Session 2: Cooking with fermented products

With Cookies Cream, the pioneer of vegetarian haute cuisine

CC Grouppic


Chef Stephan Hentschel is a pioneer when it comes to vegetarian haute cuisine. When opening its doors, Cookies Cream(*) changed the perception of vegetarian cuisine, and not only in Berlin: Stephan put a new spin on plant-based cuisine through obtaining high-end restaurant menus around vegetables while resting the produce as meat (or even pasta) in his kitchen. His various techniques range from preparing vegetables in salt dough, braising them in the oven or in sous vide.
