‘Watt’n Blick’ is the name of the food concept of two young entrepreneurs from Norddeich, their name can be translated as ‘What a view’ and that is because their guests can enjoy a unique North Sea panorama. Because Watt’n Blick proves what seemed impossible until now: that gastronomy can be reconciled with a natural World Heritage Site and operated in a high-water area. The seaworthy and semi-mobile bistro in the QUB® container is the first on the seaward side of the dike in Germany.

The ‘Zwarte Cross’ is a famous festival in the East of the Netherlands which will take place from July 14 untill the 17th. “A Zwarte Cross (Black Cross) with zero anti-social incidents, I would really consider that a nice farewell gift!” That was Tante Rikie’s (Auntie Rikie’s) response when asked if she had any wishes for her 25th (and last!) year as festival director. Tante Rikie and her organization almost have a perfect score concerning  good atmosphere at the unique festival, but there are still some visitors who just do not understand the festival and the hospitality of the Achterhoek region. There is always a small group of assholes (on the 229,500 visitors) responsible for vandalism, discrimination and (sexually) violent behavior. Therefore, now a call for this minority: Sell your ticket on TicketSwap and stay home!

And this title is true! Our colleagues who had already tasted it at festivals were jealous of the colleague, a real meat lover, who got to taste it at the opening! She now has Karma Kebab cravings as well!

Maybe you already knew them from one of the many festivals (Lowlands, Mistery Land, Into the Great Wide Open) where they satisfied your kebab cravings. Because entirely made from grain and celeriac, Karma Kebab still makes even the hardcore carnivore salivate. Now it is time for the next step for the successful, plant-based kebab brand: thanks to initiators Pascal Labrie, Marcel van der Heijden, Hidde Stolwijk and Ivo van der Pauw, the former bicycle depot on the Kanaalweg in Utrecht will be given a new lease of life.

CRAFT, the trade association for independent breweries in the Netherlands, is making a documentary and a new contemporary beer with a group of brewers, historians and TV chef Perry de Man. What kind of beer was in the glass in Rembrandt’s painting “The prodigal son in an inn” from 1635? Rembrandt’s beer is the starting point of the new documentary series ‘In search of taste’. In this series, beer brewers, art and beer historians, and culinary all-rounder Perry de Man (DJ, chef, De Toko Rotterdam, Falafval, 24Kitchen) not only go in search of the taste of Rembrandt’s beer back then, but they also show how they managed to brew the beer in the painting with the taste of today.

Who doesn’t like a good snack from time to time? That goes for most people, of course, including top chefs. Behind the scenes, they have always created the most delicious simple dishes and snacks for themselves and their loved ones. A few years ago, the first chefs came to the realization that many more people would like to taste this. Like chef Gavin Kaysen (*) who already served a late night greasy spoon at the bar in his first restaurant Spoon and Stable years ago, New York’s favorite chef David Chang (**) who started his own fried chicken brand, Chef Schilo van Coevorden of restaurant Taiko (*) in the Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam who in collaboration with Febo served the limited edition ‘langoustine frikandel’ or the Valuas croquettes and bitterballen of chef Eric Swaghoven which he has been selling since 2004. These chefs already set this trend back then, this article will continue after a few of these examples of “snackization” of the culinary world where we discuss the inspiration and initiatives that the corona period brought us.
