Eat! Berlin Gourmet Festival 2017 - One Of The Worlds Ten Best Fine Dining Festivals

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The time before Christmas is a time of annunciation: Gault&Millau announce who has earned how many points and toques. Guide Michelin announces the number of stars shining over its dearest chefs. And – last not least – we are proud to announce our very own festival program 2017.

Our magazine has become thicker and posher this time around: 60 pages with more than 40 events in 33 different restaurants and venues in Berlin. Fourteen stars shine bright over the sixth eat! berlin, 58 Toques are sitting atop the venerable heads of participating chefs. With about 7.000 visitors gracing eat! berlin in 2016, the city finally made its mark as a festival capital in the realm of culinary delights.

What started in 2011 with 400 visitors has proudly evolved into one of the ten best food festivals on the globe (according to the “Traveller’s World” luxury travel magazine). The demand for tickets is at an all-time high. “Berlin can not only bear the fine art of living, it is actually quite fond of it”, says festival impresario Bernhard Moser, “but what Berliners clearly dislike is showing-off and snobbery”. A delicate balance between luxury and nonchalance is probably the reason why the first events have been sold-out within hours.

A glimpse at our program 2017: For our opening show on Friday, February 24 2017, three fantastic chefs, a Tatort superintendent, a designer/artist, a zoo veterinarian, a neurologist and one of Germany’s finest humorists get together under the motto ”Fierce and Dangerous”.

The best German chef working abroad, will come home on Monday, February 27th: Heinz Beck normally takes care of his guests and three Michelin stars in Rome. During eat! berlin he will work his wonders in a relaxed way at Bosco Verde in Grunewald district. Sascha Stemberg, Michelin-decorated chef from Velbert, will join us for an evening on March 1st, opening a restaurant at Arminius-Markthalle.

Axel Bach and James Baron from the incredibly formidable luxury hotel Tannenhof am Arlberg are coming to the capital on March, 4th. They will go out on a luscious Lucullan limb at Weinbar Schwein. Even chef of the century Eckart Witzigmann will travel from Munich to Berlin to be part of this unique occasion.

Hans-Peter Wodarz will be your not-so-humble host at Olympiastadion where he will be celebrating the Brazilian Carnival with Marcelinho, Kolja Kleeberg and others. We are happy that Komische Oper Berlin is participating again and will even be offering its stage to the festival’s organizers. Michelin-decorated Sonja Frühsammer, surrounded by the stage design from »Snowhite and the 77 Dwarfs«, will create seven dwarfish courses for a mere number of fourteen very exclusive guests.

Tim Raue will not only delight us with fierce food fabrications at our opening show, he has also devised his very own evening arranged around the splendor of Sicily, his second home. We also have to mention Mario Kotaska and Ralf Zacherl who will be part of eat! berlin and the Cordobar which once more will be cooking up something distinctly Austrian for 2017.
