This week a video about Chef Miro Uskokovic at the Gramercy Tavern who uses alternative sugars and he is making a delicious looking ‘ice cream sundae’ with these sugars. Next to that a video about a special collaboration between Airbnb and the Louvre museum and finally a video about drones delivering coffee in Australia. lees verder

We too sometimes use videos as a source of inspiration to write about. With this week again a selection of videos based upon April fools jokes which Demi Poppe thinks are worth it to watch.

This week a couple of April fools jokes in the hospitality & leisure world. Amongst them a video of the Dutch amusement park, Duinrell. They launched the Hyperkik, a hyperloop system with which you can visit more than forty attractions within one hour!  A similar joke was the MULTIcoaster from Thyssenkrupp, but this was more a kind of elevator. And the cutest Starbucks video ever, for April fools day they introduced Pupbucks, a Starbucks branch for dogs! lees verder

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.

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

EARTH Water, the fairest water producer in the Netherlands, is taking a pioneering step in the sustainability of product packaging. By adding the new plant-based cap, the packaging material of the 33cl cardboard packaging is now 100% reusable. According to founder Henk Witteveen, this new bottle is the replacement for all plastic bottles. He says: “Twelve years ago, EARTH was the first producer to use cardboard as packaging material for mineral water. Now we are continuing the same innovative line with this plant-based cap in collaboration with Tetra Pak. We already received a huge number of requests from many catering associations for an alternative to the plastic bottle.” lees verder
