cooking at goldhahn & sampson
remember i blogged about goldhahn & sampson before? that place is a treasure trove of delicatessen from around the world, and to make it even better, they run a cooking school. i've wanted to take the class on french cuisine for a while, and finally - thanks to a prize i won over at slow travel berlin (thanks a million, paul!) - i did.
jan kreuzinger, who also runs a wine store on neukoelln's weserstrasse, was teaching us not only how to cook the dishes planned for the night - onion soup with gratinéed bread, a salad with duck breast, filet steak with potato gratin, spinach, carrots and red wine braised shallots and (as if we could still eat) a hazelnut crème brulée - but was also answering loads of questions. not only did i eat very well that night and enjoyed good company, i also learned an awful lot.
the range of cooking classes is wide at goldhahn & sampson, so if you're more into thai cuisine, persian cooking, or baking, chances are you'll find something to suit your taste.
