Échiré

Have you heard of the infamous Échiré butter from western France?  It is said to be the best and most expensive butter at around EUR15 for a 250g tub.  What makes it the best is its outstandingly light and creamy taste some says.  The milk comes from the region just 50km around village Échiré hence of the same environment, climate and grazing grass.   Its production is entirely handmade and has been around for a century along with their successful fully co-operative business.  It is so famous worldwide that there is a shop in Maison du Beurre in Tokyo that only sells this butter and pastry made from it.  If you know where we can get hold of this queen of butter in Rotterdam, let us know!  Foto © Christoph Kirschbaum  26.03.2012

Retrospective

A group of faithful friends and families got together for a retrospective exhibition of late artist, David Paans. We plated up a simple grazing buffet to accompany the artist’s colourful work, a trio band and a very positive vibe. More pictures via our FB. 19.11.2017

Nike

A seasonal food still life project we’ve been working on for years. Its a continuing cycle that showcase our reinterpretation of the Old Masters. This autumn version also includes the wining pose of Nike the canary bird, couple of cross spiders, an aging bottle of Tia Maria and a stack of forgotten good reads. Much fun in co-operation with Hester Blankestijn.  Also check out our other still life attempts via Hester’s website. 01.11.2017

Its been a year since we have immersed ourselves as part of Kaapse Brouwers cooking out regularly at The Kaapse Kitchen in Fenix Food Factory.  We thank our growing team for their consistent hard work and laughter and engagment sailing along this steep learning curve.  If you are curious about what we are serving, come by this year during week 27 (04-09 July), week 39 (26 Sept – 01 Oct), week 43 (24-29 Oct) and/or week 47 (21-26 Nov) and have a taste.  We do our best to source our ingredients locally, presenting our seasonal flair and bringing in nutricious platters as organic as possible.  Here are more impressions of our last few involvement.  22.06.2017

SPR:SP15FruZOHO-PO

A painting, a photograph.  The only entity that can capture a timed moment that carries much significance of its subjects.  The Old Masters did it with flair and exclusivity.  We remake, reinterpret and intervene and it continues.  Bringing what defines a season onto a print, onto a flat exposure.  Work in progress, thoughts brewing and more to slowly come. In collaboration with Hester Blankestijn. 15.09.2015
