Mexican tortillas two ways “Truefoods Mexican Experiment”

Yesterday we had an incredible dinner at the Hotel de Gouzfazant in Amsterdam North with the beautiful people of Slow Food Youth Network. The Hotel was a located in the middle of the industrial buildings next to the water. Although it has been a former cruise shipbuilding, they managed to create a welcoming and cozy environment.

All these details, huge paintings, sofas, soft light and different interior welcomed us. The open kitchen gave us a few on a well prepared, good working team which produced all this incredible food for us. If you ever have the chance to go there, definitely do it! Especially, when you are with a bigger group.

We enjoyed a 4 course dinner, had great conversations, connected and free wine – what would you need more ? Afterwards, we went to this small bar nearby. A real treasure. The facade perfectly hid the treasure that was inside. The whole bar was lightened by candles, everything was full of details, old books, wine bottles, cactuses of all kinds and Mexican art.

One of our friends works there as a bartender and once we settled on the couches they gave us a taste of their snacks. WOW !!!Blue corn Tortillas with.a creme of sweet potatoes, lime, Parsley, Guacamole and Cauliflower ceviche – you see ??? it was a huge inspiration for this dish.
