apr 12 – may 18, 2013: blooming, explore growth in 5 dishes.

spring is in the air, and very slowly nature is coming alive again. the eat’inspiration blooming is an exploration of the different aspects of growth in 5 dishes.

it starts with a seed, a bulb, a root and after some time -if the conditions are right- there is a beautiful plant or tree in full glory. blooming or flowering is one of the stages of growth. there are various types of growth, such as exponential growth or organic growth. besides a nutricious breeding ground also the environment determines whether someone or something can come to full bloom. the phenomenon of growth and blooming is not limited to plants only. also organizations, people, societies, insights, ideas, etc. develop, grow and flourish in all sorts of ways.

for the eat’inspiration blooming, we randomly selected different aspects of growth and translated these aspects into 5 different dishes (3x savourisch and 2x sweetish). so you can taste a symbiosis, come to full bloom, experience the difference between crystal growth, circle growth, and rampant growth.
