Meet at the main entrance of the St. Matthias Church in the morning and shop for ingredients for a seasonal German dish at Winterfeldmarket until 11 am. Winterfeldtmarket in Schöneberg, located at the Winterfeldtplaza next to the St. Matthias Church, is one of the best farmer's markets in Berlin offering fresh, local organic and regional vegetables, fruits, fish and meats. On Saturdays with around 200 stalls present, you may discover rare ingredients like wild herbs, edible flowers, foraged mushrooms, wild game, as well as handcrafted condiments, household goods and wonderful fresh Turkish delicacies. Your cook will guide you through aspects of German food culture, seasonal customs, and its history of organic farming. On the way to the guide's home you will stop at interesting specialty shops, including chocolate and wine.

At your guide's home kitchen, you will cook a typical three-course menu and discover a healthy and delicious take on German cuisine, with particular emphasis on regional nuances, the culinary influences from Italy and France, and Germany’s very special cultivation of herbs and their healing powers. The afternoon culminates as you enjoy a home-cooked meal, served with beer and wine. 
Schöneberg, centrally located in former West, is Berlin’s most colorful and multicultural district. Many film stars, authors, poets, and scientists have felt at home here – David Bowie and Iggy Pop, Albert Einstein, Hans Fallada, Klaus Kinski, Hildegard Knef, Else Lasker-Schüler, Rudolf Steiner, and Billy Wilder– to name a few. Explore the market and take in all the city has to offer before ending your day with an authentic German feast of your creation.

My fiancee and I like to take cooking classes when traveling. Kit's class was great. It was close to the market where we bought everything fresh, we learned some history, and all about the ingredients for what we were making. This was also German food, not Bavarian pretzels, schnitzel, etc. Her kitchen was beautiful and it was fun having a small, personal class. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a class.
