ECO FRIENDLY KITCHEN & EVENT SPACE

Professional food production kitchen & woody event space in Berlin Kreuzberg. Cooking courses and a variety of great pop-ups. 
Powered by eco electricity & naturally cleaned with our own in-house cleaning products.

START-UP KITCHEN

For us the community aspect of our kitchen is very important and the reason why we we run this space.
 Our motto is open minded-ness, non-judgmental and open to all. Our kitchen is best suited for start-ups, catering and food prep. We are happy to give guidance regarding business set up, help integrate non-German speakers and welcome newcomers into the Berlin food world.

We do prefer plant-based projects, but are happy to discuss solutions to suit any production.

SUSTAINABILITY


We turn fruit peel and fruit waste into cleaning vinegar which is used for the kitchen hygiene. The bottles, tins and jars left behind by our kitchen users come in handy to transport left-overs, store dried herbs and spices or hold recycled and filtered cooking oil which we are  turning into soap.

We make sure our kitchen works as circular as possible!

WORKSHOPS & EVENTS


We host a large number of great cooking courses and workshops, as well as some popular food pop-ups. Especially in the times of COVID 19 hygiene and the safety of our chefs and customers is our highest priority and we plan each event carefully. Our lovely wooden event space holds space for up to 14 guests (depending on current COVID-restrictions) and we have a lovely outdoor space in the sun out front.

See which events are up next or get in touch to host your own!

What makes us different?

Hi, I am Julia.

I started Daheim Manufaktur as a community kitchen and event space in October 2015. 
After running my own German brunch pop-up in London, I lived in San Francisco where I got an insight into the immigrant kitchen La Cucina in the Mission District. Inspired by the community aspect I went on to work myself through the German bureaucracy jungle for my own food business and took several courses in food hygiene at IHK to start out by myself. I am happy to share all I have learned to make your start a little easier.

I love connecting with like-minded people, learning about other people's family recipes and am happy to help with making your first steps.

My Project: Berliner Zauberkraut

Professional cleaning is a vital part of running a professional kitchen. After a short time, I noticed that conventional cleaning products significantly worsened my asthma so I decided to find a way to stop using synthetic chemicals for cleaning, without compromising professional hygiene. 

 

I began to ferment my own live vinegar in the kitchen from left-over fruit peel together with fallen fruit from a Brandenburg beekeeper to use as the main cleaning product. A little after, I started making natural soap which I turned into an eco friendly dish washing liquid, partly using waste cooking oil from some Berlin restaurants.

As a result, “BERLINER ZAUBERKRAUT” was born.
