From the kitchen team:

The true taste is in nature, and food is more than just filling the stomach. We at Bard College Berlin engage with these questions. It starts already with shopping for groceries. Choosing fresh, seasonal, and organic produce of high quality is of primary importance. In addition, we believe in treating fresh produce respectfully so that the natural variety of tastes and nutrients are preserved during the cooking. Good thinking and planning but also a lot of 'joie de vivre' is part of the preparation of every dish, every day.

In order to accomplish this, we have a highly motivated and well-trained team, consisting of full professionals, as well as student assistants, who cook with full dedication and attention to detail.

The result: consistent food quality at a reasonable cost, which fosters the health and well-being of all the members of the community as well as the Bard College Berlin guests.

Lunch is the main meal on a weekday and brings together students, faculty and administration. To cater for all tastes and needs, different menus are offered each day. All meals include vegan, gluten-free and vegetarian options; food allergies can be accommodated on request.
—Bon appétit!
