CEE CEE CELEBRATES 8 YEARS

CEE CEE CELEBRATES 8 YEARS

It started with a passion for city life and sharing tips with friends, more accurately 200 friends with the first newsletter in 2011. Now, eight years later, we’re as passionate as ever and Cee Cee is now a studio with a whole team and a sister project: our agency Cee Cee Creative. We still share our discoveries, but we also create concepts, content and design – perhaps for you? Anyway: thank you for being our reader. Thanks to our community, our contributors and authors and our fantastic team. So, go enjoy the sunny Easter weekend, and if you want to share something with us – praise, criticism or your guest tip – then send us an email. We love emails ;)

XOXO

Sven, Nina and the Cee Cee Team, 18.04.2019

ORLANDO: DISTINCTLY SICILIAN CUISINE WITH A FAMILY FLARE

ORLANDO: DISTINCTLY SICILIAN CUISINE WITH A FAMILY FLARE

Embark on a trip to southern Italy – Orlando’s menu offers a culinary journey through Sicily in a homely atmosphere. Each dish is named after the nine main cities, plus an extra for Pantelleria Island. And with the menu rotating monthly, you’ll never run out of new interpretations on the classics. For April 2019, the Pantelleria Island salad contrasts perfectly pickled capers against a tartare of tomatoes, olives and bread crumbs; the Agrigento pairs homemade ravioli with a rich green bean and sheep’s ricotta cream; and the savory Messina offers turkey rounds stuffed with ground beef, italian sausage, parmesan, and chard. Founder Giulia Palillo sources her ingredients exclusively from Sicily and Brandenburg, placing an importance on knowing her producers in person. Look around to see pieces of Sicily everywhere: the kitchen sideboard from Giulia’s old apartment, her grandmother’s chandelier, delicate blue porcelain tiles, and ceramic pine cones, a traditionally welcoming symbol. So skip the flight south and head north to Prenzlauer Berg for some authentic Sicilian fare. (Text: Michael Rice / Photos: Johanna Rademacher–Flesland)

KRUMULUS: A TREASURE TROVE OF CHILDREN’S BOOKS RIGHT AT SÜDSTERN

KRUMULUS: A TREASURE TROVE OF CHILDREN’S BOOKS RIGHT AT SÜDSTERN

“Liebe kleine Krumulus, lass mich niemals werden gruß” (“Oh my dearest little squiggle. Don’t let me grow any biggle”) is the spell Pippi Longstocking and her friends recite at the end of their adventures, explains Anna Morlinghaus, whose bookshop takes its name from the tale. Krumulus is Berlin’s – or rather Germany’s – most beautiful bookshop for children and teens and winner of the 2018 German bookshop prize. Entering the charming Kreuzberg store on a Saturday, you’re met with hustle and bustle, but given the care put into the shop’s look and feel, it’s never overwhelming. In addition to giving passionate book advice, Krumulus specializes in offering a remarkable selection of titles including beautiful picture books, out-of-print antique treasures and even French and English books. An event program is central to the concept and includes readings and children’s concerts. The 120-year-old hand printing press allows kids to have some fun under expert supervision while adults browse the shelves and stock up on bread and flowers for the weekend at the Neuer Markt am Südstern next door.

CECILE VADAS RECOMMENDS: LOSE YOURSELF IN THE BAROQUE GARDENS OF GUTSPARK BRITZ

CECILE VADAS RECOMMENDS: LOSE YOURSELF IN THE BAROQUE GARDENS OF GUTSPARK BRITZ

We all know about the Britzer Gardens, but have you ever heard of Gutspark Britz? Let me show you the traditional Baroque style garden and it’s little oasis that requires nothing more than family and friends for a free Easter weekend activity. The Gutspark was built initially as a flower garden in the traditional Baroque style. It’s home to Germany’s first Robina tree and still remains a monumental attraction today. To entertain family, friends and those energetic kids, look no further than the park’s farm yard. Home to a selection of animals including horses, black sheep, goats, cows, chickens and geese, there’s practically a small zoo waiting for you. The best part of the park? Picking up the slightly tattered brushes hanging from the black sheep’s enclosure fence. The sheep go crazy when you rub their backs and brush their heavily knotted coats. The park’s history goes back to the 1600s, as does the manor house’s. There is certainly a lot awaiting you at the park, only 10 minutes from Hermannstraße.

SAWADE — DECADENT TREATS FROM A CLASSIC BERLIN CHOCOLATIER

SAWADE — DECADENT TREATS FROM A CLASSIC BERLIN CHOCOLATIER

Spicy ginger truffles covered in milk chocolate, the finest dark chocolate marzipan with hazelnut crunch or sweet and velvety pistachio nougat wrapped in milk chocolate – you’d want this list of mouthwatering delicacies to go on forever, and at Sawade, it almost does. Established in 1880 and produced locally in Reinickendorf, Sawade is the city’s oldest chocolatier, creating the most exquisite chocolate and truffle specialties from only the finest ingredients. But it’s not only the content that is seductive: the elegant packaging makes it a unique gift for loved ones. Pair a divinely nutty nougat box with a porcelain cup by the Royal Porcelain Factory Berlin KPM and surrender to the delights of coffee and chocolate in the afternoon. You can’t get any more local than that! Sawade is available online and in selected retailers, as well as at their three storefronts in Mitte, Charlottenburg and Wilmersdorf.
