A Look Back at Opening Week and Rens Kroes' Book Launch

Wowzers!! What a week we've just had. Last Wednesday 10th June was an historic day for Amsterdam Flavours. It was our first official day open and a race against the clock to get our new place at the Westergasfabriek ready on time. The long days, moments of stress and worry have paid off and we now have a magnificent space to show for it.

We opened straight away with the book launch and pop-up restaurant for Rens Kroes. We cooked and served a menu comprising recipes from her new book Powerfood 2 - van Friesland naar New York. We met the most amazing people in the last few days and the buzz and hype around our new place was phenomenal. We still need to come down to earth!

Here's a look back in pictures of everything that's happened over the past week. And what does the future hold we hear you ask? Many more exciting things!

P.S. please all feel free to visit us at our new place at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam.

Opening Le Creuset

On Tuesday 16th September, we catered the official opening of our partner, Le Creuset's, first branded store in Holland. Press and food bloggers were invited to attend, along with guest of honor, Alain Caron, who also unveiled a new range of pots that will be available from November.

In honour of Le Creuset's French heritage, we decided to serve food with a French flavour. To start, we served Gougeres and toasts with wild mushrooms and Reblochon cheese. For mains we made Boeuf Bourguignon in small Le Creuset pots and to finish, a classic tarte au citron.

You can find the store on the Heiligeweg in Amsterdam.
