Through one of my favourite blogs, I read about one of the finest restaurants in Amsterdam, De Kas , that was converted from an old greenhouse.

According to the Chef and owner Gert Jan Hagememan: “A kitchen surrounded by fertile soil where vegetables and herbs thrive … Where daylight shines in from all sides and where the chefs are free to express their creativity daily using the best the season has to offer. It seems an obvious concept, but I spent twenty years surrounded by white tiles under fluorescent lighting before I came up with it.”

That's like my dream. I hope it won't take me another 20 years to realise it.


  1. Yes! Yes! Yes!

    Restaurant in the wild... good chef, great nature... My dream too... But I got too many dreams already. Must focus.
