It proves that fusion cuisine is the mirror of today’s society.
You decide: Sweet or salty? Food, I prefer salty. Cooking, I prefer sweet. (laughs) Spicy or mild? Definitely spicy. Baking or cooking? I love both equally. But my passion is sweet food. I ran a patisserie on a Brazilian island. Just like my gran. When I returned to Germany, bureaucracy put an end to my sweet creations because I didn’t have a master craftsman’s diploma. That’s how I turned to cooking. But you can also call that fusion: I united what I love: cooking and baking.
Which food touches your soul? Hot, crispy baked dumplings filled with tomato palm heart ragout (Pastel de Palmito) … And which food touches your palate? A ceviche at Callao fish market in Lima is amazingly fresh, juicy, aromatic, spicy and invigorating.
What is your personal super-food? At the moment, it’s my home-made quinoa-linseed crispbread.
Hectic in the kitchen: I get peace and strength from … good organisation and everything in its place. That’s the best foundation for arranged chaos.
