"It is my heart's desire to support LichtBlick Seniorenhilfe. It is up to us to look and take responsibility. It is a testimony of poverty that people who have built up our country now live in poverty among the elderly. With their low pensions they barely make ends meet and have to save important purchases from their mouths. The last resort is often to go to the blackboard. A gait that is often difficult for our health, which is associated with long queues and, above all, shame. But eating is about more than just food, it's about dignity. One initiative that has recognized this is LichtBlick Seniorenhilfe. Among other things, the association issues shopping vouchers to pensioners in need. With it they can buy in the supermarket in their proximity, decide themselves, what they would like to eat and come among humans."

Witzigmann & Freunde EINFACH GENIESSEN !

Kochen zum kleinen Preis, Ein Lichtblick für jeden Tag!

Witzigmanns Kreationen sind eigens für jene bedürftigen Menschen gedacht, die gesund leben wollen bis ins hohe Alter hinein.Dieses Buch entstand aus Respekt. Aus Respekt vor einer Generation, der wir viel zu Verdanken haben. Einer Generation, die beim Essen oft mit dem Allernötigsten auskommen musste und für die Hunger kein Fremdwort war. Es ist die Kriegs- und Nachkriegsgeneration, die den Grundstein dazu gelegt hat, dass es uns gut geht.

Eckart Witzigmann:„Alle Gerichte sollen unkompliziert sein, aber gleichzeitig mit jenem raffinierten Pfiff überraschen, der wie das Salz in der Suppe ist.“

Inspiriert wurde dies durch Lydia Staltner, Vorsitzende des Vereins Lichtblick Seniorenhilfe. Das verblüffende Ergebnis: Witzigmann und Freunde zeigen, dass Kochen gerade mit kleinem Geldbeutel "spitze" ist.

 

 

 

Top Chefs for Africa | Karlheinz Böhm Foundation

The beginning 

As early as autumn 2008, chef Eckart Witzigmann and the renowned delicatessen and truffle retailer Ralf Bos called on restaurateurs throughout Germany to take part in individual campaigns for "top chefs for Africa". Within only 100 days, an entire school was financed. 

"Top chefs have a big heart, which is why we want to jointly support educational projects by people for people over the long term.
