Dutch Gastronomic Week in Beijing

Posted on

Dutch food and its culture is creative, innovative and sustainable. Therefore we are organizing a Dutch Gastronomic Week from June 4 until June 10. The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands partners up with Dutch Cuisine and Hilton Beijing to create a Dutch culinary journey for you at One East Restaurant. Taste typically Dutch, with a twist!

Sustainable, innovative and creative. These three aspects exemplify the Netherlands, its food and its culture. Therefore, the Dutch Days Beijing are celebrating their five-year anniversary with a diverse program on food and the Dutch approach to it. To really put the Netherlands on the map, you can taste a special menu created by Executive Chef Albert Kooy together with Chef Marco Lexmond and Chef Eelco Bleeker from Stenden Hotel at Hilton Beijing’s One East Restaurant from 5 to 10 June. Additionally, we have organized a packed program with lectures, workshops, and of course our Open Day.

In this week, we also present a selection of Dutch Design tableware. The Dutch creative industries excels in cross-overs, so we are bringing Dutch food and Dutch Design together. Objects of some of the most talented Dutch designers are curated by Dutch

Cuisine and Cor Unum for a special mini expo in the One East Restaurant. Unique products will be on display, designed by the avant-garde of the Dutch Designers such as Mae Engelgeer, Floris Hovers, Alex de Witte, Bas van Beek, Kranen/Gille and RENS. The Dutch Days aim to bring cultural exchange, business opportunities and political engagement to a large Chinese audience. The festival is organized in many cities spread
throughout China, at different times during the year. Earlier this year, the Dutch Days were hosted in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Every edition has its own theme, showcasing the diversity of strong Dutch disciplines.
