These days, more and more people are becoming aware that without bees there are no more bell peppers, raspberries or mustard. Each of those crops is only viable after pollination by a bee, and they are not the only ones! No less than three-quarters of all our vegetable crops only come into existence after pollination. As if that wasn’t enough, these brightly colored creatures are the creators of the so-called ‘nectar of the gods’: honey. With “Dinner With The Queen” organizer Gilles De Backer and chef Lieven Lootens pay tribute to the flowers and bees, especially the queen bee. You can reserve for a culinary bee experience from 17 June to 14 July on their website. Location: ‘Plukweide purfruit’ on the outskirts of East & West Flanders in Belgium: Dentergem, Oeselgem.

In 2016 we posted an article about Kever genever, the Amsterdam jenever (Dutch gin) brand. The brand wants to become the most innovative ‘jenever’ brand in the Netherlands. A first step in that direction is the introduction of the Kever 0.0% , ‘jenever’ without alcohol and therefore in line with the trend of conscious alcohol consumption. On May 10 2019, Kever started a crowdfunding campaign on the CrowdAboutNow platform. With this campaign they want to raise a minimum of € 100,000 up to a maximum of € 200,000 in order to be able to realize Kever 0.0%, but also to launch other high-profile Kever Genevers within 3 years. Meanwhile, 120% of their goal has been achieved and the crowdfunding still has 35 days to go!

In Paris, in the BHV Marais Homme on rue du Temple, Onda serves ‘une crêpe brésilienne’. This crêpe is called ‘la tapioca’ and is real Brazilian street food. ‘La tapioca’ is a ‘galette’ (a kind of savory pancake) with a velvety texture made from cassava flour. ‘La tapioca’ is vegan, gluten-free and lactose-free! You can pick this healthy snack all day at the location of the BHV (Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville) Homme. Onda is open from Tuesday to Sunday.

Nice to try if you’re going to Paris this spring!

À la minute Tapioca at Onda

Onda is a street food stand started by Elsa who discovered this Brazilian delicacy during a stay in Brazil. The last 2 years she has traveled many festivals with a pop-up stand and now she is settled at the BHV Homme. Together with her brother Sacha, she makes à la minute tapioca’s with for example smoked salmon, avocado, tomato and salad, but also a more traditional tapioca with cheddar, avocado, tomato, pickles, red onion and jalapeno sauce. The Italian version also sounds delicious with mozzarella, dried tomatoes, tomatoes, arugula and pesto! Also on the menu: ‘Paes de queijo’, a kind of ‘Gougères’ with cheese (small airy balls of bread made from cassava flour). Besides ‘la tapioca’, you can enjoy smoothies at Onda and also an açaï bowl and a smoothie bowl with blue spirulina, banana, coconut milk and orange blossom.
