Tomato Brains

September 20, 2004

It usually takes me 2 weeks to get back into cooking once I have arrived home in Amsterdam from being away. Funny, because when I’m travelling I want to cook all the time. I think that it has to do with the scarcity of diverse ingredients and lifestyle here in Amsterdam and not the fact that it is home. Fruit doesn’t fall from the trees, grand dinners are rare and mostly at my house and chez a precious handfull of friends.

But no need to despair, on the fun side of the agenda I’m preparing a workshop for the FunLab at the Design Academy in Eindhoven and designing some food for the Museum N8 with and for Mediamatic. This means that there are test dinners to come. The nonsensical financial model called ‘give me a gig and I’ll invite you over to dinner’ is born.

Pictured above are of course tomato brains - everyone’s favourite part of the tomato. I’m currently experimenting with the brains and meat separately.
