pellegrino Young Chefs competition.

But that’s not all folk! Guests and speakers are coming from outside Germany too: Ana Roš (Hisa Franko, Slovenia), Matt Orlando (Amass, Denmark), Mark Best (Marque, Australia), Amanda Cohen (Dirt Candy, USA, New York), Esben Holmboe Bang (Maaemo, Norway), Magnus Ek (Oaxen Krog, Sweden) and Jeremy Charles (Raymonds, Canada).

On May 16 a dinner with local and invited chefs will be organised. They will form teams of two and serve 5-dish menus in The Store Kitchen space.
