FINE CUISINE AND A CONVERSATION WITH GERMANY’S YOUNGEST MICHELIN-STARRED CHEF — DRIVE CULINARY TABLE TALK
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant, you might have asked yourself: who are the men and women behind my meal? Giving you a glimpse into the life of a gourmet chef is the foodie-focused Drive Culinary “Table Talk” at VW’s Drive Salon next Monday (15.11.2021). Part-talk, part-gourmet dinner, the intimate event will host top chef Julia Komp, who became Germany’s youngest Michelin-starred cook in 2016 and now runs Sahila restaurant in Cologne. For the first part of the evening, you will join Komp in the Drive dining space as she tells the story of her ascent up the restaurant industry ladder and how she hung up her apron to go on a 14-month recipe-gathering trip around the world. After the talk you will take a seat at your table for a taste-based journey of your own with a three-course dinner courtesy of Jonas Zörner, head chef at the Michelin-starred Golvet on Potsdamer Platz. The meat and veggie menus include the likes of eight-day matured trout with hazelnut, mojo rojo and mojo verde, and a Jerusalem artichoke Chawanmushi with currant, carrot and pumpkin seeds. To accompany Zörner’s creations you will be served perfectly-paired wines to top off a gastronomic evening par excellence.
