New video series
In the six-part series ‘Hungry for Design’ top chefs are linked to local designers, in which the chefs are challenged to develop a dish based on the work of the designer. Among the chefs are well-known names such as Dick Middelweerd, Naresh Ramdjas, and Cas Pikaar. The participating designers are all young, talented designers with different backgrounds: from a social designer to an architect and from a sound designer to a material researcher. Bringing the different disciplines together results in special collaborations, common ground when it comes to the creative process, and, of course, great food.
