june 7- july 29, 2018: experience the life and works of vincent van gogh in 5 or 7 dishes.

the eat’inspiration rising sun is a tribute to the much-discussed and eventful life and works of Vincent van Gogh, a true avant-garde artist in search of the art of the future.

an artist that consists of a very special mix of enthusiasm, unruliness, talents, honest concern for the working man and with a fascination for nature and japanese art.

an artist who is so much more than its artifacts: potatoes, sunflowers, a piece of ear and absinthe.

so join us in june and july 2018 and discover Vincent’s ideas. we also created a number of cocktails inspired by the many café visits by Vincent.

book, join us and work out for yourself if you are a Vincent or not.

march 22-june 2nd, 2018: in the mood for some flower power in 5 or 7 courses

prolonged until june 2nd, 2018.

in the mood for some flower power?

“the dutch” and flowers, tulips in particular, are often mentioned in the same breath. this special connection goes way back to the dutch golden age. during this era many new, exotic flowers and plants were introduced in the netherlands. at the peak of the golden age tulip bulbs even caused the very first speculative bubble, known as tulip mania.

today, the netherlands is often referred to as the “flower shop of the world”.  

flowers are connected to many areas of our everyday life: for instance art, craft, design, fashion, spirituality, emotion, symbolism, traditions, folklore, commerce, science, technology, botany, etc. 

for many centuries artists, artisans, botanists, gardeners, flower growers and trades men are inspired by all kinds of flowers and plants. this we have taken as the perspective for our eat’inspiration ‘flower power’.

so we would like to invite you to join us for a journey in which we explore this special relationship between “the dutch” and flowers, from flower growers to artists and designers, in 5 or 7 courses.

on may 7th, 2018 we headed to bazel, belgium, for the 2018 edition of the we’re smart world event.

think vegetables! think fruits!

here eric showcased with a cooking demonstration the motto think vegetables! think fruits! by preparing ‘fake tomatoes‘ as tomatoes are both vegetable and fruits: botanically a fruit and legally/culinary a vegetable. eric’s tomatoes with a twist consisted of a food pairing of fruit + vegetable: yellow beetroot, strawberries and pink peppers. 

awards best vegetable restaurants 2018.

after the demonstrations the winners of the 2018 award were announced by frank fol, the initiator of this event, followed by an al fresco reception where we could enjoy all kinds of amuses and a dinner at and by ‘t hofke van bazel.

we congratulate all the winners of the 2018 awards, and the dutch winner in particular: librije’s zusje.

eric was invited for this event as the restaurant section of studio de culinaire werkplaats participated in the competition ‘the best vegetable restaurant 2010-2011’, and received as the first dutch restaurant this award.

to our regret winners are not allowed to participate in the competition again. however, there are enough ways to support this initiative.

sept 18 – nov 26, 2017 on the menu: experience “the dutch + water”

‘the dutch’ and water are closely linked. for ‘the dutch’ water has even become part of their cultural identity.

to give a small impression:

water management runs in the genes of ‘the dutch’. draining their country and keeping their feet dry is a process the dutch started centuries ago and continue to do to this day.

in winter time -for instance- the dutch conquer the frozen water with their ice skates.

and … during the dutch golden age commerce was thriving because rivers and seas offered the opportunity to travel to all parts of the world, which influenced the dutch cuisine.

water inspires since centuries dutch artists, farmers, tradesmen, scientists, engineers, etc. etc. 

the eat’inspiration dutch waterworks explores in a playful way an ad random selection of water matters to showcase the evolving and interesting relationship of ‘the dutch’ with water.

watermelon

water is one of our most favourite inspirational sources, as it is an extremely versatile theme. during the last 9 years we have approached ‘water’ from various perspectives. 

this year we address water again with the eat’inspiration dutch water works. and while we were browsing through our images we stumbled upon a humble tribute to the watermelon we made various years ago. it is part of a project to showcase that a watermelon consists of a lot of healthy nutrients.

in other words … a watermelon is much more than water only

enjoy.
