A meal that is tailored to your DNA? It might sound like complicated and overly remote but this is changing: ultra-personalized food or eating exactly what your body needs! Vita Mojo in London is the first take-away restaurant that offers these meals. In addition, we spotted several other providers that are working on food based on your DNA, examples of Nestlé and of a DNA company in America that works with Amazon to deliver personalized meals at home.

We would like to taste the meals of Vita Mojo … however, handing over your DNA sample to third parties? Your DNA sample is pretty much the only thing that’s really ‘yours’ nowadays. Would you do it? lees verder

At the beginning of October, our colleagues from Van Spronsen & Partners hospitality consultancy,  published their sector research ‘De hostel in beeld’ (published only in Dutch). This publication shows that the youth hostel image has been stuck to the hostels for years, it’s now changing partly thanks to the newer, contemporary trendy concepts. Nowadays, hostels also profile themselves partly as hotels, with less large dormitories and more private rooms. This ensures a separation in different types of hostels: the classic youth hostel, budget hostels and boutique, design hostels. A nice example of a hostel where it is not just about the overnight stay is the Wellness Hostel 4000 & Aqua Allalin in Saas Fee, Switzerland. And in 2020 a second Wellness hostel will open in Laax, Wellness hostel 3000 & Aua Grava. lees verder

The Dessert Bar in New York City | A sushi bar for sweet tooths

18-10-2018

It’s a bit long the video above, but one foodies really have to check out! Besides the fact that it’s a professional video it also shows the ambition of London born culinary expert Rory Macdonald. Since March 2017, Rory Macdonald has opened Flatiron shop Patisserie Chanson. It’s a higher-end pastry shop or as they say themselves, “a patisserie by day and a dessert bar by night”. But guests can still regularly stop by for a breakfast pastry, a quick lunch, or even an afternoon tea. The Dessert Bar is an all-sweets tasting-menu restaurant in the shop’s lower floor. Another must visit spot in NYC for foodies and sweet tooths. lees verder
