Hiske loves food and used to cook in restaurants all over London and Amsterdam. Nowadays she is a journalist, but never gave up her passion for food and cooking, writing about it on her blog. Escaping the written word for one more night, she dived back into the kitchen at our Over Datum Eetclub. If you love her food as much as we know you will, then you can get a second helping on the 17th of December when she'll be cooking a big benefit dinner for on-line magazine Hard Hoofd.
This Over Datum Eetclub we were blessed with a shopping cart stuffed with expired bok choy. There was also no shortage of chocolate, bread, prepackaged salad and wok vegetables. But what can you make out of all that? Hiske, with her great improvisation skills, looked around and made up a plan. The bread was placed in the oven with some garlic and a nice soup was made in the big pan with black pasta, fresh herbs and Mediamatic mushrooms. Big bowls with fresh green salad were placed on the tables, after which we could join the row for stir-fried bok choy and the typically British dish bubble and squeak. That is a kind of fried stew with loads of vegetables in it (mostly the left-overs from the day before). For dessert Hiske created a chocolate milk bread pudding, stewed pears and a banana milkshake.
This was the second last Over Datum Eetclub. Do you want to join the last edition? Make sure to RSVP! Over Datum Eetclub takes places at Mediamatic BANK, Vijzelstraat 68, Amsterdam. You can find the portraits that were taken during this evening here.
