Thanksgiving With Lauren Millsand the American Baking Company
In these times of ever growing nationalism we took our rebellion against food waste and directed it at breaking down national borders. We introduced a real American feast at our Over Datum Eetclub. Our chefs and guests, coming from all over the globe said thanks, merci and dankjewel and had a deliciously expired dinner.
Lauren Mills from Foodlem feeds famished Amsterdam on a daily basis. Her biodegradable lunch- and dinner boxes are stuffed with seasonal vegetables, herbs, and spices, and a treat for the truly hungry. During this Over Datum Eetclub she was assisted by the American Baking Company which took care of the sweet ending to the dinner.
Escape to the South with Marianne Rosenberg
The cold misty autumn was wiped out by mediterranean aromas and flavors. Marianne Rosenberg brought her own oven and heated the Mediamatic bank up to southern temperatures. Freshly baked expired food was served at this rebellious food club.
Tonight's cook was Marianne Rosenberg, a true specialist in the Mediterranean kitchen. She was schooled in France, has a huge interest in the cuisine of other Southern countries, and is busy nowadays with her own company Coeck. In addition to her passion for the south, she also has a passion for pastry. Pieter Hubregtse, chef at KamerKook assisted her on this special southern night.
Do the Marengo with Ruud Kotterer
Tonight's chef was Ruud 'Do the Marengo' Kotterer. Not one to reject something just because it's on its decline, Ruud was the perfect Over Datum fit. He used all the expired products we had and managed to create a delicious meal.
Once upon a time Ruud Kotterer left for Paris to learn the ins and outs of cooking. Subsequently, his cooking skills sent him all around the world. Building on these global experiences, Ruud developed a cooking philosophy: Less is more, and the product has to be at the center of attention. But now that products are running out, and mother earth can no longer meet our demand, he was willing to fight with love and attention during this Over Datum Eetclub.
After making an inventory of all the expired products that were brought in, Ruud made up a menu. As a starter we had...
Elementary Particles with Ingeborg Merkx and Karen Bloemink
According to cooks Ingeborg and Karen, the elementary particles of any culinary feast are butter, oil, and flour. We added those basic ingredients to our own expired products and threw in our Over Datum cooking power to make it all come together.
The oven of Karen and Ingeborg ensured delicious oven scents and even a brief fire alarm. But the alarm was stopped, we quenched our thirst and stilled our hunger. In between the dishes we amused ourselves with the Tuimelaar and the Life collector installation.
