COOKING WITH SEAWEED | seaweed workshop

2 September | 15-16 hour 

Je weet dat zeewier enorm gezond is, maar wat is zeewier nu precies? En hoe gebruik je dat slijmerige spul eigenlijk in de keuken?

Deze workshop is speciaal voor iedereen die meer wil weten over de basics van zeewier en wil ontdekken hoe je jouw gezondheid een boost kan geven met zeewier. We gaan op zoek naar de verschillende soorten zeewier in de Noordzee en kijken wat de verschillen zijn. Daarna gaan we gezamenlijk kokkerellen met het ‘OER’ ingrediënt zeewier. Uiteraard zullen we de workshop afsluiten met een heerlijke proeverij van zelfgemaakte zeewier snacks!

It is impossible to count the number of cultures and sub-cultures in the city of Jerusalem. This mosaic of people make it a fascinating place to any outsider and creates an immense tapestry of cuisines.

Of course, 4000 years of intense political and religious wrangling are impossible to hide in this city. It takes a giant leap of faith – but The Green Chef is happy to take it – to imagine that food will eventually bring Jerusalemites together.

Please join for dinner and explore the culinary richness of Jerusalem. As ever the food will be delicious, the wine flowing, and there will be new friends to be made.

Date: April 25
Price: € 8.00 (kids pay nothing!)
Benefits: Dinner includes a glass of wine and arabic coffee

There is a small seaside village in Okinawa, Japan, which is renowned for its logetivity. This is partly because their diet of freshly foraged foods such as seaweed.

INCREDIBLE EDIBLE | foraging workshop

The Green Chef sees foraging as an art, an ancient way to feed and sustain ourselves in a slow and graceful way. The simple act of foraging goes beyond simply putting food on the table. It opens you up to the mystery and wonderment of life. There is nothing more fulfilling than wandering around picking a bit here, a bit there, crushing, smelling, nibbling, only to return to your kitchen to prepare scrumptious food for loved ones.

Location: Meet at ‘de watertoren’ in Meyendael
Time: 14:30 (dinner starts around 18:00)

According to legend, in 2737 BC the Chinese herbalist Shen Nang was sitting under a tree, staring into space, when a leaf from a wild tea bush floated down into his cup of boiled water. In this moment, the calming ritual of drinking tea was discovered!

Today, tea comes out of machines. Tea is served in plastic cups with the tea bag still swimming around in it. We’ve largely got it wrong at the moment! Tea should be a time for gentle chat and reflection. It should provide a stop, a moment of calm. Therefore, we should embrace tea again, the ancient drink of poets, philosophers and meditators!

Location: ‘Thee aan Zee’
Costs: 15 euro including the worlds best teas!
