  1. So now batgirl has gone back to her land of pasta (for now), the American didn't get delayed (unlike me). Batman is sleeping still before she goes and shows off in toronto and me I'm delayed 2 hours for now. So I m catching up on my missed days. So as Kerry mentioned 4 days of show 2 focused on trade 2 for chocolate lovers. Well needless to say we killed it. We did demos,and chocolates OK not any chocolates raspberry or hazelnut or strawberry mango. People loved it.we also pulled a 72% Saint Domingue out of the blue. Let me tell you it was bomb. 💣 Anyway like Kerry told you guys as always all kinds of people all kinds of talks the usual chocolate crowd like the owner of the previously great chocolate life or the editor of dessert professional but a few of Kerry's buddies but as you noticed I ain't Kerry. So the first night of the fair - we had a gala dinner. Let me tell you food this exceptional I had not eaten in a very long time. It was uniquely memorable with an unpaired experience. I do t think there's a better way to say it. It was mind blowing. We started off with hors d'œuvres and a glass of prosecco - by hors d'œuvres we are talking carrots and tortillas with dark chocolate sauce 🙏 Followed by smelly ahi yellow fin tuna with 4 dots of I'm not too sure Next as you can see on the picture pheasant with a micro mini gratin and a manjari sauce yummy! The b vegetarian had a thin beet carpaccio very tasteless and a pumpkin filled with veggies or what looked like it. But they forgot to cook the pumpkin Dessert was prepared by a master pastry chef with chocolate, pineapple, and not too sure of the rest. And some mini desserts for the fun of it. Please eat with your eyes. Notice my couffin style bed (very much creepy at 5 am) Morning3 we ended at a group breakfast. Met the people from lareeka (they build expensive wrapping machines if anyone has 100000€ to give me) Got to meet marketing of Tony chocolonelly. So we decided to check it out.

Oh my God look at the pictures. They have a custom line (full) where they make customized bars. Place your order online and get it done. Awesome. The rest of the day was all work related. Meet and greet we ran away from to a borderline creepy Syrian restaurant in the red light district (I think we never left it in 5 days) Often enough I choose to avoid demonstrating my lunch choices due to their non healthy impact on my metabolism but please remember I'm a growing boy. 😊 I think batgirl just landed so be right back
  3. Hey hey hey... It's not really the girl the issue the time in Amsterdam has been crazy busy. They made the show go from 9:30 to 6pm and then there's setup and clean up which adds another 2 hours and my boss (Kerry) is not here. I have to admit these adventures without Batman just don't feel the same. I mean batgirl is awesome but nobody beats Batman. Enough métaphores back to Dan dam. So I think one of the first reasons why I didn't write was because of the fumes... Not the car ones but more so hashish ones. I think I was stoned every day. People spend their time huffing and puffing like if it was nicotine. People seriously do it at home. I saw this young pretty girl (just saying) pushing a stroller with her joint in her beak like a f@$$&" trucker. Like for real???? I have spent too much time in Canada I think. Anyhow as the Amsterdamers say not everyone does drugs... Right!!! So after the museums we got the show up and going. I mean for us eztemper people it's a 20 min setup but combined with DCM grinders and batgirl. Make that 4 hours. It's not their fault to be honest they are office people lol and American 😂 JOKES After that we tried to meet up with a group of people living on a boat - dandelion - French broad - and many others - but that got boring real fast. Tight circle even with popular people beer, boredom - bye... That night we did Tibetan food - I was told and guaranteed it was food from Tibet ( however did not know Tibetans did sweet and sour chicken or even Pékin duck. However best meal this far but picture are available in batgirl phone . First date 😌a walk around the red light alley (omggggg). Then off to bed... Oh my God the room. Visit the website of the exchange hotel Amsterdam to get an idea. Enjoy the few pictures as I'm getting breakfast. The snoring guy in the lounge is stressing me out...
  4. So it’s not that I dropped off the face of the earth but the last two days have been go go go. Where did I stop. ah haircut... then we rushed to the Van Gogh museum. But just before we had lunch in a tourist Amsterdam tavern. We all got to enjoy local dishes lol. I have fried eggs on white breads. Bianca (aka Belle) had a salmon club sandwich and mushroom veggie omelette. All this for the lump sum of 50€. That’s what happens in tourist locations. We digested the meal running to the appointment made to visit the art. i was a big fan o Van Gogh for some reason but after seeing this expo I felt much less inspired by him. He had an interesting life but I think I see his art differently now. i leave you with a few pictures and will continue after dinner. I’m sure you all want to hear about that pretty girl that made me melt.
  5. Surinamese food is very close to Asian style. In the end I was quite confused. Roti, soups, deepfried, with a lot of potatoes and carbs. its not spicy but all the condiments tend to generate heat somewhere. At this point all I know about reducetarian is to minimize the consumption of all “harmful foods” but I think it’s mainly a myth. Now that she is making her way into my life we will change that to “highrodneytarian” loooolllll. We are now waiting at a barber shop because the other boss didn’t plan ahead.

  7. So I was at dinner, the two North American men are starving... did i mention Bhavani doesn’t eat meat or drink and his beautiful sidekick is a reducetarian (this “lifechoice” did start a whole can of worms - story for later) so back to starvation we are starving. Sidekick 2 (Valentina) recommends a few “good eats” to choose from. we decided on a dinner Surinam inspired. so we get a taxi - us tourist got taken on a lonnnnngggg ride with a not so honest taxi. This is where I will advertise for UBER. so Surinam fast food joint half luxurious half McDonald’s. By 6:20 the place was empty. No English menu so I venture in recommendations. Needless to say what I picked was decent. Pulled chicken in a curry sauce with potatoes egg and frozen Green beans. Plate was fairly big. The waitress said I would be full but she doesn’t know who she was feeding. To start Bhavani picked deep fried plantain and a potato and spice “friter” good with a burn your gut and butt hot sauce Then we wondered back to the hotel for an early night. we should have gone back out but too lazy. So hood night sleep later (you most are sleeping by now anyway) we are enjoying breakfast in our boutique hotel lobby. Going to change rooms and head to the show.
  8. It’s a rice milk to clean the wheels i discovered we can do nut milks with the DCM melangers
  9. Ok so day one has come to an end. It’s not like travelling with my Batman me being Robin. so the hotel to start. 7 floors high ( we learned that buildings in Amsterdam can’t be too high because of water) let’s just say that my room is the biggest out of 3. Bianca and Bhavani literally have what I call a shoe box - stretch your arms out and touch the walls or even better pee, shower and brush your teeth at the same time. so yeah aside the massive luggage to drag - I got lucky food of the day, I declined breakfast in the plane in exchange of 30 min of sleep. Unfortunately that didn’t happen so drank my sorrows in Minute Maid apple juice. our only meal till 6 pm. aftergetting to the hotel (rooms not ready) we went to visit Valentina’s (bhavani employee) workplace. The girl’s boss bought the whole setup for bean to bar in Selmi. She is learning how to use it at this point. then we visited a customer (bhavani had to fix a part) which took a good chunk of our afternoon.machine fixed, cleaned and setup Kerry’s dear friend The chocolate life dude clay showed up. Moving on. we finally got our rooms. Let it be said that all this happens in a 3 km radius of tourist town Amsterdam. 30 min break and back we go. what do we do for dinner? ill post all that after a short commercial program - be right back
  10. Landed - oh my god the have wind mills in the water by thousands. its 8c which changes from my -15 expected diner was high end plane food let’s just keep it at that. got to sleep so ready to attack the city let’s reconvene in a few hours. In the mean time let me leave you with some pictures
  11. Flight delayed... my butterflies are killing me - found this in the lounge no the buns are ace bakery but we make many of their products now. Seems like we will make more soon 🤞
  12. Spoiled... I would say tasteful or maybe lack of? Hum... I spend too much time on the posh chair at this point. Flight delayed, computer and phone charging. Can' wait for the plane food... Yum Beef wellington with the same texture as beef bourguignon.

  14. As many may know - Goûter is finally starting to move and one of our customers is in the airport. So I had a meeting with the Chef and here is the outcome. sitting at the lounge having a sit down dinner with CHAMPAGNE. I was going to do the lamb but. Classically chose THE BURGER Royalty/ famous person/ I feel posh and exclusive in the signature lounge awesome... 🙀😊
  15. - Hey Boss, let's do Amsterdam this year... - Ah no can do I'm staying in Toronto for The Restaurant Show... And 3 months later - 3 suitcases, 30kg for 2 of them and 10 for the baby one here I am all grown up heading for multiple reasons To beautiful AMSTERDAM. Chocoa is the show - Eztemper is conquering the world one country at a time. But this time, my Kerry is sending me solo... Me... yes the young arrogant pastry chef you guys all may have heard about through our crazy adventures and have seen grow to being me. Well solo is a bit exaggerated I have a chaperon and a beautiful surprise. So I will do my best to fulfill the duties of posting and relating my story. Not just one... Because this trip has multiple intentions... You will see. Fingers crossed. Bare with me and enjoy - and if you have any suggestions on what I should do especially a place for a first date...(shhhhh it's a secret)
