West Coast Calling 

Landing in San Francisco

Seeking new adventure and experience Isabell and Christiane moved from their native Germany to San Francisco in 1996. 

"Isabell and I met in Berlin.  Instant friends with the same 'Wanderlust' nature.  Working in the industry for many years gave us the strength for a crazy idea: Introducing East Germany to the map of culinary treasures in San Francisco.  Walzwerk was born. For almost 16 years we are happy to share - We love you San Francisco and you are our home now!"

Bis hoffentlich bald, Isabell und Christiane

"Writing about myself seems more difficult than I thought, but I promise I will find someone soon who can transform my story into beautiful words.

I am as excited as you are.  :)"

Liebe Grüße, Christiane
