Remember APEROS in 2013!

       Summer 2013, we started specials events around APERO! Apero is a french tradition of having drinks and apetizers after work, before dinner. It's a very relaxing moment with collegues or friends around a glass of wine, kir or Pastis. Of course, it comes with some salty treats such as gherkins, crisps, olives, tapenade, bread etc... 
To make it even funnier, we always added a little extra feature. 
Here are our souvenirs. 
Thank you to all participants and guests!

The clothing swap was opened to anyone. For free, we all found nice new outfits! We'll definitely do that again.

For this evening, Julie made around 20 dishes with 3 vegetables per plate. She also made a veggie option. Her Légumes Farçis were excellent, felt so homey and nostalgic!
What are Légumes Farçis by the way?
It's stuffed vegetables, usually tomatoes, peppers or eggplants (zucchinis too). The stuffing is made out of meet (beef / porc) and bread, onions and more. You bake them in the oven and enjoy them in summer.
For now, we're still looking for more pictures of the event...

Mani's bread
Christian's bread

For the occasion, we baked autumnal quiches.
We also had the pleasant surprise to taste delicious homemade bread from Christian and Mani.
Again, anybody could come and sell their creations for free. Claude Cadi is our official illustrator (he made our menu /  logo) and shows his silkscreens on the wall.
We're big fans of Cúze's porcelains that you can find on his page


Justine is a new comer in Berlin, she is initially from Paris where she worked in a restaurant. She offered us to make a dinner. She was helped by her faithfull partner. Great team!
Menu was butternut soup with black chorizo topping and beef cheecks in wine with carrots and agrumes, served with celeriac purée. Beautiful and delicious! When everyone has gone, we had our meal, sharing the last pieces of beef. Such a reward.
