HOW EVERYTHING STARTED
My mission is to help vegans and non-vegans share culinary delights.
The turning point
As a vegan who likes to eat well and lives in Berlin, I quickly faced a challenge. How can I continue to participate in the culinary life in Berlin? We all know that meat, dairy and eggs continue to dominate the diet of a large part of the population, and that this is reflected in the local food scene. But I like to eat out and to go to street food markets, food events etc.
Okay, I thought to myself, I’m certainly not the only one with this problem. How can I help those who face the same challenge? That was the birth of this blog. I want to show you where to go as a vegan, even if the vegan label is not on it. Which restaurants and cafés offer vegan food? Which markets, food events and shops offer something for vegans?
I want you to be able to go anywhere with peace of mind and have fun as a vegan. It should give you new opportunities to go out with your non-vegan friends and relatives. Conversely, the blog should of course also help non-vegans to find a location where they can go with their vegan friends. And finally, my big goal is that it will eventually become normal in the food scene to have vegan options on the menu.
What I’ve been doing so far in my life, you’ll find out here.
I grew up in Austria in Eastern Styria. A hilly country with a lot of wine and agriculture. The famous Styrian pumpkin seed oil comes from there, for example. One or the other may also be familiar with Zotter chocolate.
I went to school in Gleisdorf and later studied business administration in Graz, the capital of Styria. During my studies I was on exchanges in France and Hungary. The Hungarian cuisine is known to have a greater intersection with the Austrian than the French. In France, I represented my home kitchen as well as possible. Among other things, I have conjured Topfenstrudel from the very liquid fromage blanc.
After graduation, several years in Controlling of mainly larger companies followed. First at different places in Austria and since October 2006 in Berlin. Until I finally decided to pursue my passion – good food and healthy nutrition.
