Tafelzier – a Name with Tradition

Origins of this masterful art

The word Tafelzier (German for table decoration) comes from the origins of Patisserie in the 17th century. At that time there was still no porcelain. Table and space decorations were produced by pastry bakers by means of tragant (a rubberlike plant sap from the astralgalus tree, native to Asia Minor).

As a high point at famous gluttony orgies and gala dinners in the baroque and rococo periods this craftsman’s artwork was served to guests. By using the historical concept of “Tafelzier” (German for gourmet decoration) a tradition has been brought back to life, but this time interpreted in a contemporary and modern way.
