A Midsummer Night’s Dream of Coffee
Anybody who knows the star restaurant Kuppelrain knows that Nathalie has always been around in the family business, baking biscuits and having fun in the kitchen. Her heart beats for the sweet enjoyment of this world. After training as a pâtissière she returned to her parents’ business. Meanwhile she has matured into becoming an extremely creative young talent and brings pleasure with her young and creative spirit, which is reflected by her creations with which she does not only discover novelties all the time, but also takes up old things. Thus, a ‘lolly’ may well be provided with some modern fine-tuning. She follows the family philosophy in all respects: she makes something creative of the best local products.
