26° NORTH TURMERIC TONIC: 2017′S SUMMER DRINK IS YELLOW

26° NORTH TURMERIC TONIC: 2017′S SUMMER DRINK IS YELLOW

Are you still sipping on “golden lattes”, or are you ready to to take your turmeric commitment to the next level? For those who’ve let the trend pass by, the turmeric latte is the sporty cousin of the matcha variety: lauded for its numerous health benefits, such as strengthening the immune system. Those who believe will feel it. In South East Asia and India, the place where the tuber – also known as yellow tulip or Indian saffron – originates from is considered holy. As well as adding turmeric to curry or a glass of warm milk, turmeric can also be enjoyed over ice, thanks to the start-up 26° North, who has created a fantastically refreshing summer drink from their Helmholtzplatz headquarters, based on a recipe from Java and made from 100% natural ingredients. Their “Kurkuma (Tumeric) Tonic” looks like lemonade but forgoes the sugar overload for the enticing flavors of ginger, lemon, black pepper, green cardamom and a pinch of Ceylon cinnamon. A perfectly unfussy, grown-up refreshment, and a good alternative to alcohol at the bar. The gin can stay at home, and so can the hangover. We’re hoping to see it become a mainstay in fridges around town this summer. (Text: Nina Trippel / Photos: 26° North)

SARAH KAHN’S NEW BOOK DELVES DEEP INTO EBAY KLEINANZEIGEN

SARAH KAHN’S NEW BOOK DELVES DEEP INTO EBAY KLEINANZEIGEN

Consumption plays an undeniably important role in today’s society. At some point, each of us is confronted with the question of how to get rid of clutter or regretted purchases. It tends to be a lot harder to part with objects than to acquire them. In her new book “Das Stammeln der Wahrsagerin: Unglaubliche Geschichten hinter Kleinanzeigen”, Sarah Khan tells stories of letting go with wit and sensitivity. Since having renovated a former Brandenburg schoolhouse, Kahn has been obsessively studying classified ads on eBay Kleinanzeigen. Along the way, she’s encountered advertisers such as Mr Stein, who was giving away an old designer couch which he admitted he would have rather hacked up with an axe. Or the motivated Mrs Hauswald, who tried to secure her old-age pension by selling her collection of horse books. It’s fascinating to read what the things people buy, inherit or collect say about who they are, and to encounter the burst dreams that reveal themselves through these stories.

KRISTIANE KEGELMANN TURNS CHOCOLATERIE INTO A FINE ART

Take a closer look at the sculptural installations of Kristine Kegelmann and you might find yourself thinking they look good enough to eat. You’d be right — they are. Working exclusively with natural, high quality ingredients, the trained patissier and food artist takes praline creation into the realm of fine art, producing mouthwatering sugar sculptures for exhibitions, events and custom orders. Having just opened her Prenzlauer Berg studio in March 2017, Kegelmann is now inviting the public to experience her edible art through open days and workshops. The next one takes place on 23.3.17, when you can join her for an evening of artistic praline experimentation and creation, inspired by springtime in Berlin. Over wine and savory nibbles, you’ll learn the building blocks of chocolaterie, engage in a chocolate tasting and create your own sugar pieces to take home. Intrigued? Find out more and register here, and support Kegelmann’s endeavors by contributing to her Kickstarter campaign, which ends this Saturday (18.3.17).
