Cooking class in German
From Cairo to Marrakech
North African cuisine
with Lisa Shoemaker

Der Maghreb spannt sich von Mauretanien bis Libyen (wir nehmen Ägypten noch mit ins Boot) und kulinarisch mischen sich hier die Einflüsse von Berbern mit denen der Osmanen, Franzosen und Sub-Sahara-Afrika.

Zur Einführung gibt es Ful medames, ein koptisches Gericht aus Ägypten Anschließend ein tunesisches „Sandwich“, ein Salat auf Baguette (was von der ehemaligen Kolonialmacht Frankreich übernommen wurde) indem wir eine Art Brotaufstrich aus Tomaten, Paprika und Harissa zubereiten und das mit verschiedenen Zutaten toppen Für den zweiten Gang machen wir eine marokkanische Marinade aus Kräutern, Gewürzen und Zitronen, Chermoula, in der wir Fisch und Zucchini marinieren, was dann anschließend in den Ofen geschoben wird. Im dritten Gang kommt eine Tagine mit Aprikosen auf den Tisch. Der süße Abschluss ist ein Milchreis mit Kardamom und gefüllten Datteln.

Lisa Shoemaker

Lisa’s culinary coming-of-age was multi-cultural long before the term was coined. It was – of course – her mother’s fault. As a German language teacher, her mother would invite her students to her big, late 19th century flat in Charlottenburg. The deal was: she bought the booze, the students cooked and little Lisa was delegated to the kitchen to „help“. So Lisa chopped chili with Korean nurses – lured to Germany in the 1970s to overcome a shortage –, rolled rice balls stuffed with canned tuna with Japanese students, and after her mother had crossed first North Africa and then Turkey in her Peugeot 404, students from the Southern and Eastern coasts of the Mediterranean steamed couscous, wrapped rice into vine leaves, Israelis and Palestinians bypassed politics and instead discussed whether the chopped salad typical to their region should be called Israeli or Palestinian salad. Lisa did not care, all she knew was that she had encountered herbs and spices that perfectly matched lemon, her favorite ingredient. A lifelong love affair with Middle Eastern food ensued.

Lisa Shoemaker won 2nd place in the ideas competition organised by the state of Berlin as part of its Zero-Waste Strategy 2021. The sustainable use of food and energy is very close to Lisa's heart and she enthusiastically passes on her experimentally acquired knowledge in all her cooking classes. And of course she cooks with food from organic cultivation, seasonal and regional wherever possible.
