First “Long Night of Cuisine” on May 11th 2013

Discover and experience Berlin’s culinary side during the Long Night of Cuisine on Saturday, May 11th, as eat-the-world celebrates five years of culinary and cultural district tours

For five years, eat-the-world has been offering its culinary and cultural district tours in Berlin, Cologne, Dresden, Hamburg, Leipzig, Munich and Münster. To celebrate its fifth anniversary, Elke Freimuth and Katrin Buck invite you to the Long Night of Cuisine on May 11th, in Berlin, where the company was founded.

To celebrate its fifth anniversary, eat-the world will be hosting the first Long Night of Cuisine on Saturday, May 11th in Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg, the first two districts where eat-the-world launched its food and culture tours. “We are very happy to be able to celebrate with our local partners”, says the founder Elke Freimuth. “Five years of eat-the-world would not have been possible without the owner-managed restaurants, cafes, bakeries, bars and other culinary establishments.” In cooperation with Slow Food Berlin, the district newspapers “Der Kreuzberger”, “Kreuzberger Chronik”, “Friedrichshainer Chronik” and the radio station “Flux Radio”, eat-the-world and its culinary partners are offering an informative, entertaining and delicious program. Elke Freimuth explains, “Similar to the Long Night of Museums, interested people have the opportunity to get to know us better and celebrate our anniversary with us”. Participation is free, while culinary partners present a special program and selected menu offerings for a small price. Registration is recommended, either on the event website ( or the event Facebook page (

On Saturday May 11th, the Friedrichshain shops “Küchenliebe”, “Zuckerstück” und “Stadtschönheit” invite you to a punch party with disco appetizers in mason jars. The café “Zuckerstück” is serving punch and cake, and the catering company “Stadtschönheit” is offering appetizers in mason jars, all accompanied with relaxing, electro lounge music from Horst Matrix. The restaurant “Schwarzer Hahn” is offering delicious smoked Thuringian pork with mustard-cream cucumbers, May-punch and jars filled with tasty duck rillette and black nuts. Café Sellberg invites you to a special reading with stories about coffee. While listening, you can enjoy the café’s three most popular cakes: cheesecake, carrot cake and nut brownie. Additionally, you can win coffee vouchers and a Berlin breakfast for two.

Whoever prefers tea instead can join an informative tasting of the trendy cult drink matcha tea. The tea store “Teekränzchen” welcomes you to the exciting world of tea: from tastings to tours through the diversity of tea, a visual tea seminar, a tea tombola with the motto “Every ticket wins”, and an exciting quiz. The Scandinavian candy store “Herr Nilsson GODIS” will surprise with its Nilsson’s Wheel of Fortune: visitors can try their luck at spinning the wheel to win different prizes like a Herr Nilsson T-shirt, a candy tasting or a special discount. You can experience a different kind of disco in the restaurant “scheers schnitzel”, located at the Oberbaumbrücke. At their “Schnitzeldisco” you can get cocktail shots (i.e. Basil Smash, MaiThai Shot, 3-Days-Awake-Caffeine-Shot), a tasting portion of schnitzel and a scheers-dessert for a small price. The party will be accompanied by a DJ desk. Caution: come as a schnitzel and get a schnitzel for free.

Guests will get an introduction of classic German brewing in Kreuzberg at the “Brahaus Südstern”. Small samples of rare beer specialties will be served and its characteristics explained, as Brewmaster Thorsten Schoppe presents his own favorite beers. Other participating culinary partners in Kreuzberg include “Cupcake Cuisine”, “OlioBiscotti” , „Zum goldenen Krümel“ and “W.E.I.N. eG”.

Background: eat-the-world
During various stays abroad, the founder, Elke Freimuth, was always asking herself the same question: What do they eat in the area and what characterizes the way of life of the locals? When she then lived for a while in New York, USA, she noticed that the small, family-run businesses were disappearing, driven by the growth of large chains. The young entrepreneur says of her aim: “As a huge fan of European cuisine, I wanted to highlight the typical foods of different countries in relation to the daily lives of their local populations.” On her return to Germany, the idea of culinary and cultural tours away from the tourist trails took shape and in April 2008, eat-the-world went online. The “eat-the-world” concept remains unique. There are culinary guided tours or tapas tours in a number of European cities, but they are usually complete menus in three to five different restaurants. The idea of having a lot of small, representative samples is new. The company motto: Get to know the area through its food and its people. This concept helped eat-the-world’s founder, Elke Freimuth, persuade the Verband Internet Reisevertrieb (VIR), the online Internet travel portal association, and win its innovation competition, “Launch Pad 2009”. Now present in Berlin, Cologne, Hamburg, Munich, Leipzig, Dresden, and Münster, eat-the-world is the leader of culinary guided tours in Germany, with other European cities under way.
