On 23 March 2019 the 10th Walking Dinner will take place in our neighborhood. We celebrate this special fact with eating the dessert together in the Couvéehouse, Frankenslag 139, The Hague. The chefs will cook the starter and the main in their own house.
Join if you would like to meet new neighbours and if you enjoy good food and company. Good news: you can subscribe until March 8. This means the subscription has been prolonged!
After an explanation of the program in the Couvéehouse, guests go to two different addresses in the neighborhood to enjoy a starter and a main course with neighbours at home. The chefs cook the starter and the main in their own kitchen. And with each course a new group of guests is sitting at the table. Chefs can indicate for themselves how large the group may be for which they cook. Groups consist of 4 to 6 people, but more is also possible. Chefs and their partners are at the table with their guests. All chefs receive a fee per guest for the ingredients and the wine.
We jointly conclude the evening in the Couvéehouse. Chefs and guests can then have a chat and enjoy the dessert.
