Think of German food and your mind conjures up images of hearty meat-based dishes, fat and juicy sausages and sauerkraut. However, at this upcoming five-day pop-up in Mumbai, German food will be given a modern twist by Berlin-born, Bangkok-based chefs, Mathias and Thomas Sühring.
They are twins who run Sühring in Bangkok, which appeared at no.13 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list, within a year of its opening - a feat unheard of. “Their food philosophy is inspired by their grandmother’s recipes, interpreted in a modern way. Think of what Chef Gaggan Anand did with Indian food; the Sühring twins apply the same thought to traditional German cuisine,” says Raaj Sanghvi of Sanguine, an events company that’s bringing this experience to The Chambers at The Taj Mahal Palace from September 13 to September 17.
For the pop-up, the Sühring brothers are coming down with loads of fresh truffles, Russian caviars, special plates and cutlery. About 10 members of their staff from Bangkok will also be flying down to give the diners an authentic Sühring experience. Diners will be treated to a 12-course veg or non-veg menu paired with expensive wine. “It’s best if diners come with no expectations as their perception about German food will change completely after the meal,” adds Sanghvi. Apart from luxurious ingredients, the brothers are also bringing their two-and-a-half-year-old sourdough starter to bake authentic German breads.
This exquisite meal will include dishes such as ‘Curry 36 (the chefs’ take on German street food), Spatzle (soft egg noodles with fresh black truffles) and of course their delicious salmon preparation (with a generous topping of Ossetra caviar).
Housed in a beautiful villa in Bangkok, Sühring has become a popular destination for locals and tourists. The sibling chefs have over two decades of experience cooking in countries such as Netherlands and Italy.
