On Tuesday evening this week, we hosted our very first #CollabaryThanksgiving, along with the help of Kochhaus. This event was different to our previous gatherings, where we met for breakfast and open the floor to experts, with the intention of creating an environment for learning.
Seeing as we are in the home stretch for the year, we thought it would be a good opportunity to catch up with our community and to unwind together. Our hope was to reflect on the year and our successful collaborations together.
A group of twenty Berlin based influencers met in Prenzlauer Berg on a cold autumnal evening and arrived to an aperitif, before settling into the space. We were welcomed by the resident chef, who soon had the group gathered around him, getting a laugh with his opening line “but first, we hacken!”
Over the course of the next 4 hours, our group cooked a 3 course meal, while tending to a healthy helping of wine too. It was a pleasure to see everyone lend a hand to get the group fed, whether that was by chopping an onion, zesting a lemon or glazing the capsicums, we all pitched in. Special mention goes to a few ladies who stood out and took the role of provider very seriously; Desirée Elisa and Storm you three were the thanks to our giving!
We would like to extend an enormous thank you to all of our guests for showing up to cook together. First of all, the strength and endurance you showed in that final hour before the main course was legendary. To see you all pitch together, prepare the meal and connect with one another was highly rewarding. We are super grateful to you, our great guests, for staying until the very last minute!
Once again, a huge thank you from Collabary for being such an awesome and inspiring group of creatives to work with.
