Svenja Magazzu - Testimony of a former employee
I worked for Ariana between 2018 and 2019.
In this time she introduced me to the french culinary kitchen. She was Chef in the restaurant of the French Embassy and ran a catering service in which both she always took care that the products were fresh and of good quality.
The variety of meals was huge that even vegan or vegetarian people booked her for their events and parties. Beside that she also has a big knowledge of french wines which she used to combine with the meals she offered. Ariana was always motivated and working hard on new creative ideas every day. For her saying "it's not possible" did not exist - she constantly tried to make customers happy.
As my boss she taught me a lot how to lead a professional catering event and how to do an excellent service. Although she was busy all the time, she was always there for her team and solved problems as good as she could.
I am really glad I was part of her journey for a while and I wish her all the best for her future, she deserves it.
We value honesty, transparency and loyalty with clients, employees and partners.
Whether it be in the kitchen, or about ideas, creativity flirts with resilience in Ariana Cook.
There is no interaction in our business that works without respecting human beings.
The existential pillar of the company is obviously passion for the profession.
Clients are always treated with the best care, attention and conscientiousness.
Our environmental impact is carefully taken into consideration in decision-making processes. The company structure is therefore thought to have a positive impact to start the transitioning.

Ariana Cook was first born from passion for cooking and boldness as a newbie in Berlin. Indeed, Ariana first started by being a Private Cheffe at people homes. Here is a glimpse of her culinary services on Vivre à Berlin.
In 2017, the adventure began in the restaurant of the French Embassy with three other associates : Clément - Kitchen Chef, Doriane - Pastry Chef, and Freddy - Administration manager. In the embassy, we were offering daily-changing menus for the agents and providing catering services for public events. Over 3 years, we have grown our reputation as French Caterers throughout Berlin. Having clients such as state institutions including the Canadian Embassy, and private corporations like The Family, Mindspace, The Drivery & Tier. We also enjoyed taking care of weddings and other personal events!
As we all know, 2020 has strongly affected the event sector... Event cancellations and closure of our restaurant L'Ambasserie has led to drastic changes in our workforce. During the hardest times, we have nevertheless survived by delivering homemade meals and groceries around Berlin. Ultimately, we terminated our partnership with the French Embassy. Resilience having been our main asset, Ariana Cook is still alive!
We now provide support for gastronomy professionals who want to grow their business and build a strong team. We aim at selecting talents carefully upon the mission given. Our strong background enables us to work with and be trusted by our clients.

After 5 years of working an office job in both Israel and Germany, Hadas decided to follow her true passion inherited from her grand’ma – food. She started working in the professional kitchen of Shishi in Berlin, and learned from experienced chefs during two years.
These days she is very happy to be focusing on great fresh products from the Atlantic sea, as well as getting managerial skills. She loves learning and discovering methods of treating, cooking and, at the end, eating a good fish or sea food.
Cashier, Fish specialist
Yves-Marie has a wide background in luxury hospitality. He worked for the Four Seasons Hôtel George V and the Plaza Athénée, two Parisians Palaces, the Dukes Hotel in London, and Hyatt properties and sales offices in Paris and Berlin. He has strong sales skills, first learned in a business school, and then more in-depth in the MICE sector with Hyatt.
His enthusiasm surely comes from his joy to be surrounded by passionate people who love to keep know-how lively, as well as make new encounters and build relationships. His warm heart, also considering his commitment to the Oxfam associative, makes him a great person to team up with!
