Cooking class in German
Turkish for Vegetarians
Out of Gemüsedöner
with Lisa Shoemaker

Maybachufer am Freitagnachmittag. Aus dünnen, hellroten Plastiktüten ragen Lauchstangen, die Umrisse von Auberginen und Paprika zeichnen sich in prallgefüllten Beuteln ab. Zentnerweise schleppen türkische Frauen Gemüse heim.

Szenenwechsel Döner-Bude: Vegetarisch? Äh, Lahmacun mit geschreddertem Eisbergsalat? Nix gegen türkische Pizza, doch ne Plastiktüte voll Gemüse war da nicht drauf.

Restaurant: Hirtensalat und ohnmächtige Imame. Aubergine mit Tomatensauce (Imam bayildi) ist zwar (fast) immer lecker, aber war das alles?

Was machen denn die Frauen vom Markt mit all dem Gemüse? Zur Beantwortung dieser Frage hat die Kreuzberger Hahn-Köchin Lisa Shoemaker undercover ihre Taille riskiert und sich fett-triefende Gemüse- Döner, Kısır aus dem Plastebecher und mehr oder weniger trockene Kartoffel-Gözleme reingezogen, doch die erhoffte Erleuchtung blieb aus.

Erst die Erpressung von Nachbarn (klar borg ich dir meine Auflaufform, aber nur, wenn du mir zeigst, wozu du sie brauchst) und regelmäßiges Hereinschneien bei Freunden mit Migrationshintergrund (ach, ihr esst gerade?) führten ans Ziel.

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.
