Everything is new in May. At least that is what the seasonal calendar promises. The first asparagus is pricked in Beelitz and the rhubarb piles up in the market. In some of Berlin’s trendiest kitchens and bakeries, they are diligently processed into sweet and savory creations that can safely do without hollandaise and whipped cream.
Between the rhubarb tart and asparagus pasta, there are lots of tasty spring fever. These 11 spring specials are anything but off the peg – although somehow they are.
