BONVIVANT GOES LOCAL — CUISINE FROM FORAGED INGREDIENTS AND INNOVATIVE COCKTAILS

BONVIVANT GOES LOCAL — CUISINE FROM FORAGED INGREDIENTS AND INNOVATIVE COCKTAILS

As a gastronomer, how can you make sure you get the best ingredients? One way is to just gather them yourself – and that’s precisely what Bonvivant’s chef Nikodemus Berger does. He looks after the cuisine at the Schöneberg cocktail bar and bistro and has been rolling up his sleeves to collect some very special supplies for next week’s Berlin Food Week (20-26.09.2021). Berger and the kitchen team have been on foraging trails around Berlin to source the yarrow, cornelian cherries, redcurrants and wild apple that feature in a three-course vegetarian menu they will serve all next week as part of the festival’s Stadtmenü program. The focus: sustainable, seasonal organic ingredients served in a relaxed way (“Eat-Easy Cuisine”, as it’s called here). The venue for the feast is the vibrant copper and velvet interior that has been catching our eye since we encountered Bonvivant in 2019. As for the dishes, you’ll just have to try them yourself, but expect the likes of parsnips served with smoked yeast, quince, chervil, sunflower seeds and cornel cherries. To accompany are three cocktails which take bold and beautiful blending to the next level (apple cider vinegar, carrot, ginger and chilli, anyone?) If you want to enjoy these innovative flavors outside Berlin Food Week, you can book a table at Bonvivant any time and sample the latest treats gathered by the kitchen team. Like we said: tasting is believing…
