London’s first Berlin brunch pop up – brünch is launched!

It was only a week to go until my very first Berlin brunch pop up at Salon in the heart of Brixton. I got more nervous but also more excited by the day. Ticket sales via the GrubClub went through the roof and my event was sold out a few days before it was all about to happen. I was running through my excel spread sheets about a hundred times, I read my menus over and over again and I became a frequent visitor at Salon drinking all their coffee from Volcano Coffee Works to calm my nerves. I prepared the seating plans and organised all the decoration. I chose which cheeses to offer from their Deli counter downstairs and we put together a fantastic drinks menu including a power smoothie, Aperol Spritz, Bloody Mary, wines and Prosecco, Berlin White beer and and and

I really enjoyed every second that went into preparing my first brünch event. Finding and choosing my suppliers was probably the best part. I visited a number of local butchers,  farmers markets, fish mongers etc and tasted all their lovely produce!

M.Moen & Sons at Clapham Common is my preferred meat supplier while I get my fish from Moxon’s Fresh Fish in Clapham South. My eggs are Burford Brown Eggs, which in my opinion are the best currently available. The yolk is so rich and the colour so yellow – nothing else compares. My German bread comes fresh from Kamps – a German bread bakery, which only recently opened in London.

The day before my event, I prepared my home-made Amaranth Granola and my German Marble Cake!

I printed all my menus at the Impact Hub Brixton, where I often work together with many other interesting entrepreneurs. My menu also includes my food and booze stories – where do my ingredients come from, who are my suppliers, what is fritz cola and club mate made of?

At this point all my Berlin drinks had finally arrived from the German capital and were ready to go …

… The next morning, Sunday 22nd of March at 8am, my housemate Nele, after only a few hours of sleep, helped me to bring everything to Salon. What a trooper! 😀 And here I was,  super excited with a big smile on my face.

My friends arrived two hours later to help me set up the venue. We transformed the venue into an exclusive Berlin brunch experience to remember. I could not have wished for a better team. Thank you Jamie, Pete, Ester, Esther and Christie for all your help and support.

‘This was such a lovely brunch! And a nice Berlin surprise in a cute hidden room above a boutique cheese and wine shop! Great atmosphere, great food – and amazing smoothies!’

‘The food was great and served with a smile and the atmosphere helped make new friends of the other people seated with us, which is something rare in London.’
