ode aan de truffelaardappel

look at this tribute to the vitelotte noir.

one of the signatures of de culinaire werkplaats is to approach the plate of the future using the inspirational concept black. it is also the first inspirational theme when de culinaire werkplaats introduced itself to the world.

up till now we have found approximately 62 black vegetal ingredients. but … the truffle potato is one of our favorites. this potato is also  known as vitelotte noir, négresse or truffe de chine. at a small scale this potato is produced in the netherlands.

proef de kleurrijke toekomst

taste the colourful future

october 11, 2010 during food professional day, part of the food4you festival, de culinaire werkplaats has presented  a possible approach on the plate of + for the future with:

  • an installation of edible paper of fruits, vegetables, and herbs;
  • 7 colours of vegetable and fruits spreads;
  • dessert bonbons: black rice in handmade strawberry paper.

according to marjolein wintjes and eric meursing vegetables, fruits and specialty grains will be starring at the plate of + for the future. to eat varied means to eat as many as different colours of fruits and vegetables.

in other word, we are facing a colourful future. 
de culinaire werkplaats has created in 2009 the concept of fresh colours, in which colours are interpreted as energy that influence your well being. during food professional day de culinaire werkplaats presented some new tastes and introduced two new colours.
