One of my favourite spots in Amsterdam is Proef. A very special restaurant/studio of eating designer Marije Vogelzang. Marije makes fantastic concepts with food! I found this text on her website, which explains her work very well: "Eating design is to design from the verb 'to eat'.” Designers who work with the subject of food are often called 'food designers'. According to Marije Vogelzang, food is already perfectly designed by nature. Instead, her designs focus around the verb 'to eat'. Vogelzang is inspired by the origin of food and the preparation, etiquette, history and culture around it. For this reason, she doesn't consider herself a 'food designer', but as the first 'eating designer' in The Netherlands. Every time I'm in this little cosy restaurant I have an evening full of surprises. I just received a newsletter that her restaurant is open again! (During winter they are having a big winter sleep...) Can't wait to go there! If you don't live nearby maybe you can find some inspiration in her books EAT LOVE & broodtrommelboek.
