portfolio: eat’inspiration time flies…

the eat’inspiration time flies … (november-december 2013) is the 2nd of the 3 part series TIME, in which time is the central focus of our exploration.

time flies… in particular in 2013 time seems to be accelerating. the hours, the days, the seasons appear to fly by faster than ever before. it feels as if we started de culinaire werkplaats yesterday.  so we think it is a good moment to reflect on a number of milestones of the past 5 years. the month november and december of each year are the perfect moments to reflect. so a great opportunity to showcase some of our key milestones in 5 dishes.

but…. what are the milestones?

from our point of view not our successes, the best eat’inspirations, concepts or our best food items.  no, the key milestones are the 5 food moments and themes gave our projects a new dimension or our signatures.

so the following themes/concepts were to be found on the menu: black, food = fashion, landscapes & architecture, water, and transformation. all dishes were presented with a new twist, as time brings new insights.

by the way, ont the image the dish upside down inspired by the one of a kind perspective of the dutch fashion design couple viktor & rolf and their perfume flower bomb.

 

sept 27 – oct 31, 2013: just in time

poster of eat'inspiration just in time by de culinaire werkplaats amsterdam

(prolonged until november 2nd, 2013)

experiencing an eternal lack of time? always meeting your deadlines at the last minute? does time always trouble you, even in the kitchen?  in that case the eat’inspiration just in time is certainly a must-do for you.

food and time are linked in very many ways. time is a huge inspirational source. on friday september 27, 2013 you can enjoy the kick off of just in time, the 1st eat’inspiration of the triptych TIMEjust in time is for the both of us a personal theme. as most of the time eric starts to create the menu …. at the last minute and puts marjolein’s agenda regularly under a lot of pressure. just in time is not only a way of organizing things, but it is a social theme as well. many believe it is 5 to 12, that we are running out of time. and if we do not change it might be too late for the world.

so …. the perspective of just in time is quite interesting, and therefore it is the theme of the 1st eating experience of the 3 part series TIME. we make you taste rhythm in many different ways. the dish t.time is all about experiencing the moment, about one life-one moment. thereafter you may nibble on the question: too late?. of course we’ll put something under pressure on your dinner.plate. and last but not least we introduce to you the phenomenon of clock.wise eating.

an eat’inspiration

  • consists of 5 theme based dishes: 3 times savourish and 2 times sweetish. every eat’inspiration is preceded by a sneak preview: flatbread with a topping that reveals something of the eat’inspiration.
