Tante Rikie has one more wish | Assholes, stay home!

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!

Opening – In August high end restaurant SECRET GARDEN will open at the Reguliersdwarsstraat in Amsterdam. Inspired by multidisciplinary catering establishments in London, Madrid, Dubai and Paris, SECRET GARDEN is a place where you can not only dine, but also have a great time. SECRET GARDEN is a new initiative by brothers and hospitality entrepreneurs Roy and Mike Poppes. With more than 10 years of experience in the international catering industry, they missed a real mature, internationally oriented restaurant with experience in Amsterdam. An establishment where you don’t have to go into town after dinner, because you can continue the evening with cocktails and live entertainment. SECRET GARDEN offers precisely that added value and therefore becomes a unique addition to both the restaurant and nightlife offerings in Amsterdam.

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.
