It has been a while! So much has happened during the last year with my new cookbook coming out, the secret pop-up restaurants, my new Chef’s Table, a book tour through the Netherlands and my weekly Caribbean cooking classes. Oh my. It’s about time I give you guys a little update. Let me get started with exciting news about my upcoming cooking holiday.
From September 29th to October 5th I am hosting a special cooking week on Curaçao. I will share my passion for the Caribbean kitchen during a culinary week where cooking, eating and exploring are key. The program is filled with Caribbean cooking classes, culinary hotspots, plantation visits and experiencing island life off the beaten tourist track.
Apart from its crystal-clear waters and white sandy beaches, the island offers a rich culinary experience. The Caribbean kitchen is a beautiful melting pot of different cultures. The island, with her rich historic past and different cultures, serves as an amazing platform to explore the Caribbean cuisine. Classic dishes transmit a part of history and keep traditions alive. Next to the authentic Caribbean cuisine, a culinary revolution is arising which gives a modern twist to traditional Caribbean dishes by using new techniques on centuries old recipes. Also, in line with the worldwide trend, there is an upcoming demand for local produce. This calls for young entrepreneurs entering the culinary market with sustainable local products. All in all, it’s a great time for any travel foodie to discover the Caribbean kitchen!
I have a few spots available for the upcoming one starting on September 29th. The next cooking holiday is scheduled for February 2020. Let me know in case you are interested and I’ll be happy to send you more info!
