Meet Martina

As a child, Martina ate what was served to her and in her Upper Austrian family home that meant a lot of meat. At the age of 14 she decided to go vegetarian and has never looked back. She was a serious athlete and a bit of a dare devil, and noticed that dishes like pasta with pesto sauce were not supplying her with enough energy to enable her to compete at the top level. She started experimenting with nutrition and yoga and eventually discovered conscious nutrition, the idea that what we eat has an impact on our environment and also on our bodies. Three years ago she began to eat a purely vegan diet and describes her cooking as yoga on a plate.

Martina operates a small canteen in central Munich that is connected to a yoga studio. She prepares everything from scratch, including her sauces, and uses no preservatives or flavor enhancers. Martina invites you to have a surprising taste experience where you will explore vegan cuisine and discover a whole new world with your taste buds, all organic, locally sourced and made from scratch.

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

In-home meal: (1-7 guests) Martina takes typical German and European dishes and converts them to interesting vegan versions, often with an international twist. She might serve what she calls a Bavarian Bowl, a healthy, flavorful bowl filled with diverse ingredients, including sprouts, raw vegetables, floral salad, legumes, Swiss chard, tomatoes, mushrooms, and a few different dips. Because there are so many different ingredients, it is important to check for allergies beforehand.

Or, she might make homemade pretzels dumplings with a mushroom fricassee sauce, served with homemade saukraut.

After the main meal, Martina will serves her rendition of a classic Austrian dessert called kaiserschmarren, a typical dessert made of fried pancakes, ripped into pieces. Martina’s version is made of tapioca flour, almond flour, coconut flour, berries, and jam, and results in delicious sweet with much more nutritional value than the original version.

Cooking experience: (1-7 guests) Join Martina in the kitchen and learn how to make a Bavarian Bowl. Your hands-on lesson will last about 2 hours, so be prepared to roll up your sleeves and help prepare a savory, inventive vegan meal.

Market visit: (1-5 guests) Martina’s kitchen is a short walk from the Viktualien Market, one of her favorite places to shop for classic fresh produce, as well as gourmet ingredients like truffles, flavored oils, dried mushrooms and even exotic fruits, fresh juices and freshly roasted coffee. Once your shopping is complete you will walk back to her kitchen and start cooking.

PERSONALLY VETTED REVIEW
A Traveling Spoon ambassador visited this host. Here is their personal review.

The Bavarian bowl was unlike anything that I have ever tried. The flavors were so unique and diverse, it was truly a gratifying moment for me. Cooking with Martina was an overall calming and enriching experience. I not only learned how to cook the food, but I also learned some of the history behind it. In the end, Martina not only provided delicious food, but also engaging insight into her holistic lifestyle.
