About This Book

Today, food and beverages are a vital part of creative culture. The Delicious presents pioneers, traditionalists, and entrepreneurs who are breaking new ground and enriching the culinary world with their innovative concepts. The book also presents eatery owners who are creating unusual spaces for the enjoyment of food, moving away from the classic restaurant setting.


Eating is more than a pastime, it’s a party; food is more than nourishment, it’s a social experience. The Delicious helps you stay up-to-date with the world’s cooking and dining trends.

Read More About This Book

Whether it’s being eaten, cooked, grown, prepared, or cultivated, food is today’s hottest topic. Its many facets spur our interest, arouse our passion, and provide us with pure pleasure. Being a foodie means being in-the-know about different cultures, traditions and the good life. Regional cuisines are becoming more dynamic—even well beyond the areas where they originated. Cooking classes serve as creative meeting points, market halls are becoming weekend travel destinations, and supper clubs are experiencing a growing popularity. Culinary magazines, special interest publications, and blogs are further fueling the current enthusiasm for food.


Against this background, The Delicious takes readers on a mouth-watering visual journey to discover what’s cooking around the world. It compiles developments in today’s new food culture, such as health conscious cafeterias, contemporary fast food, and restaurants with cutting-edge ideas, as well as innovative catering and culinary events both public and private. From experimental new dishes to modern interpretations of familiar classics, the featured examples will give readers new perspectives and inspire them to broaden their food horizons.


The book introduces pioneers, traditionalists, and entrepreneurs who are enriching the culinary world with their concepts. It also focuses on local cultivation and environmentally responsible distribution to support sustainability and ensure the quality of meat and vegetables. In The Delicious, everything is possible, everything is delectable, and everything promises full enjoyment.


The American journalist Giulia Pines has already written several food and lifestyle books, including Finding Your Feet in Berlin: A Guide to Making a Home in the Hauptstadt (2014) and Slow Travel Berlin’s 100 Favorite Places (2013). She has also written on a range of topics including Berlin’s coffee culture, supper clubs, Jewish identity in Europe, short film festivals, and art exhibitions.
