Cooking classes with Rüdiger Mehlgarten

Rüdiger Mehlgarten cooks as a chef in the restaurant WALDWERK in Northeim, about 25 km from Göttingen. His inspiration is the nature and the forest on the doorstep. For him, cooking means creating an experience for you. It also means dealing with the product itself, the origin and the producer – most of whom he knows personally by name. As much as possible, 'Rudi' exclusively uses regional and seasonal products at WALDWERK and during your cooking class in Göttingen.
