Saturday was the day for what everybody had worked for during the FOOD FOR THOUGHT project. The pop-up restaurant with closing concert took place.
13 musicians, four chefs and the project leaders organized an evening with a four-course menu and a live concert of six different bands for round about 50 guests.
So we decided to transform the event hall of the MusikZentrum to a restaurant with living room atmosphere for that day. New tables, chairs, sofas, flowers, even the tableware were ordered for that special day.
We created a modern, industrial chic pop-up restaurant for our guests.
The chefs prepared a four-course menu for our guests. All day and night they worked for it and created delicious dishes with a “1001 nights” theme.
Beetroot with cottage cheese, olive oil & peppermint, roasted pumpkin, hummus, falafel, spicy carrot dip and naan bread.
Yellow lentil soup & papadam
Lamb shoulder, puree of cauliflower, yoghurt and pomegranate
For the vegetarians:
Halloumi with sesame, puree of cauliflower and pomegranate
Mascarpone cream, grapes, walnut and brownies
Between the courses the bands performed their new songs which were created during the week here in Hanover.
First mixed band was Joy, Horiat, Selma and Jon
Second was Liza, Murel and John
Third band was Daan, Valentin and Elias
Fourth mixed band was Joules, Jochem and Martijn
Afterwards Tolls (Daan) and Neotropic (Joules, Elias, Joy) performed with their bands within they’re playing besides the FOOD FOR THOUGHT project.
