march 8-apr 6, 2013: water, the new champagne?

water is often taken for granted, but is actually very special. water is also closely associated with the issue of scarcity and abundance. excess of water and water shortage are the inspirational perspective for the eat’inspirations water, the new champagne? a culinary adventure in 5 mouth watering dishes.

what kind of dishes will you find on your plate: a waterbomb as a sneak preview, followed by waterworks, low tide and a waterballet. we also have a piece of desert and a portion climate change. for the finishing touch we have completed this eat’inspiration with the matching cocktail “wishing well” and an aperitif “the tears of cleopatra”.

by the way, for de culinaire werkplaats water has a special meaning. in 2010 we were awarded the title best benelux vegetable restaurant 2011 with ‘n dinnerspecial of 5 water dishes, and last year we were commissioned to create 5 different waterscapes for the dutch pavilion of the world expo in south korea.

in our jubilee year we like to pay once again special attention to water being one of our most favourite inspirational concepts. march 22 it is world water day. the netherlands is hosting the international celebration of world water day. so march ideally suits for the eat’inspiration water, the new champagne. besides an eat’inspiration, we will be working in march on some small installations about water.
