Horecatrends | Tips for Culinary videos worth watching – week 13
YouTube has been a source of inspiration for spotting trends past few years. Every day, thousands of movies are uploaded with new and interesting content. We too sometimes use videos as a source of inspiration to write about. With this week again a selection of videos which Demi Poppe thinks are worth it to watch.
This week a video about the biggest Starbucks ever that opened in Tokyo and a video about the secret behind fresh apples throughout the whole year. Finally, a video about butter with extra flavor made from three different types of seaweed.
Starbucks‘ largest establishment ever opened | Starbucks Reserve™ Roastery Tokyo
Last year Starbucks opened new branches in Milan and New York and on the 28th of February the chain opened its largest store ever in Tokyo. This Reserve™ Roastery has 4 floors with the largest coffee barrel in the world from almost 17 meters high covered with ‘hammered’ copper. The design of the coffee roasting plant is based on elements from the Japanese culture. The elements include bonsai pots and copper cherry blossoms. In addition, the entire building was designed without nails inspired by the Japanese temples. Worth a visit for the architecture, the coffee, the pizza and bread by the Princi Bakery, the teas at Teavana and the drinks at the bar Arriviamo. I most certainly will go and grab a coffee in one of the Starbucks Reserve™ Roastery’s when I am in the vicinity!

Why apples are kept asleep
When I chose this video, my colleagues seriously asked me if I knew how nature works ;-). Luckily for me more young colleagues never thought about how fresh an apple is when you buy it in the summer! When I watched this video I was very surprised by the fact that apples are only harvested once a year. This is approximately around the months from August to November. Nevertheless, the apples always look very fresh in the supermarket, while in reality there is a possibility that they are already 10 months old. How is that possible? This video by Business Insider tells you more!

Seaweed butter | You butter believe it
What is France without baguette? And what is a baguette without creamy butter? In the northern region of France, in Bretagne, Jean-Yves Bordier makes the butter flavor even more special. Using three different types of seaweed, Bordier created his seaweed butter with three different types of seaweed which gives it a special salty earthiness flavour. The artisanal butters of Jean-Yves Bordier are sold in many top restaurants and I would love to try it!
