Zum Fressen gern

Was invited to a delightful formal dinner party at the wonderful compound of the beloved Berlin artiste Natascha Sadr Haghighian who represented Germany in the Venice Biennale last year.

Natascha cooked a sumptuous feast of Persian delicacies that nourished everyone in attendance at her gracious and fanciful table. The high society guests included: film historian Marcuse Siegelstein of Kollektiv CHEAP, Haytham El-Wardany the famed writer/poet, gorgeous art starina Pola Sieverding and her hot and hunky ginger beau Jul, acclaimed artist Pauline Boudry and Marbles (dancer in Boudry/Lorenz's Venice Biennial work, Moving Backwards), curator Ashkan Sepahvand and his American huzbear, personable academic power couple Alisa Lebow and Başak Ertür. Alisa is a distinguished author, curator and award winning documentary filmmaker while Başak is a lecturer in Law and Co-Director of Birkbeck Centre for Law and the Humanities at the University of London, Rabih Mroué and Lina Majadalanie (artists, performers) and Norweigan stranger baby photog Benjamin Huseby.

The other major eventa of the winter season was the birthday happening of Ulrich Ziemons. Uli is known as one of Europas handsomest men and is one of the senior curators of the Berlinale’s Forum Expanded section. Herr Ziemons shares a glorious Kreuzberg flat with his divine lady love the
breathtakingly beautiful curator Anja Lückenkemper who created a most tasty and hearty pumpkin soup, all the dainties including a carrot cake and chocolate tort with Apricot Jam from a recipe of Tante Huberta were executed by Uli himself who is the ultimate domestic demi god, giving Miss Martha Stewart herself a marathon run for her geldenkrantz.

The cafe society punters included French artiste filmmaker Nicolas Cilliins, his hunky young student of political science Australian boyfriend Dustin, award winning French cineaste and hungthrob Guillaume Cailleau and his adorable twelve year old son Jonathan, journalist Ruben Donsbach,
vivacious Romanian filmmaker Xandra Popescu with her husband Dragos, filmmaker Philip Widmann and Canadian galloping gourmand and art preparer Mark Pennock.
