may 11, 2016: wall street journal on one-of-a-kind experiences in amsterdam


we are very pleased to share with you that de culinaire werkplaats is featured as in the travel section of the wall street journal as one of the ‘one-of-a-kind experiences in amsterdam‘ according to rico gagliano (journalist), who visited our venue twice.

this is what he writes about de culinaire werkplaats.

Devour art.

Eric Meursing and Marjolein Wintjes describe themselves as food concept designers—in other words, they play with their food in the name of art. They once crafted an edible, life-size pink wedding dress out of paper-like sheets of rhubarb-infused agar. Four nights a week, their industrial kitchen-slash-studio, De Culinaire Werkplaats (near the cultural complex of Westergasfabriek), turns into a restaurant where each dish looks like a miniature art installation. This month, the couple opens a “food-art” gallery next door, with a debut exhibit of objets created with all-black ingredients—like a sculpture of wafers made from blackberries, black currant and black-curry.

press review: amsterdam gourmet speeddating by

wheatfield with reaper by vincent van gogh

wheatfield with reaper by vincent van gogh

In september 2015 we have received a group of international culinary journalists for a drink and some bites. At that very moment we were running the eating experience Vincent van Gogh.

Wolfgang Grüner of the online german culinary magazine was one of the participating journalists. On november 3, 2015 he shared his experiences online in a report about amsterdam. De culinaire werkplaats was the last spot of this amsterdam gourmet speeddating trip.

Letzte Station am Nachmittag ist „The Culinaire Werkplaats“ in der Fannius Scholtenstraat 10, ein Platz für höchst interessante und ungewöhnliche Experimente im Nahrungsmittelbereich. Das Design-Studio für Essen und Trinken von Marjolein Wintjes und Eric Meursing sucht und präsentiert neue Konzepte, ungewöhnliche Geschmacksvariationen, sie finden andere Präsentationsformen, experimentieren mit der Vereinbarkeit eigentlich gegensätzlicher Dinge und scheuen dabei nicht starke Kontraste. Besonderer Wert bei den Essensexperimenten wird auf fairen Handel, Umweltverträglichkeit, Bioprodukte und Nachhaltigkeit gelegt. Bei all den Inspirationen steht natürlich auch die Suche nach dem guten Geschmack im Vordergrund. Das probiere ich gleich aus und bekomme einen Teller mit gedämpften Artischocken, umgeben von Heu-Fäden mit Kürbiskernöl, dazu flaches Brot aus Kartoffeln und Weizen, richtig lecker. Am Präsentationstisch wird gewerkelt, auf weißen Steinen sammeln sich Rollen aus Kürbis und Sushi-Reis mit Gurken, Bällchen aus weißen Bohnen mit Gewürzen und Blüten, umgeben von allerlei Kräutern, Salaten, Sprossern und anderen Zutaten. Ein wunderschönes Bild, alles essbar, außer den Steinen, zum Teil recht ungewöhnlich im Geschmack, hervorragend. Einige Tage in der Woche öffnet das Studio sich dem Publikum und man kann die Experimente essen und trinken. Ich diskutiere noch lange mit Eric, aber irgendwann bringt mich dann das Taxi zurück zum Hotel.
