Our Cook

Invitation for June 9, 2012

very special event of International Café on Saturday June 9, 2012. This time it will be an excursion, also taking us outdoors at this great time of year (we hope it stays dry!)

DUTCH FARM LIFE

First we will visit the home of the family Bos, where we will drink tea and visit their farm to get an idea of how farming is done in the Netherlands.

HENK HELMANTEL – A INTERNATIONAL KNOWN DUTCH PAINTER

Then we have an arrangement with one of the best known Dutch painters of our time, Henk Helmantel, to visit his home and exhibition in Westeremden. You can get an idea of his work on his website: www.henkhelmantel.nl, but to see it up close and to visit his amazing home (a parsonage restored to its medieval state) and to walk around in his spacious garden is so much better!

SOUP, SALAD, COFFEE & CAKE

There will be a meal of soup, salad, and bread with tea, coffee and cake. The total cost of the tour of the farm, the exhibition and the meal will be 4 euros pp.

FOOTBALL

We expect to return to Groningen by 20:00 o’clock, in time to watch football or study for exams!
