portfolio: eat’inspiration amsterdamned?

in march and april 2014 we explored our love-hate relationship with amsterdam, part of our amsterdam 2014 project. we expressed with the following dishes our “highlights” of amsterdam:

  • museum square,
  • gay parade,
  • zeedijk (see image),
  • tuschinski (movie theatre),
  • amsterdam’s coffeeshops.

on the image you’ll see one of the impressions we created of theĀ zeedijk. this dish is inspired by the rich history of the zeedijk, the main street of amsterdam’s china town, and part of the maritime district. so the choice of ingredients, the colours, the taste and textures, the shape are triggered by both china and the see, the meaning of theĀ zeedijk (sea dike), and the fact this street is situated next to the red light district.


ongoing project: onion power.

a photography project by marjolein to showcase the humble, but versatile onion (health, culinary, natural dyeing). hereafter a small glimpse of this project.
