SAVE MORE BREAD! | ‘De Tweede Jeugd’ is even more fanatic in trying to avoid bread waste

13-8-2018

Every single day, more than 400.000 loafs of bread are being thrown away. At ‘De Tweede Jeugd’ (the Second Youth) they think that this is a big waste! That’s why they try to save as much bread as they can, by making the best Supertostis you’ve ever tasted! In October 2016 Manuel and Benjamin opened their first ‘Bread outlet’ at the Jan Evertsenstraat in Amsterdam. Both have been chefs and want to fight food waste. Now they have their own Tostibar at the NDSM-wharf where they sell their Supertosti’s and Crostini. The people from Amsterdam can order their tosti’s at twenty retailers in the city. In total they already saved about 14.000 loafs of bread by now. Their ambition is to give a second life to all leftover bread from the 11 stores of bakery chain BBROOD by the end of 2018. That’s why they started their crowdfunding. lees verder

After his successful pop up at Hotel Café Royal in 2016, the famed chef Albert Adrià– who built a gastronomic revolution alongside his brother, Ferran, at the legendary Michelin three-star elBulli – returns to London to launch a permanent site, ‘Cakes and Bubbles’, this November. Adrià, who was voted The World’s Best Pastry Chef by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2015, runs an empire of restaurants which range from the perpetually sold-out avant-garde tapas bar Tickets, to Hoja Santa, a modern Mexican table that was awarded a star in the 2016 Michelin guide, and his lauded latest venture, Enigma. Cakes & Bubbles marks Adrià’s first bricks and mortar establishment outside Spain. Adrià comments “I believe London is the capital of the world, and I’m looking forward to this new challenge. It’s a project that excites me as a pastry chef – I’ve never opened anything specifically related to the sweet world. Our approach and menu will be a cross between the classical and contemporary. I am looking forward to bringing this concept to Hotel Café Royal, London’s only modern grand hotel and the place I feel I belong whilst in the city”.
