EXPLORING THE CITY WITH SOMEONE SPECIAL: GET YOUR COPY OF THE CEE CEE X HINGE NEIGHBORHOOD MAP

It’s that time again: the latest edition of The Neighborhood Map is here! As always, we didn’t do it alone — this time, we’ve teamed up with Hinge, the dating app designed to be deleted, to bring you the best city tips for great dates. If you’re in dating mode or simply looking for inspiration for memorable outings, grab the Cee Cee x Hinge The Neighborhood Map. It’s always free and “out there” — you can find it at selected spots all around the city. Follow us on Instagram to see exactly where, or check it out online on our map microsite. Alongside our picks for cafes and bars, we’ve also focused on places in Berlin that make perfect backdrops for special dates. We’ve included recommendations from people who’ve already found love—thanks to Hinge, of course. During our research, we discovered that Jeroen, one of our co-workers here at Cee Cee Studio, also met his girlfriend Marie on Hinge. Naturally, we had to share their story with you. The map reveals where Jeroen and Marie, and other Berlin based daters, went on their dates—and much more. So, whether you’re just in love with Berlin or on the lookout for that special someone, this one’s for you. See see you out there.

“ALLES ÜBERALL AUF EINMAL”: A BOOK ABOUT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, AS ENTERTAINING AS IT IS EDUCATIONAL

“ALLES ÜBERALL AUF EINMAL”: A BOOK ABOUT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, AS ENTERTAINING AS IT IS EDUCATIONAL

Yes, I’m tired of hearing it, too… the term “Artificial Intelligence” is simply everywhere. But AI is here to stay. So, we must engage with it before we miss the boat and end up with a hazy understanding of how it can work in our favor. That’s how “Alles überall auf einmal” by Miriam Meckel and Léa Steinacker made it onto my reading list. The 400-page book was published back in February 2024, but only now have I found the time to dive into the authors’ insights. Surprisingly, it was easy, naturally educational and very entertaining. Even the title is a nod to the entertainment industry, specifically the film “Everything Everywhere All at Once”; the plot of this sci-fi dramedy serves as a fitting metaphor for the multifaceted and parallel dimensions of AI development. Fortunately, the book “Alles überall auf einmal” is more straightforward and engages readers right from the start.

“An excellent introduction to artificial intelligence,” wrote Die Zeit about the book, and it truly is. The work (also highly recommended as an audiobook) explores the beginnings of computer science with pioneers like Ada Lovelace and takes us through digressions into neural networks, bot-to-bot communication, and deepfakes, all the way to the present day. Anyone who thinks an “introduction” won’t offer anything new should remember: Just because we might use ChatGPT or Midjourney, we are all still at the beginner level when it comes to AI. And, of course, no book on AI can conclude without addressing the questions of opportunities and risks. The subtitle “How Artificial Intelligence is Changing Our World and What We Can Gain From It” already hints at this. Here, in contrast to typical German angst, there is a focus on opportunities. This is a book for which the overused term “must-read” is indeed fitting.

THE CHIPP: A FAMILY VACATION HOME NEXT TO LAKE SCHARMÜTZELSEE

THE CHIPP: A FAMILY VACATION HOME NEXT TO LAKE SCHARMÜTZELSEE

Finding family accommodation around Berlin with style and plenty of space… Not so easy, but there is a new destination to discover: The Chipp. The name is a tribute to the home’s architect, David Chipperfield. From the outside, the building is a feast for the eyes. But the owners have also meticulously designed the interior with a color concept inspired by the architecture and the surroundings. The large windows offer a wonderful view of Lake Scharmützelsee, the second largest lake in Brandenburg, which is why it is affectionately known as the “Märkisches Meer”. If you don’t fancy a dip in the lake or are booking in the cooler months, The Chipp has a pool and fitness room. And if it’s not cold for the pool, cosy up indoors. There is room for every family member on two large, comfortable sofas by the fireplace. Another feature is the Finnish sauna — so there are plenty of indoor wellness options. If you want to get active outside, away from the water sports in Bad Saarow, explore the nearby Rauener Berge or the Marienhöhe by bike. It’s worth staying at The Chipp for a longer break to make the most of all that’s on offer. Get a taste of the activities on the website. All that’s missing is the blocker in your calendar and off you go to Bad Saarow! (Transparency Note: logo and web design by Cee Cee Creative)

ACTIVISM THAT TASTES GOOD — FOCUS ON SUSTAINABLE & ORGANIC-REGIONAL AGRICULTURE WITH THE VEGETABLE BOX FROM TINY FARMS

ACTIVISM THAT TASTES GOOD — FOCUS ON SUSTAINABLE & ORGANIC-REGIONAL AGRICULTURE WITH THE VEGETABLE BOX FROM TINY FARMS

The Brandenburg-based company Tiny Farms advertises the freshest vegetables in town — their principle is simple and easy. The organic vegetables, freshly harvested in Brandenburg each morning, are washed and packed directly into vegetable crates, then delivered throughout Berlin (without intermediate storage) via e-transport and cargo bike. You can choose whether your vegetables are delivered to a pick-up station near you or your home. Two subscription versions are available: the seasonal subscription with weekly deliveries from July to November or the flex subscription, which I was immediately drawn to because my previous experience with vegetable boxes, and I don’t think I’m alone in this, involved the effort of coordinating who could pick up or take over my subscription box when I was out of town.

Another problem was that my vegetable drawer overflowed during winter. Even though I find beets, onions and cabbage tasty, it was difficult to eat the quantities supplied in winter on my own. Tiny Farms takes a break during winter, allowing the soil to recover and regenerate. This is very important so that the EU-certified organic vegetables can be supplied with sufficient nutrients in the new season. When the first vegetables are planted in spring, the gardeners at Tiny Farms don’t use heated greenhouses. Everything has its time and season, and the first harvest from the foil tunnel can be delivered directly to your home in mid-May. No toxic pesticides are used in cultivation, the crops are grown in a species- and soil-friendly manner, and no additional produce is purchased, meaning that everything in your box was grown and harvested directly in Steinhöfel in Brandenburg. This “Market Garden Principle” creates a win-win situation for regional agriculture and you as the end consumer with extra fresh and regional vegetables. A little goodie is the vegan or vegetarian recipes from chef Maria Mundt — inspired by the contents of the vegetable box, so you can start cooking and try out new dishes. And if you feel like gardening yourself, Tiny Farms offers the “Academy” to give people with little or no gardening experience an uncomplicated way into organic vegetable growing. It starts on 05.07.2024 with “Farmer For A Day” (registration deadline 24.06.), where you can get a feel for market gardening at the Brandenburg farm.

GOT OATS? — PLANT-BASED YOGURT FOR DAIRY-FREE FERMENTS

GOT OATS? — PLANT-BASED YOGURT FOR DAIRY-FREE FERMENTS

My pantry is full of weird and wonderful things that I’ve bought over the years in the hope that I will finally start eating breakfast. The latest initiative is turmeric porridge, though I’m already planning my next breakfast era, namely the plant-based yogurt alternative from Oatly. Ok, so they’re not strictly a breakfast food, but they do go well with the usual morning staples: granola, muesli, berries and chia seeds, among others. Cutely named Oatgurt, the yoghurts come in vanilla, blueberry, strawberry and mango/peach/passion fruit flavors, though they also do plain if, like me, you prefer to keep things uncomplicated until 9 in the morning at the earliest. The unsweetened version is pleasingly creamy and is made with live bacteria cultures that give it a slight tang. Plant-based yogurts can, of course, be used wherever you’d use regular yogurt: tzatziki, raita, soups, pasta sauces, marinades etc. As for me, I’ll be keeping them at the front of the fridge for a breakfast that’s (hopefully) worth getting out of bed for…

Oatgurt is available at Rewe, Edeka and Kaufland amongst other retailers.
