portfolio. water, the new champagne?

de culinaire werkplaats has a very special relation with water. our first five water dishes, which we presented in august 2010, were awarded with the best benelux restaurant in 2011. we work on the dinnerplate of the future and water has a crucial part in the production and the preparation of foods. so if you eat, you consume directly and indirectly lots of water.

on march 22 it’s always world water day, so march is clearly a suitable time for the water issues we address with the eat’inspiration water, the new champagne?

water. seems in the netherlands often to be taken for granted. you only have to open your tap and you have gallons of clean drinking water at your disposal. this is not the case all over the world

the perspective. for the eat’inspiration water, the new champagne? we explore the issue of water scarcity and excess of water. and this perspective is the starting point to create five different dishes and several installations that expose the role of water in our lives in a playful way.

the dishes. the names of some dishes will sound familiar, but we approached the concepts from a new perspective. as the sneak preview we presented flatbread with “fake” water bombs. on the menu: a winter version of our interpretation of waterworks, the beach at low tide, a water.ballet, a piece of desert and a free interpretation of the climate change.

the images of the dishes, the explanation of the various layers of dishes and installations will be part of our book, which we are making right now.
