EVENT || Rotterdamse Kost





Rotterdam is growing more and more, and I must say that the last 2 years my city has become
The place to be for cool events and festivals.
The past weekend I attended the an cultural and culinary festival  named Rotterdamse Kost in the city of Rotterdam.

This festival was the place to be this weekend if you were looking for a huge dose of music and good portions of quality dishes from the best restaurants of Rotterdam.
Rotterdamse Kost latterly gave it’s visitor a taste of different dishes from op restaurants like New York, up to our favorite French fries of Bram Ladage.
Since I wanted to try something new I ordered a portion of squid rings from New York which tasted delicious!


 








You could also follow a cool Jenever workshop from Ketel1 which looks absolutely worth the low price!
It was a great sunny day, so I was happy to arrive to a crowded festival with great live music and a cooking contest between 4 top chef’s which was pretty cool because you had the opportunity to watch these chef’s in action while even being able to ask them a quick question, the contest itself was over an hour which gave everyone the chance to see them cooking live. I myself walked around and ended at this stage several times to see what they were cooking next.
The festival itself was a nice size and several different stands were spread in a large circle of bakery goodies and places to sit, eat and chill!




I do have to give a shout-out to a delicious hot dog stand Hans Worst which is based a great main location next to the metro station in the centre of Rotterdam.


This cool set of gentleman make the greatest hotdogs and actually the only ones a truly LOVE!
So it was pretty cool to see them at this festival baking there dogs with Jack Daniels a soft bun with and a great sauce!

I ended of with a little sweet treat from the Koekela bakery located at the “Binnenweg” in Rotterdam.
I got 2 pieces of carrot cake for me and my boyfriend to enjoy later in the evening.


If you are in Rotterdam, take the time to go to this bakery for a tea and a large selection of pies and cookies to choose from and also take a few on the go.


I can tell you that I’ve spend a good amount of my salary to this addicting bakery!.



Rotterdamse Kost was amazing and tasty.

I have seen a bit more of what restaurants I can find in Rotterdam and gave me a good preview of what food to expect, and all of this under the pleasure of live music and live demonstrations
The people seem to have a great time, I had a great time so I’m certain you would too.

The second edition was amazing, and well organized by the team!


I’m looking forward  to next year!


SHOP TIP || It's gets better and better.. LODINATT





I was so happy when receiving my new Work bag from Lodinatt!

You must remember my previous kudos and love for Lodinat’s double compartment bags.

They have created several models of their 2-level bag collection and this is their latest creation.

They come in the Navy/Red and White/Navy color which I have received.

Just as the previous models, this bag is also made out of good quality material and feels as if it can take a punch of two. I find this very important because I don’t want to have a broken handle emergency or ripped zippers.

No, Lodinatt bags have never dissappointed me and have always received nice comments about it.
 Another goof factor is that the bag can be carried in 3 different ways!

You can choose to wear the bag as backpack which I do when I go out for a walk or chill day in the park, or as shoulder bag which looks just as classy as it is casual for work and appointments.
The bag has 1 hidden pocket in the front which is perfect for my keys and transport cards, it has enough space for my travel laptop, my EC planner cables as more I could wish for!







I still love the separate lower zipper compartment where you store some heavy stuff like a camera, make-up bag or YES your shoes ladies!






Have a look on the Lodinatt website or be inspired by other cool bloggers who rock this must have bag on their FACEBOOK PAGE.
