Stories Preserved with Love

Many of our taste experiences have a story behind them which we would like to tell and capture for you. Aside from the handicraft involved we place a lot of emphasis on our long-term relationships with suppliers and their regional products. For this reason, you can find the ‘Best Pesto in the World’ only with us.

Belá, Kata und Toki

On his many trips throughout the world Andreas Essendorfer has not only climbed every mountain and been on every ship, but he has also peeked into every cook pot. His favorites were those at the very back of the stove.
In doing so, he discovered in particular, the art of preserving the most valuable things in life. We combine this ancient knowledge in a harmonious way using the best ingredients, artisanal craft and a quantum of culinary coolness. Thus, a flavor with history comes into being, conjuring up a smile on your face.

Costa Rica

Pure Central American cuisine! With its pleasant sweet-savory spiciness you will have a new best friend while cooking; Glaze vegetables, chicken or turkey, add it to your cream or coconut sauces or just use it as a dip. The flavorful spiciness is a fruity delight in just three seconds! Take care – it is hot!

Oase Namib

One of Andreas’ ideas was to unite two ancient cultures by a culinary merger of Marie from the Namib Desert and Maria from the Bavarian uplands. An absolute harmony of sensations has been created with many precious ingredients to drive your palate crazy. Perfect for pasta, cream or coconut sauces, for fondue or raclette. Put a teaspoon in your dressing, dip it or spread it on your bread.
