Culinary Dining Tour
Culinary pleasure on the water in The Hague, Amsterdam and Leiden
This year, the Culinary Dining Tour will be organized in three cities: The Hague, Amsterdam and Leiden. Last year’s event – the first Culinary Dining Tour in The Hague – was such a huge success that the decision was made to go national, rolling it out slowly across the country. In 2013 in The Hague alone, 650 people attended, and the event has already become a fixture on The Hague Events Calendar.
The aim of the event is to introduce the audience to the culinary highlights of the city’s (top) restaurants, while acquainting them with the city’s history. The parallel aim is to entice them to come back to the city at some later point in time to get to know it – and its restaurants – better. The guests will be welcomed for a 90-minute dinner cruise that will take them along the beautiful canals of The Hague, Amsterdam and Leiden. Top chefs will prepare delicious five-course meals which will be served on board.
Many organizations are planning on inviting their relations to the Tour, or to organize the Tour for their employees – so that they can enjoy its great ambiance and excellent wines. This year, the Culinary Dining Tour will be organized in the following cities:
In The Hague, the Tour will take place on Friday, June 13 (from 4 P.M. till 9 P.M., 18 boats) and Saturday, June 14 (from 12 P.M. till 9 P.M., 30 boats). Friday will focus on the participants in, and guests of, the World Hockey Championships, as well as expats from in and around The Hague. The lingua franca will therefore be English. Participating restaurants are Restaurant Niven, Restaurant Pearl (Hilton Hotels), Villa la Ruche, Restaurant Basaal, and Paul van Waarden. It will take off from the centre of The Hague (Bierkade). So, do you like meeting compatriots from your home country, making new expat friends or business networking? Then you have to be there.
