Choc doc hibernates... but Eztemper va Gouter Amsterdam

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

@Alleguede

 

so nice !

 

for informational purposes only

 

your first two pics did not come over to me.

 

but thanks for all the other pics

 

I n now realize 

 

for a bazillion years

 

Ive missed the point :

 

I do know that odd numbers of items on Le Plate

 

and around your home

 

with dangling lights over your sink etc

 

are far more attractive than an even pair

 

Ive known this for Quite Some Time 1

 

I am indebted to you

 

for pointing out to me

 

that Three Eggs are Best !

 

Im on this tomorrow

 

So Many egg pairs

 

over so many years  

 

were not quite up to it.

 

:(

I've been only once to Amsterdam and what I desired more than anything else was a vanilla milkshake.

@Alleguede, so you prefer spending time with your new love instead of documenting your trip here on eGullet? When you come back the Doc should prescribe you some suppositories!

Yeah! Bros before... err... never mind. Never actually been a fan of that particular phrase. To be honest, if I was in Amsterdam with a  pretty lady, eGullet would be lucky if they heard a peep out of me 'til I got back... so I think he's doing pretty good. :D

Some! It's been quite interesting because there is a woman who is trying to tell me that they offered her the unit they are using for the demos at a price that I would never offer it for and she wants it even cheaper. She's claiming they are saying one thing - meanwhile I'm getting texts telling me what was really said.

That's the kind of customer it's better to loose. Only troubles after that.

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...

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

 Sounds like you had a busy time filled with all kinds of experiences.  Hope your flight home is uneventful. But did you sell any units?
