A record that always reminds you of Ibiza

KINK – Cloud Generator

The perfect breakfast would be…

My daily breakfast is a green smoothie and a coffee and I love it. But the PERFECT breakfast would be scrambled eggs with tomatoes and fresh chives. Dark bread with a slice of smoked salmon topped with grated horseradish. A freshly squeezed orange juice and a coffee Americano with a bit of cold milk. Some fresh fruits for the final taste

The most unusual thing I have ever eaten…

Fried crickets and grubs – not as bad as expected but not good enough to eat it again


The dish that reminds me of my childhood

Cooked kohlrabi (special type of cabbage) with potatoes and ham


Who taught you to cook?

My parents and my older brother did – my brother is actually the best cook in the family

Your favourite 3 restaurants in Berlin

That’s really hard to say, but here are my choices…

Kuchi which is a very good sushi restaurant in Berlin Mitte

Your favourite restaurant in Hamburg

Arturo 1919 in Hamburg-Altona which is a restaurant of a friend of mine and the food and the service are just soooo good


A DJ that has surprised you with their cooking skills…what did they cook

Daniel Dexter is an amazing cook. Delivering the goods over and over again. Last time we had seafood from the grill…scampi, sea bass and gilthead sea bream – yummy!

Your guilty pleasure food. You know you shouldn’t but you always do…

BURGERS!!! I am not talking about McDonalds or Burger King, I am talking about fresh, homemade burgers. That’s my guilty pleasure food!


What is your signature dish?

Mashed potaoes with grilled zander filet. In the winter season beuf bourguignon


If you could have a master-class with a celebrity chef, who’d you pick and why?

Jamie Oliver because I like his creative and simple way to cook!

Dead or alive – 3 people for the perfect dinner party

Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters cause my wife is a big fan. Bjarne Mädel (a German actor) cause he seems to be a very funny fellow. House legend Frankie Knuckles (R.I.P.) cause I would love to hear his life story

A dish you have yet to master…

I yet have to master a good Indian lentil soup. My wife and I love it and I would love to learn how to make it really good.


Your favourite pizza topping

Broccoli, tomatoes, chillies and on top (nasty but) sauce hollandaise

Your biggest ever food cock up

I am sure I fucked up a lot of dishes especially in my younger years when I moved into my first flat and I had to cook for myself, but I remember a potatoe soup which was inedible

Some restaurants from around the world you adore

The best sunset spot for a cold drink…

Your favourite Ibiza dish

The perfect 24 hours in Ibiza would be…

…going to the beach (Cala Comte) right after breakfast, enjoying the sun and having a swim in the sea. Then having lunch somewhere in Santa Gertrudes. Having an early dance at DC10 outside until 9pm and leaving for dinner at La Oliva in Ibiza Town. Taking the codfish filet on asparagus risotto with a nice glass of white wine. Ending the day with some friends on the villa we are renting out. Having nice conversations and a few cold beers. And then play…
