Horecatrends | Tips for Culinary videos worth watching – week 21


YouTube has been a source of inspiration for spotting trends the 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 3 videos which our colleague Vera Rauwerda thinks are worth watching.

This week videos about a group of Filipino men, they collect bird nests from caves and make soup from them. And a video about the traditional olive oil from Italy and how this is made. Finally, a video about several types of fruit and vegetables that you probably haven’t heard of before!

A dangerous soup | Caviar of the caves

The men in this video are from the Philippines and risk their lives every day to collect nests from a certain type of bird. It’s called ‘caviar of the caves’ and restaurants make the famous and expensive ‘bird nests’- soup from it. The work is very dangerous because these nests are located in small caves. The role of a ‘nest gatherer’ is passed on from generation to generation. That’s why many Philippines see this work as an honor, even though it’s dangerous.
