An old friend came back to see us today; Josef Ruona was our very first graphic design intern in our creative studio back in 2012. Three years later he came back to give us a workshop! We’re a bit obsessed with creating interesting textures for our graphic work using physical materials rather than doing it on the computer. Since he was with us, Josef has become somewhat of a master (…)
This is the roasted cauliflower dish from our current dinner menu. It’s served with cauliflower and cumin purée and big plump Medjool dates. These have been cured in oil, vinegar and shallots, making them very soft and very tasty. There’s a sprinkling of dukkah over the top to finish it off.
If you’ve been to our bar lately, you will have noticed some changes. We got rid of the big brands, and replaced them with products which come from independent family-run businesses. We also came up with some new cocktails using these products. On the warmer days, the Rhubarb Thyme is a favourite. The main ingredient is Mondino Amaro, an aperitif made in Bavaria from an Italian recipe. Mondino is made (…)
After lunch service on Monday afternoon, eight Michelbergers set off on the journey to Jüterbog, a small village around 70km south of Berlin.
