In 2011 we, Ngoc Duong and Olivia Wood, realized our dream of opening a small Café. It is called Katies Blue Cat and it´s right between the Berlin areas Kreuzberg and Neukölln. Since then we have been baking daily, using original English, American, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand recipes. The smell of cinnamon and butter, raspberries and coconut or almonds and chocolate wafts out the door at all times. There is always something coming out of the oven. And now we are even sending our goodies out by mail order! A few years ago, when we first had the idea for an English-American specialty café, we dreamed of a special place where english speaking travellers would feel at home, and locals would feel like they were somewhere in the wide, wide world. We dreamed of a place where good baking is a handcraft and also a passion, where very good coffee is served. Maybe our secret is the beauty of simplicity. We work with comforting recipes, that kind that mothers used to bake every day. But we put a lot of effort into making the result special. We look for the key ingredient – and then make that ingredient shine! You have to understand the recipes character, and then work to make it clearly visible.
