Snails: streetfood in Marrakech

Where and what to eat in Marrakech?

Visiting Marrakech without trying out some of their wonderful flavors, herbs and local specialties is a shame. This is one of the most exciting cities when it comes to authentic traditional food, that is an important inspiration for chefs all over te world. Food is sold and eaten in the streets around and in the souks. You have to get used to it, especially the lack of cooling can be an appetite killer. The habit of selling one product in large quantities is what we know as ‘mono-choice’ retail or nega choice offers. Trendsetting in Europe, a tradition over here. Also the fact that the same products are sold all in the same street. Looking for olives, check out the street where all fresh olives are sold. Go to the one where the locals buy, an ado taste some upfront, before you buy. Not only smart but your food discovery ets more excited. Once you understand how it works, you can start to enjoy the amazing smell of all the dried herbs, the huge piles …

An Instagram look back at 2014, part 1 FOOD.

Peas with goat cheese snow at Souvenir in Ieper. 2015 has kicked off, but it happens these days that I think back about the things that were great last year. What better than have a scroll trough all my Instagram posts of 2014 and take a trip trough memory lane…. I must admit, looking at these moments, it was a good year. Why not share the best of my Instagram memories? I went trough all the great trips I made last year, the restaurants I visited, the wonderful work collaborations and the unforgettable art shows and exhibitions I went to. Here they are. It’s a selection, a best of.

Inside INSIDE, part one.

You all know by now my love for the ‚unbeatable’ museum of Modern Art in Paris Palais De Tokyo. Every time we visit, it grabs me be surprise, it moves me, it turns certainties upside-down. This exhibition, opened October 20 th, is _again _nothing less than fantastic. 30 artists, gathered together by curators Jean de Loisy, Daria de Beauvais, Katell Jaffrès around one mutual theme, all experimenting and stretching the given boundary ‚INSIDE’ it’s own expression and interpretation. Let me take you inside, so you block some time in your agenda to check this one out, before it is too late.
