When I read on Facebook that Sarah Britton will compose a dinner together with Restaurant De Kas in Amsterdam, I was instantly hooked! I always wanted to have dinner at De Kas plus one of my favorite food bloggers! How fantastic is that?!
The restaurant is an old greenhouse and probably one of the best locations for a restaurant I have ever been to. At De Kas they believe that food tastes best when it is prepared with the freshest, local ingredients. They grow their own vegetables, herbs and edible flowers in the greenhouse and surrounding gardens and on a farm outside Amsterdam. Everything else is supplied from other farms in the vicinity of the city. The menu changes daily according to the daily harvest and additional ingredients from the local suppliers.
For this special dinner, Sarah Britton, a Copenhagen based Canadian Holistic Nutritionist whose blog I have been following for quite a few years now, composed a dinner together with the restaurant.
The menu was fantastic! A true celebration of plant-based food. Creative, inspiring and absolutely delicious. There were two starters to share, one soup, a stunning main course and a dessert:
My favorite was the socca, a chickpea crepe, topped with an abundance of different veggies and mushrooms. The flavors were absolutely amazing. I also loved the beetroot Kombucha, which was served with the starter.
We had a wonderful evening and I was very happy to meet Sarah, who is a true inspiration, making healthy eating even more attractive.
