Rick Stein continues his guide to wonderful city breaks for lovers of food and travel, with some fabulous dishes to cook at home.
His latest culinary long weekend takes him to Berlin where history and the avant garde dwell enticingly side by side. A city that once made history with its divisive wall and Checkpoint Charlie teems today with an overwhelming array of innovative chefs offering delicious seasonal creations like pureed sunflower seeds, Jerusalem artichoke flans and crushed frozen pine nuts. Loved by the likes of Garbo, Charlie Chaplin and Escoffier, there’s still a cornucopia of choice for those with a more traditional temperament with Eisbein, meatballs and sausages topping every menu in town.
Back in Padstow, Rick cooks beetroot cured salmon with cucumber and apple pickle, salt bacon joint with sauerkraut and split pea purée and german apple cake.
