Behind the scenes

What do actress Janina Uhse and our kitchen director Dominik Obermeier have in common?
Correct: a great passion for cooking!

As part of the recently launched video series "ZU GAST bei" on Janina's food blog „Janina and Food" she visited the Brasserie Colette Tim Raue Berlin. Dominik Obermeier welcomed her warmly and took her directly behind the scenes and cooking pots. What happened in the kitchen and how the jointly cooked shrimp Marocain tasted, you can find out here in the video (only in German):

Ingredients (for 5 people)


5 lychees
100 milliliters of lauter sugar
2 drops of rose water


20 prawns
for the tempura dough:
1 egg
100 grams of cornstarch
100 grams of wheat flour type 1050
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 pinch of piment d' Espelette
160 milliliters of cold water


100 grams of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of green Tabasco
2 tablespoons of lemon oil
1 tablespoon of vadouvan
1 teaspoon of cumin seeds


Pistachios, chopped
Pistachio oil

Step 1:

Remove the skin from the lychees, remove the seeds, cut into quarters and mix with the lychee sugar and rose water.

Step 2:

For the tempura batter, mix the egg with the dry ingredients, gradually add ice-cold water and whisk to a smooth consistency. Peel the shrimp, pull through the tempura batter and deep fry.

Step 3:

Mix mayonnaise, green Tabasco, lemon oil, powdered vadouvan and cumin. While still hot, drag the shrimp through the vadouvan mayonnaise so that they are lightly coated. Then sprinkle with chopped pistachios.
