The event was sold out on evenbrite!
The girls behind the vegetarian blog Yummy Veggie Club, Anne and Élodie, did it – they hosted yesterday their first pop up at Oui Madame, a french venue in Berlin Mitte, owned by Jean-Baptiste and his wife Julia.
I pass by the place regularly, but often believe it is closed. Jean-Baptiste opens it for events, spontaneous evenings or on requests. It is a familiar, cosy place and can host up to 50 people.
Last night, the Yummy Veggie Club put together a vegetarian 4 course meal for 20€.
It started with a delicious macaron filled with cheese, pears and walnuts, followed by a radicchio salad toped with a fine almond-mint-spring onion pesto, apples, beetroot chips and goat cheese.
The main course: roasted beetroots, potatoe puree, spinach leaves and lemon gelée.
Last but not least, the dessert: olive oil orange cake served with fresh orange filets, orange curd, kumquats and an almond cookie.
I personally had a great time hanging out in the kitchen. Of course they were very focused and nervous wether the food would be well received, but at the same time pretty relaxed and having a good time.
Anne created her food blog last summer. Since she is a vegetarian herself, she decided to post recipes as a logbook of her dishes, together with her friend Élodie, who is in charge of the sweet part for she is a passionate pâtissière.
Both mothers and working women, they also manage to bake and cook in their free time as well as putting together a dinner for 30 people. Well done!
