The eat! berlin closing gala is the ultimate highlight for multiple reasons. It’s a special occasion to welcome our friends and sponsors who support us throughout the year. Among them are GASAG and esteemed individuals such as senators, mayors, representatives from DEHOGA, and visit berlin.
AXICA will once again host us, and we’re thrilled to have kitchen director Wolfgang Keller, who not only graciously host our guest chefs but also contribute a standout course each year.
This time, we have Stephan Eberhard, the kitchen director of the legendary Hotel Adlon Kempinski, and renowned chef Josef Viehhauser teaming up with Olaf Böhlke from Restaurant Maison Blanche in Kreuzberg to create a remarkable dish. Additionally, Andy Saul, a Michelin-starred chef, and Tim Tanneberger from theNOname restaurant will be part of the festivities. Tim will be receiving his first Michelin star this year. The gala will feature esteemed wineries, including Prof. Dr. Georg Prinz zur Lippe, owner of VDP.Estate Schloss Proschwitz in Meissen, talented winemaker Matthias Hey (VDP), and the remarkable VDP.Estate Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt.

One of them is the “Promotion of the Gourmet Culture” award, which has been bestowed Ramona Pop, Herbert Beltle, Anja and Carsten Schmidt, Alexander Dressel, Bernd Matthies, Gesumino Pireddu, Guido Wegner, Michael Hoffmann, Ingrid and Karl Wannemacher, and Sonja Moor.
