Last month Cee Cee’s Sven Hausherr invited us round for a Saturday morning cooking session in his MYKILOS-designed kitchen at his Berlin home. Sven decided to make one of his favourite weekend dishes, staggering fluffy ricotta pancakes, topped with pomegranate, hazelnuts and homemade maple-pear compote. And we certainly had the pleasure of devouring it!
