I was invited for a really cool event that took place yesterday: The Grand Blogger Dinner. It was organized by Mr Experience Creators and took place at the five star Conservatorium Hotel in Amsterdam.
We got really spoiled with delicious food! In this blog post I’ll tell you all about what we had, with pictures of course!
We started with a Mojito Mocktail from Finley
outside and then we went upstairs for a 6 course dinner.
We were seated in a private event room on two long tables.
Each dish was prepared by another chef and served with paired wine, beer and water. And for me all the dishes were made vegetarian.
I started with this risotto with sweet peppers and a tomato crunch crust, it was made with Verstegen
spices and sauces.
The second course was an Asian veggie pancake. This vegan dish made with Chinese rice paper filled with tofu, kimchi and wakame puree. It was flavored with the new Conimex Black spices and sauces.
After that we had Mexican tostadas from La Morena
with pulled mushrooms. One had a mango-avocado salsa and the other one was topped with feta and coriander (cilantro).
The fourth course was all about cheese. The Klaverkaas
cream was served with a rye granola and elderflower pearls.This dish was made by Onno Kokmeijer, chef at the two star Michelin restaurant Ciel Blue in the Okura hotel in Amsterdam
The main dish was build around celeriac and had a very original side dish: a mini Kesbeke
piccalilly ice cream cone! The dish was created by Luc Kusters, chef at Michelin star restaurant Bolenius in Amsterdam.
The dessert was a real show stopper! Look at this beautiful cherry blossom tree made of chocolate that was filled with cherry mousse. It was made by Gino Gebhard, executive pastry chef at the Conservatorium hotel. It reminded me of my trip to Japan
when we went to a Cherry Blossom Festival!
