The small French locale Gourmanderie, previously well-known throughout the borough under the name Le Piaf on Schloßstraße, moved into Centre Français on Müllerstraße in Berlin-Wedding at the beginning of the year. The slightly less royal environment hasn’t affected the kitchen and „service charmant“ a bit.

With all the ambience of a typical French brasserie, host Claude Trendel still offers authentic French cuisine and a menu that changes monthly, inspired each time by a different theme or region of France. He brings a special passion- as if the French could do it any other way- for the corresponding French wines.

We order from the current November menu „Bejoulais“, whereby you can select from three to six courses. For our starters we go for the boar and spinach dumplings, which are doused in red wine and baked in the oven. Served over pumpkin spaghetti, we are smitten.

A poached skate wing with lemon capers and croutons in nut butter, accompanied by carrots served two ways, follows. Perfectly delicious and my favourite course of the evening. My companion enjoys veal kidneys with a port sauce, light mashed potatoes, and brussel sprouts with bacon.

We share the oven-baked cauliflower with reblochon sauce and light mashed potatoes, so as to save room for dessert. With this dish, Gourmanderie provides for those who prefer more vegetables, but we’re also quite impressed with it.

The kitchen leaves comfortable breaks between each course, which we have the incredible opportunity this evening to use to follow along Claude Trendel’s inspiring wine and cheese tasting at the table next to us. The Elsace native takes his guests on a journey of not just the culinary scene, but also the various wine regions of his homeland, France.

For dessert we indulge in a quince sorbet with walnut-honey cake, recommended to us by our friendly and exceptionally attentive server. A wonderful conclusion to a glorious French evening at Gourmanderie in Centre Français. – Vive la France!
