The last edition of Meesterlijk Design en Ambacht

Afterwards we were told that after 10 years this was the last edition of Meesterlijk Design en Ambacht. Too bad because I thought it was a beautiful and good initiative. And of course it is still necessary to promote crafts and handmade products and to give them a platform. Now it appeared that Jan and I participated in the first edition of Meesterlijk and now in the last one. Below a photo account of the fair and of our stay in Amsterdam.

You can see our stand on the first picture. The houses looked intriguing from afar and made people curious about what was in the houses.

Meneer de Wit heeft honger

After the fair we got on the tram to have dinner. This is Meneer de Wit heeft honger, an intimate and informal restaurant with nice staff.

Chef Simo Bouabgha learned to cook from his grandmother in the sunny south of Morocco.

The cuisine is surprising, mainly (vegetable) dishes from around the Mediterranean.

De Plantage Amsterdam

This is restaurant De Plantage. A large restaurant in an orangerie near Artis. Isn’t it a lovely picture despite the rain?

Dinner was very good and we enjoyed the beautiful entourage …

We thank the many customers, friends and acquaintances for their visit to our stand at Meesterlijk Design and Ambacht in Amsterdam. Thanks for the loyal support of our small handmade company over the years!
