In June, the very first covered ‘jeu de boules’ bar in Rotterdam North opens its doors: ‘Mooie Boules’ (Beautiful Boules). The old, characteristic metal factory in the upcoming ZOHO quarter in Rotterdam will be transformed into a French village square. Local restaurants (the names of which are not yet disclosed), will serve their signature dishes and at the bar a wide range of wine, specialty and local beers will be available. All this in combination with a game of ‘jeu de boules’. The location in Rotterdam opens on Vijverhofstraat 45 in Rotterdam-North in June. It seems like the Dutch love to play the famous French game!

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!

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

Winnow  launched on Friday 22 of march its new AI-enabled product, Winnow Vision, to revolutionize food management in commercial kitchens for the benefit of both businesses and future generations. Using a camera, a set of smart scales and the same type of machine learning technology found in autonomous vehicles, Winnow Vision ‘learns’ to recognise different foods being thrown in the bin and calculates the financial and environment cost of this discarded food to commercial kitchens. Businesses and chefs can then adjust their food purchasing decisions accordingly, reducing their spending and tackling a fundamental problem of food waste: overproduction.

Helping hospitality businesses to reduce the issue of food waste is in the DNA of Winnow. They are driven as a team to tackle food waste and have a clear vision of how to do it. They are building a future kitchen that is highly efficient, sustainable and ensures that food ends up where it is supposed to. lees verder
