dutch masters & master pieces

no-fingerprints by de culinaire werkplaats

in search of excellence is the 2nd eat’inspiration of our project ‘dutch icons revisited‘. on the image: no fingerprints.

no fingerprints is a tribute to a the dutch master burglar Aage Meinesz (aage m.), well known in the 70ties for his well prepared bank robberies using a thermal lance. at the end he was caught, but managed to escape. and… to this day the world is figuring out how he managed to do this.

the eat’inspiration ‘in search of excellence’ is the 2nd eat’inspiration of our project ‘dutch icons revisited‘.

the inspirational theme ‘dutch masters’ was triggered by our project during museums at night amsterdam at the van gogh museum.
the notion ‘master’ refers for us to all kinds of talents, skills and types of excellence. so for this eat’inspiration we selected 5 different expertises.
so for this eat’inspiration we selected 5 different dutch master talents. the eat’inspiration starts with an eat’cocktail inspired by a dutch master burglar, aage m. the other masters we addressed: rembrandt van rijn (painter), rem koolhaas (architecture), iris van herpen (fashion design), marcel wanders (product design).

portfolio: eat’inspiration amsterdamned?

in march and april 2014 we explored our love-hate relationship with amsterdam, part of our amsterdam 2014 project. we expressed with the following dishes our “highlights” of amsterdam:

  • museum square,
  • gay parade,
  • zeedijk (see image),
  • tuschinski (movie theatre),
  • amsterdam’s coffeeshops.

on the image you’ll see one of the impressions we created of the zeedijk. this dish is inspired by the rich history of the zeedijk, the main street of amsterdam’s china town, and part of the maritime district. so the choice of ingredients, the colours, the taste and textures, the shape are triggered by both china and the see, the meaning of the zeedijk (sea dike), and the fact this street is situated next to the red light district.
