Carsten Kuschel has been a self-employed chef for more than 12 years. He has loved good food since he was a little boy. He originally studied agriculture and thus laid the foundation for his cooking career. After all, if you know how ingredients are created, you can process them more consciously. His culinary thirst for knowledge led him first to Palermo in Italy, then via France and Holland to London and Mallorca. He also travelled the world on the AIDA and gained experience.

Carsten Kuschel thinks that cooking strictly according to a recipe book is overrated, because he misses the personal touch of the chef. So a little freestyle is always part of his programme.

The correct use of spices is particularly important to him, because they give the food the right touch - naturally - without flavour enhancers. He wants to show the cooking students and all those interested the simple and good cuisine and simply make them happy with his food. He is not only concerned with classic dishes - sushi, fork buffets and finger food also enjoy a high priority with him.

After more than ten years with his own restaurant, the professional decided on a new path. Because he needs direct contact with the guests, he became an event chef. Since then, his skills have been seen on RTL and VOX, on MDR and in many cooking schools as well as at countless live caterings.


Basic fund
Cut all the ingredients for the stock into small pieces if necessary, put them in a pot, simmer for two hours and reduce by about half.

Dice the onion and sauté in Schlagfix rapeseed oil. Dice the pumpkin, apples, fennel, peppers and potato and add to the onions. Add the spices and mix everything together. Then deglaze with the base stock, add salt, sugar and bay leaf. Bring to the boil briefly and then cook over a low heat for about 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and purée the ingredients in a blender. Heat again on the cooker and add the Schlagfix universal whipping cream. Season with brandy and serve with some lemon yoghurt.

Wash the rocket and pat dry. Heat Schlagfix rapeseed oil and deep-fry the rocket leaf by leaf in a pan for about ten seconds.
