The third edition of Maison d'être was SENSE OF TASTE. It was held 15 Feb 2014 in BAR Rotterdam. It was the most successful MdE thus far. Next edition is expected Sep 2014.
THE GOOD CAUSE We brought our unique experience of the senses to BAR, in order to celebrate and honor good cause "Tafelvanzeven.nl" (=tableofseven). Tafelvanzeven wants to stimulate Rotterdam's women with different cultural backgrounds to turn their love for cooking and hospitality into employment, by educating the women in cooking, catering and entrepreneurship.
THE EXPERIENCE The venue of the night was BAR, a stone's throw away from Rotterdam CS. We laid out many many tasting experiences, among which: healthy brownies/smoothes based on SUPERFOODS (prepared by "Lotta denkt Breed.nl"), chocolate-dipped grasshoppers and worm-toffees, very unique beers from a local Rotterdam brewer ("De Bebaarde Brouwer.nl"), some extraordinary wines from the Corette series to blind-taste, a plethora of dip-experiences from Morocco to India (provided by the women from Tafelvanzeven), a tasting-palette offering a contrasting food-test between the five flavors, cotton candies (sponsored by "Suikerspinservice.nl"), a crazy culinoir experience where conceptual caterers "Cateringa.nl" took over the toilets with an act including among other things edible toilet paper & tampons and "food-porn" projected on the ceilings, and last but definitely not least, the food-act "Le Chocolat Eccentric" where Ramses Draak (Everline.nl) prepared chocolate-dipped baguettes with daring toppings, such as his HOTTER THAN YOUR LOVER combination of pure chocolate with chili peppers.
