In the fall of 2007, during a visit at the Cologne Chocolate Museum, the decision was made to found a kitchen museum with integrated school kitchen. All exhibits are to be seen in contemporary history and scenery are demonstrated in use. The corresponding country-specific specialties can be sampled immediately.

To address this task, the FIRE BAR was handed over to a successor in February 2008. Until the opening of the WORLD OF KITCHEN - MUSEUM the time was used to clean the existing collection, and constantly re-consigned exhibits, to photograph, to inventory and catalog.

In December 2009, nine members of WOK - World of Kitchen founded e club, which will assume the responsibility to provide young people with the culture of food preparation. This nonprofit organization promotes in his school and teaching kitchen, with money from donations and revenue from nutrition education classes.

The balance of the first two years: over 300 school cooking classes with over 6000 children and young people have been in the kitchen by teaching Museum.

For 2013, plans to Carl Werner Möller - Hof zum Berge a foundation to improve the environment for the education and training kitchen, and all exhibits must be secured in the long future.
