may 11, 2016: wall street journal on one-of-a-kind experiences in amsterdam


we are very pleased to share with you that de culinaire werkplaats is featured as in the travel section of the wall street journal as one of the ‘one-of-a-kind experiences in amsterdam‘ according to rico gagliano (journalist), who visited our venue twice.

this is what he writes about de culinaire werkplaats.

Devour art.

Eric Meursing and Marjolein Wintjes describe themselves as food concept designers—in other words, they play with their food in the name of art. They once crafted an edible, life-size pink wedding dress out of paper-like sheets of rhubarb-infused agar. Four nights a week, their industrial kitchen-slash-studio, De Culinaire Werkplaats (near the cultural complex of Westergasfabriek), turns into a restaurant where each dish looks like a miniature art installation. This month, the couple opens a “food-art” gallery next door, with a debut exhibit of objets created with all-black ingredients—like a sculpture of wafers made from blackberries, black currant and black-curry.
