march 23 – juni 11, 2017: explore some dutch flower power in 5 or 7 courses

due to success prolongued until june 11, 2017.

“the dutch” have an interesting and powerful relationship with flowers.  

this special relationship goes way back to the dutch golden age. during this era the tulip bulb was introduced to the netherlands and at the peak of the dutch golden age this intriguing bulb caused the first speculative bubble ever, known as ‘tulpomania’. 

for many centuries dutch artists, botanists, gardeners, flower growers and trades men are inspired by all kinds of flowers. flowers are connected with many areas of our existence: art, craft, design, fashion, history, spirituality, emotion, symbolism, traditions, folklore, commerce, botany, etc. 

so we would like to invite you to join us for a journey in a nutshell in which we try to reveal this special relationship between the dutch and flowers, from flower growers to artists.

march 23, 2017 – jan 14, 2018: what’s cooking next?

ever nibbled on some tulips or sipped from a unique mix of dutch masters? 

we are very keen to share our upcoming dutch adventure with the world. the next months all our food, art and design activities aim at exploring and defining the so-called Dutch DNA. 

during this journey we will be addressing a selection of dutch icons and classics through eating experiences.

when & what.

from march 23, 2017 until the beginning of january 2018 you are more than welcome to participate in our journey along all kinds of dutch issues during a 4-part series of eatinspirations.

we will be creating different eat’inspirations, food narratives and eating experiences at the intersection of food, art + design which will result in a new abstract look at the netherlands, and showcases the features of the Dutch DNA in particular.

dutch icons is an ongoing research project of de culinaire werkplaats. marjolein and eric offer you through their one of a kind eating experiences a unique, abstract and contemporary view on The Netherlands and on the Dutch DNA in particular.


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.
