Can German Cuisine Merge with Chinese Food?
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Newswire.net- January 23, 2013) Fort Lauderdale, FL- Chef Sven Elverfeld, a three star Michelin Chef who was raised in Hanau, Germany and spent his career working at Agua in the Ritz- Carlton in Wolfburg, Germany, travelled most recently to Hong Kong and was smitten by the food and the flavors of the East. Upon returning from Hong Kong, Chef Sven began joining flavors and sauces from the Hong Kong dishes he was exposed to and created some unique German-Asian fusion flavors.
His passion for cooking emanated from being around his mother growing up and always having an interest in the kitchen’s magic. Coupled with creative juices surrounding the world, this particular journey left an indelible mark on his culinary heart.
As one dissects the different meats in the German palate, much of those eaten are very similar in the Chinese kitchen. Beef, pork, chicken, and duck are quite plentiful in both geographic locations of Germany and Hong Kong. Since Cantonese cooking is as diverse in flavors and sauces as exists in the Chinese diet, the same diversity can be shared in the German preparation for the comparably found meats.
There is another commonality amongst the two dining tables and that is the proportion of food served. Traditional German cooking always seems to be in abundance while the Chinese dining table has a lazy Susan on the round tables that generally seat ten or more people so that “fami9ly style” sharing is a must. Consequently, a table of such proportions serves a lot of food. There is a significance to abundance of food on a Chinese table as well since food represented a richness in life that was to be shared with others at all times.
German chefs have become quite popular as the media world has exploded with cooking channels featuring the likes of Wolfgang Puck who have popularized the German food craze but more importantly, the respect for the talent of German trained chefs to be creative using different ingredients in their pans. Chef Elverfeld’s experience only underscores the expanse of the German culinary stars drawing from the creative talents and blends from other remarkably creative places.
In Fort Lauderdale, the talents of Old Heidelberg, German food has become a hometown favorite for South Florida, just North of Miami communities to share a taste of Bavaria.
