meet sanne muiser, een nieuw gezicht, een nieuwe samenwerking

in march we welcomed a new face aboard. please meet sanne muiser and learn something about her:

hello my name is sanne muiser.

i’m a graduating student of the design academy eindhoven, department man and wellbeing.

i like to celebrate, maybe we all do… and trough the years at the academy i realized that a good celebration comes back at your senses. the way your senses react at a place, circumstance, on food etc. the way we taste, for instance.

this spring period i’ll collaborate for my graduation with De Culinaire Werkplaats to create a celebration of tasting. we will work together on cutlery and food so they will connect with each other. tongue, lips, nose, eyes will be teased and sincere food will be tasted.


Thank you for visiting us!

Unfortunately De Culinaire Werkplaats is closed permanently.

Sometime next year we will be publishing a book about this unique place.
