The cooking school of Goldhahn and Sampson
Goldhahn and Sampson offer numerous cooking classes at their two locations in Prenzlauer Berg and Charlottenburg. The offer actually covers the whole world. There are courses on cuisines from North and South America, all across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, Southeast Asia, Korea and Japan. And the range goes from fish to meat to vegetarian and recently also vegan. In addition, there are workshops for coffee, wine and whisky. The latter ones are mostly held by one of the owners.
Their program is published on a quarterly basis. Some courses are marked with symbols to let you know whether they are “veggie friendly”, “vegetarian” or “vegan friendly”. Most courses cost 69 €, but there are also cheaper ones starting from 35 € or slightly higher priced ones for up to 80 €. Water and wine or in our case coffee, tea and cremant are always included. It is also indicated if the courses are held in German, English or both languages.
In the year 2018, I received a gift coupon from Goldhahn and Sampson for my birthday. So far, there were only a few courses that were “vegan friendly”. Meanwhile, that has changed and there are even pure vegan courses. Which is awesome. One of them is the course “Vegan Baking Basics” with Gabrielle and Angelina from Mansfield Park. Of the current course programm I’m also interested in “Journey to Jerusalem” which is vegan friendly, “Inside Aleppo: Vegan” with traditional vegan dishes from Syria and the courses of Indian cuisine, which is traditionally focused on vegetables and where ayurveda plays a large role as well.
