In this pilot episode

Our ‘In Season’ segment discussed the oysters of Zeeland and the ‘Winkelwagon’ segment gave listeners the heads up on a current deal on organic blueberrys at the Ekoplaza. We had a special feature on the new Amsterdam Cooking Club meetups, and a very enthusiastic report on Bossche bollen cream cakes from Joe Montagna of Fat Kids Corner. Geli picked out a great rosé for our ‘Drinkables’ spot. We didn’t even get time for the ‘Eat My Dutch’ and ‘Five food faves’ features we prepared so we’ll introduce them in next week’s show. 

Reviews | Amsterdam restaurants, bars and cafés

Geli reviewed her recent trip to Plantage and @CathyCentral spilled the wine, sorry beans, on Singel restaurant, Breda. The latter was quite an epic story, including spilled wine, several mini carrots, “morning urine” and something called a “pre-dessert”.

Studio interview

With José Mendoza, co-owner of new neighbourhood restaurant, Café Capricho, where we quizzed him on their approach to setting up a neighbourhood restaurant in Amsterdam – without going bust.


There’s a deal on organic blueberries @ Ekoplaza for a few more days.
