stilleven golden age dinner

Book your seat! Old Food Tour Dinner 23 November, Amsterdam

Eat like you're in the Golden Age! Delights from culinary historian extraordinaire Marleen Willebrands will come with side servings of stories about Dutch tradition and food’s influence on the city.

Most of us can’t imagine how exactly those before our modernity, sales and before technology, order lived in relation to something so close to the essence of life – food. Yet the city and its citizens have always been heavily influenced by food traditions. Much of this knowledge is unknown, but offers much to learn for contemporary lifestyles and cities (along with tasty treats!). For instance, what did the Dutch eat during the Golden Age? Where did the food come from, how was it stored and transported? What time was dinner?

Join us the 23rd of November and get a healthy taste of the past both in both in flavor and knowledge in this special Old Amsterdam Food Tour** extension event. Registration information below!

This Historic Dinner made with recipes from the Golden Age will be hosted together with the magnificent chefs from MOES and supported by the expertise of culinary historian Marleen Willebrands. To spice things up, each course will be paired with stories* about Dutch eating traditions and the influence of food on the city.

According to tradition, dinner will be served in the afternoon.
