14-15-16 sept: smaakexplosies 2012 – a sneak preview

on a very, very hot day in july, eric and i went to the hembrug area in zaandam, near amsterdam, a former military and ammunition site. we were curious to find out which building the team of smaakexplosies had in mind for us this year.
just like, in 2009, we were struck again by the mysterious and inspiring environment where this festival is located. et voilà, see above the building for our contribution this year. a week ago jiske walstra, one of the two festival organizers, gave us a sneak preview by e-mail, but it didn’t match the real thing. in reality, the building is breathtaking.

taste explosions 2012: ‘the story of taste’

smaakexplosies is a festival with & about food, exciting food, stimulating food, healthy eating, eating with humor and edible art. but ………there is much more than food only ……..
you can also enjoy music, street theater, art, workshops, listen to tasty stories, look into the kitchen of various museums from northern holland and discover the very special environment and setting.
the 2012, and fourth edition of smaakexplosies takes place at the hembrug area of zaandam on september 14, 15 & 16. this year’s theme is ‘the story of taste’

our contribution

in 2009, the contribution of de culinaire werkplaats was ‘zijbakt.instilte’ (she bakes in silence), an exhibition of emotion.bread, breads with a personal story about emotional moments in life. right now we are working on this year’s contribution, which we will announce soon.
 

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.
