13 jan- 27 feb 2011: ‘t nieuwe light

2011, a new year, new opportunities and new possibilities. therefore, de culinaire werkplaats designed a kick-off menu inspired on this optimistic approach and feeling. the result: the eat.inspiration light.

the eat.inspiration light is a translation of the concept light to 5 dishes. It’s a new perspective on food & light. The menu starts with the eat.cocktail air, followed by 2 savourish  dishes dark & prism, and 2 sweetish dishes tranparency & white. As finishing touch there are two matching cocktails as well: coupe light.headed (alcoholic), and coupe free.spirit (non-alcoholic).
