This week, among other links to articles about the new guest chef at Gastronomixs of restaurant Under in Norway, we recently wrote about this restaurant. And George Clooney called for a boycott of hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei.

Did you ever taste black Sapote? We thought it sounds like maybe snake? Read in the article what it really is! And inspiration for avocado lovers from Texas, The Barbacado.

We’re kind of jealous at those working at offices in the UK, they can enter a contest to win a Brockmans Gin pop-up G&T bar for their Friday happy hour at the office! We hope to inspire Dutch Gin or Jenever brands to do the same!

A great example of collaboration from New York, The Republic of Booza started a collaboration series! And if you’re going to Paris, check out the L’Atelier des Lumières museum! You can walk in one of the painting of Van Gogh here!

BrewDog wants to open a hotel for beer geeks In London and they might get the MGS Sphere there in the future! Also in London: a new dining boulevard opened under the new European headquarters of Bloomberg.

Concrete proudly presents the opening of its latest hotel project, the Andaz Munich in Schwabing. Like a kaleidoscope, the Andaz hotel reflects the culture and tradition of the neighbourhood, creating a stimulating and inspiring atmosphere where guests and locals can feel at home. Weaving state-of-the-art technology and old traditions into the interior, reflecting what makes Munich unique, forming a sense of tension that can be found throughout the hotel design. The many facets of Bavarian culture run like a leitmotif through the design. This is reflected from the largest scale to the smallest details. Many icons associated with the city of Munich have been reinterpreted or abstracted as small highlights drizzled throughout the hotel, while traditional materials have been given a modern interpretation via a contemporary design language, including a ‘golden pretzel’. lees verder

Horecatrends | Tips for Culinary videos worth watching – week 14

2-4-2019

YouTube has been a source of inspiration for spotting trends past few years. Every day, thousands of movies are uploaded with new and interesting content. We too sometimes use videos as a source of inspiration to write about. With this week again a selection of videos which Demi Poppe thinks are worth it to watch.

This week a video about 2 chefs who are answering questions around cooking that have been asked via Twitter. A great idea for chefs: just answer one or two questions a week from your fans on either Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. It might engage your audience! And a video about which egg makes the best scrambled egg, either quail, duck, chicken or ostrich egg? The winner might surprise you! And a video about a water sommelier, Demi had never heard of a water sommelier? Did you?   lees verder

Europe’s first underwater restaurant ‘Under’ will welcome guests in Lindesnes, Norway. Located at the southernmost point of the Norwegian coastline, where the sea storms from the north and south meet, the project is situated at a unique confluence. Marine species flourish here in the both briny and brackish waters to produce a natural abundance in biodiversity at the site. The Snøhetta-designed restaurant also functions as a research center for marine life, providing a tribute to the wild fauna of the sea and to the rocky coastline of Norway’s southern tip. lees verder

Dexamenes Seaside Hotel is located on Kourouta beach on the western coast of the Peloponnese in Greece and it will open May 2019. The hotel has been created on the site of an abandoned winery. The derelict, industrial structures that characterize the site have been left relatively untouched since the 1920’s but Nikos Karaflos, a visionary entrepreneur-turned-hotelier changed that! The old tanks have been converted into 34 guestrooms, many of which have a private patio overlooking the sea. The design with a lot of steel, glass, concrete and timber, is led by K-Studio.
