G2.0 – What’s in the sauce?

G2.0 – What’s in the sauce?

An exciting year is coming to an end, it should definitely be celebrated properly, right? Whether it's a cozy get-together or a fancy dinner in the center of the action, the question always arises: "What's there to eat?"

It should be special, extraordinary, but also somehow “traditional”.

There are many exciting dishes, that's not the problem. But one thing should be almost perfect: the sauce. Salty, sweet, spicy, liquid or rather creamy – if the sauce is right, it will conjure up an impressive taste experience from even the simplest dish.

Speaking of: Do you already know our G2.0 Goji Acai sauce?

Green tea? Really now? Yes! Fruity-tart taste of the Far Eastern goji berry with a subtile note of Amazon açaí fruit. Sounds like music to our ears. Here is our suggestion for a nice culinary end to 2022:

Saddle of venison with G2.0 Goji Acai sauce.
Hearty game meets exotic berries!

You need for 4 people:

1 onion
1/2 carrot
75 g celeriac
3/4 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 tbsp tomato paste
100 ml red wine
5 cherries, pitted
1 tbsp G2.0 GOJI ACAI
400 ml water
1/4 black peppercorns
1/2 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp allspice seeds
1/2 bay leaf
1/2 bark cinnamon
1 pinch of salt
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  1. Peel the onion, carrots and celery and cut into 1-2 cm cubes.
  2. Caramelize the powdered sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the vegetables, stir in the tomato paste and fry briefly. Deglaze with the wine and simmer a little. Boil water and let it cool to 80 degrees, pour hot water into the tea and let it steep for 8 minutes. Strain the tea and add it to the sauce. Let it steep for 1 hour just below the boiling point.
  3. Roast the peppercorns, coriander seeds, allspice seeds and cinnamon bark in the pan until they smell fragrant and add to the sauce with the bay leaf.
  4. Let it steep for another 20 minutes just below the boiling point. Strain through a sieve and cook with the cornstarch for 1-2 minutes until creamy. Add the cherries and chocolate and season with salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar.

Breathtaking drinks and unusual culinary specialties are a must for an unforgettable get-together.
