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.

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.

nov 08 – dec 28, 2013: eat’inspiration time flies…..

time flies….. when you are having fun!! time seems to be accelerating. the hours, the days, the seasons appear to fly by faster than ever before. so we feel it is a good moment to reflect on a number of milestones of the past 5 years.

but … what is a special moment, a milestone anyway? this question caused several interesting conversations at the dining table. finally, we have selected 5 projects that gave a new direction and a new dimension to our work:

  • black. september 2008 : an introduction to thepower of black and on our menu you’ll find one of our classics from our black collection.
  • water. august 2010 : water ballet , one of the dishes of our water menu which was awarded with the title the best benelux vegetable restaurant 2011.
  • fashion + design. july 2009 + november 2012 : our motto is food equals fashion. experience with upside down our interpretation of the idiosyncratic work of the dutch fashion designers viktor & rolf .
  • landscapes & architecture (2011): out of the many eat’inspirations about landscapes & architecture we decided on a dish from the eat’inspiration urban landscapes . a dish that showcases that the streets in amsterdam will never be same again.
  • shanghai. may 2012 ( launch event of drive to another beat, shanghai ): one of the ideas inspires us to this day. here already the main ingredients : transformation , black, red and the logo of bentley .

time flies is the 2nd eat’inspiration of the triptych TIME. in the beginning of 2014 you can experience the taste of the new luxury in the 3rd eat’inspiration sign of the times.
