De Voorkamer Soek
What does a ‘burn your finger’ dish tastes like? Why is Maqluba called Maqluba? And what is ‘the dish’s spirit’?
During the first weekend of March, De Voorkamer will transform into a Souk (food market). Our self-made meeting space will become a celebration of flavours, scents and colours.
Three cooks from our current team will dazzle you with their favourite dishes:
Karama - the Iraqi cook, who creates food that makes you feel at home.
Abdulrahman - the Syrian fisherman and cook creates beloved Syrian dishes, such as ‘seven countries’, and ‘burn your finger’.
Ahmad - the musical baker, who not only makes delicious sweets, but also sings (if you ask really nicely!)
The Souk, or the market, has been since ancient times a place for gathering and exchanging goods. Traditionally, it was located outside of the city to make it easy to access with large carriages. Even in the digital, global society as we live in today, the market is still a spot that brings a city to life, and creates opportunities for encounters.
Come and compose your own meal from the different stalls, discover the stories behind them, and get a sneak preview of work in progress by the talented team members.
