The Art of Dining. Special food for exceptional days. Every year so far, Prof. Valentin Rothmaler has had dinner together with the academy’s participants and some guests on the rooftop terrace of the faculty building. This course gives everybody the chance to cook and eat together while enjoying a fine view over the Hanseatic City of Wismar.
