Just across from Amsterdam's Culture Park sits a new inititaive called De Culinaire Werkplaats. It offers diners the chance to sample eating experiences like no other with a promise to shake up a persons culinary lifestyle as soon as they enter the door.
The half restaurant, half design studio, blends the worlds of food and art with guest invited to sample the creative perspectives of food.
The work of two designers, Marjolein Wintjes and Eric Meursing, after they both changed career and were looking for new personal goals. The restaurant offers a 5 course tasting menu with new themes being worked on each day, black, flowers and emotion, are just some of the themes worked on by the collective so far.
They have also famously served there Fresh Colors line of fashion and food – made from vegetable fibers the linens were hung and dried and offered guests the chance to sample vegetable flavored material like no other.
This is a truly innovative project and one well worth a visit if you fancy taking a lesser known culinary path next time you're in Amsterdam.
