Dinner with Passionate Home Chef and Wine Pairing

The dinner with Simon and his adorable teckels were exactly what we needed. We admitted to Simon immediately that we booked with him because of his pups. We have 2 of our own and we missed them dearly.
When we arrived Simon greeted us and whisked us up to his roof top terrace were we enjoyed glasses of rosés. dinner was served in his beautifully decorated apartment and conversation flowed thru the evening.

Delicious Dutch Dinner

Dinner with Martine, her husband Olav & 3 other couples was the highlight of our Amsterdam trip. The food was excellent, the view overlooking the canal was beautiful, & converstion with other couples from very different locales was so enjoyable. I would highly, highly recommend!

Urban Farming in Amsterdam Oost Walking Tour

Carolina will show you the urban farming hotspots of Amsterdam Oost (Eastern Amsterdam).
With her background as a sociologist she knows the urban problems like a lack of social cohesion in disadvantaged neighborhoods.
One of the projects is to get people out of their homes on the street to engage in social contacts. Residents in these neighborhoods have received from the municipality plots for growing their own vegetables, flowers or herbs. The projects have proven to be successful. Residents take responsibility, social cohesion increases and problems as loitering or drug-related are significantly reduced. The project is for all ages from school children to seniors.
Armed with seed bombs Carolina walks through the neighborhood. Here and there she drops a seed bomb, which she calls guerrilla seeding.
Carolina has an extensive knowledge of different herbs and knows many applications. Such as hogweed, which is a protected species and can be used as garlic, but also about common herbs as thyme, rosemary and basil.
In the Tugelahuis garden we find mainly greens. The Wibauthuis Garden is an example how unused space turned in a successful garden project. The garden Afrikanerplein has ensured that nuisance by young people disappears and increased sense of security.
From restaurant De Kas we walk to one of the oldest city parks of Amsterdam Small Danzig with a wide variety of garden sheds.
At the end of our tour we sip herbal tea at Merkelbach restaurant also known as the Frankendael home. We left a trail of seed bombs and our knowledge of herbs have been enriched.
Away from the hectic center of Amsterdam Caroline lets you breath the fresh air of the vibrant suburbs.
Get to know Amsterdam in a special way Carolina is your guide who shows you the green side of the Dutch capital.
