The raw food movement’s popularity shows no sign of waning, with the latest restaurant, Sauvage, opening in Berlin this May.
Sauvage is said to be the first palaeolithic restaurant in Europe – possibly the world. The modern palaeo diet is based on the dietary habits of our prehistoric ancestors (but does not mimic how they ate, thankfully). The modern palaeo cook combines evolutionary science with contemporary cuisines and ancestral cooking methods.
The basic ingredients used by the kitchen include vegetables, meat, fish, eggs, oils, nuts, seeds and herbs, while grains, starches, dairy products and sugar are all omitted from the menu. All dishes have to be handmade without the aid of industrial machinery.
