I was born in Germany but have lived in the USA since many years now. Before coming to America, I worked many years in the Hospitality industry at a Caribbean & German hotel/restaurant in Jamaica, West Indies. I have passed down the German recipes I grew up with, to my son, but want to share my German cooking techniques from my culture by inviting you to cook and eat with me —family style.

It’s our Anniversary and we decided to do something different. And I must say we both are so glad we did. Let’s start with the host Beatrice she was super nice, very inviting and a wonderful host. Now on to the food. The food was superb. It’s well worth the money. We now know how to make delicious German food. Not to mention her decor was beautiful and table presentation was gorgeous. We felt right at home. Please anyone reading this and thinking about going just book her you won’t regret it. We Loved everything. Thank you for the wonderful experience.

We had a wonderful dining experience with Beatrice. She invited us into her home with welcomed arms. Because it was Father’s Day she didn’t want the dads to have much work to do so she took care of a lot of the prep work. We kicked off the time together with wine/beer and started on the Apple strudel. Due to small kitchen space I would highly recommend this experience as a small group of 4 or less. It allowed for us to do some of the food assemble and not be on top of each other. The menu is very authentic and we were taught ways to cook inexpensively and while cutting some corners. Beatrice is super friendly and wants you to feel comfortable in her home. There was a lot of food to enjoy and kept you full…just wish we could of had some “to go” boxes to take home all the leftovers!

Beatrice was a wonderful host. She went above and beyond my expectations for the dinner she had planned for me. She walked me through every step of the recipes, from start to finish. She made me feel as if I was in my own kitchen. The dinner was really good and tasty! I would definitely do this again and highly recommend this private dinner!!

We are big fans of German food but didn't have a good grasp on its preparation. It seemed very complicated. But Beatrice took us step by step through preparation of a variety of traditional German dishes. She had many techniques (and a few tools) that she showed us that simplified the process and we now feel confident to cook similar meals at home. Thanks Beatrice, we had a wonderful time.

As a newcomer to AirBNB, I was very skeptical to do any experiences. When I booked this evening with Beatrice, I was relatively nervous about going to a stranger's home for multiple hours. Let me tell you about the amazing experience that I had with Beatrice. It started just a few days before the trip when we discussed the menu for the dinner. I told her I was vegetarian, as I was afraid that the menu couldn't be arranged for that. She instantly started coming up with ideas to fit around MY needs/wants. She even verified foods that I could/couldn't eat before coming up with ideas. This definitely started to raise my interest. Right when we arrived she met us outside, and welcomed us into her home. She gave us a quick tour and offered us a drink, which was from Germany and absolutely delicious. From there she told us some stories of what brought her to the U.S. and how she ended up becoming a chef. We mingled while we made and ate our appetizer. We then started to cook the dessert. Once that was in the oven, we started the main course. All while learning how to cook and prepare these meals, we got to chat with Beatrice about anything and everything! We brought our drinks out to her little patio where we watched the sunset. We also got to sit and enjoy our meal with Beatrice, with the sunset behind us. After eating dessert, there was no rushed feeling to leave. She welcomed us to stay and chat with her, and being that my friend and I are Vet. techs, she let us meet her animals, and we got to play with them for awhile. All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend this experience to anyone who is in Tampa! They won't regret the amazing German meal or the amazing experience that Beatrice provides!

Beatrice is a talented chef that showed me how easy a gourmet meal is to prepare. She was able to accommodate my gluten sensitivity with a menu tweak, which was great. I highly recommend this experience even if you are a beginner cook. I was able to participate in making the meal with Beatrice. It was a really lovely evening of great food, wine and conversation.
