ROYAL RELAXATION IN GRUNEWALD — TAKING TIME OUT AT SCHLOSSHOTEL BY PATRICK HELLMANN

ROYAL RELAXATION IN GRUNEWALD — TAKING TIME OUT AT SCHLOSSHOTEL BY PATRICK HELLMANN

Sometimes the best things are right in front of you – especially when it comes to staycations. If your to-do list is getting longer and longer and you’re haunted by your email alert ping, maybe it’s time to reward yourself with a trip to Grunewald. A walk in the forest there is medicine itself, but don’t stop at that: head to the spa and wellness area at Schlosshotel Grunewald by Patrick Hellmann and relax in the spacious pool and Finnish sauna as the hustle and bustle of the city fades. Add a massage and the stress of everyday life is well and truly forgotten. The location for this indulgence is a Prussian palace with a 100-year-old history: once owned by art patron Walter von Pannwitz, even Kaiser Wilhelm II is said to have stayed at this residence. Walking through the halls of the Schlosshotel you can feel the glamor of yesteryear, but the rooms and suites are fresh and new – furnished by namesake Patrick Hellmann. They are exactly what you would expect in a palatial hotel: elegant and dignified. Once you’ve rested and refreshed at the spa, head to the newly opened PHC bar and relax with friends over cocktails in a cozy atmosphere. An overnight stay is the ultimate way to extend your visit and naturally includes breakfast fit for a king.

URSTROM KAESE — GOURMET CHEESES FROM BRANDENBURG AND MUCH MORE AT THE MARKTHALLE NEUN CHEESE FESTIVAL

URSTROM KAESE — GOURMET CHEESES FROM BRANDENBURG AND MUCH MORE AT THE MARKTHALLE NEUN CHEESE FESTIVAL

With its knobbly charcoal black rind concealing a ripened, rich center, the Mulberry Weichkaese is what you might call a challenging cheese. But then cheesemakers Paul Thomas and Yule Seifert, founders of Urstrom Kaese, never went into the business to make run-of-the-mill Emmental or Cheddar. The British-Belgian duo spent years learning about the art and science of cheesemaking before starting their own creamery in Schöbendorf, a tiny village in Brandenburg 70km south of Berlin. There, they set to work creating cheeses that don’t fit the mold, so to speak. The result is three varieties: the fresh, spreadable Urstrom Frischkaese, the intense and creamy Baruther Urstromtaler and the World Cheese Award-winning Mulberry Weichkaese. All three have a unique, memorable flavor which is thanks to the pair’s scientific backgrounds – Paul studied biochemistry and Yule studied engineering – but also the happy cows that produce the milk.

The bovines in question are a Jersey herd who are allowed to graze on 400 hectares of outdoor pastures to produce the rich, creamy milk that makes the breed famous. If you want to sample the cheeses yourself, this week is the perfect time as Markthalle Neun returns with its Cheese Berlin festival (12–14.11.2021) with three days of tasting and talks. You can taste and buy the Urstrom Kaese range at the Alte Milch shop in the Markthalle – check out the full festival program online.

CUISINES, CHEFS AND CONVERSATIONS — TELLER STORIES FOOD PODCAST FROM TINA HÜTTL, JOHANNES PAETZOLD AND CEE CEE

CUISINES, CHEFS AND CONVERSATIONS — TELLER STORIES FOOD PODCAST FROM TINA HÜTTL, JOHANNES PAETZOLD AND CEE CEE

Tasting by listening – that’s what Teller Stories is all about. The foodie podcast series is the perfect soundtrack for when you’re cooking – or indeed looking for a restaurant for the weekend. Berlin’s food scene has never been more lively: there are more and more spots and they only get better and better. We share our top picks because we simply love eating and exploring the city’s culinary scene. Tina Hüttl and Johannes Paetzold, the two gastro experts who founded the podcast, are just the same. Tina is a food critic and podcast pro who we know and love from her reviews in various print outlets. Johannes is a curious reporter whose voice you may know from the “Paetzold Platziert” show on Radio Eins. Since Cee Cee shares a passion with the pair, we decided to team up for a new series of Teller Stories by Tina Hüttl, Johannes Paetzold and ourselves, with episodes released every Thursday on Podigee and Spotify.

Each show is a multi-course affair: the duo hear from top players in Berlin’s restaurant scene, gaining the best insights on topics ranging from the bizarre to the practical. All cuisines, price ranges and tastes are catered for. If you’re curious, you can start listening directly via Podigee and Spotify. In today’s episode: the pair reveal the restaurant picks of some of the city’s top chefs, celebrity cook Tim Raue talks about how difficult he was at the beginning of his career, and Sissi Chen presents the ultimate Chinese dishes for children. Got an appetite? We have.

FINE GINS, INGREDIENTS AND TIPS FOR ELEGANT WINTER DRINKS — THE ADVENT CALENDAR FOR ADULTS FROM DRINK SYNDIKAT

FINE GINS, INGREDIENTS AND TIPS FOR ELEGANT WINTER DRINKS — THE ADVENT CALENDAR FOR ADULTS FROM DRINK SYNDIKAT

It can seem a pity that many Christmas traditions are reserved for children. But who says adults can’t get into the festive spirit? We still love unwrapping sweet surprises, and luckily for us we’ve found an advent calendar that’s very much for grown-ups. Behind the 24 doors of the Gin Cocktail Advent Calendar await the makings of exquisite gin cocktails: every two to four days you’ll reveal enough vermouths, tonics and bitters to mix in style! And since good cheer is best shared, there’s enough drink in there for two. The calendar blends some of our favorite holiday activities: counting down the advent and enjoying quality time with friends. The duo behind the concept, Jens Hoffmann and Erik Pfauth, are pros when it comes to home bar culture: since 2014, they’ve been devoted to creating cocktail sets for the at-home enthusiast, with no experience or fancy equipment necessary.

This passion is reflected not only in the beautiful design of the Gin Cocktail Advent Calendarbut also in the ingredients. Hoffmann and Pfauth source spirits from small manufacturers and the pair even make their bitters and syrups themselves. If you find yourself drinking the same gin and tonic every night, ’tis the season to discover something new. How about the duo’s Cinnamon Smoked Negroni? Or a fresh mix with sparkling wine and tangerine gin? Sound like your sip? You can order the calendar online.
