Even though it’s not situated in the most familiar neighborhoods, the recently opened restaurant Kuiter in Rotterdam West is definitely worth a visit. Owner and chef Joris used to work in River Cafe in London, is about 2 meters tall, bakes his own sourdough bread and lives above the restaurant. His menu changes on a weekly base but he’s got some regular dishes including glazed pork belly with grapes and roasted bone marrow. The best thing about assignments like these might just be eating the food after photographing it. My conclusion after the eating: At Kuiter the food doesn’t only look good but go and judge yourself if it tastes even better..
After travelling around the world, the Rotterdam ladies Danielle and Joyce built a place where you feel right at home. Ani & Hakien is a personal, stylish hostel in the center of Rotterdam. Even if you don’t want to sleep there, go and have a look! I went there with Broodnuchter to have breakfast, you can see our story here.
Under the banner of ‘Ready to wear, made by hand’ Rotterdam based designer Martine Viergever introduces a new line of jewelry and she asked me to photograph this beautiful collection. In the designs she looks for self evident simplicity, understated chique is key.
