KONINGINNEDAG SPECIAL - Gin Shed Presents Queen's Day, 30TH April(19th April 2013)
The Gin Shed presents Dutch Queen's Day Tues 30th April


Gin Shed at Platterform welcomes STAMPPOT to the Skyroom for an historic Dutch celebration…

The 400th anniversary of Amsterdam’s Canal Ring, the crowning of a new Dutch king and count down to Queen’s Day- Holland’s biggest annual event taking place on the 30th April.

STAMPPOT is a new food business launching in the UK focused on introducing refined classic Dutch cuisine using fresh seasonal produce and working with local vegetable growers, high quality seafood suppliers and renowned bespoke meat-maker the Franconian. Their namesake dish is a staple in the Netherlands and literally translates to ‘Mash Pot’. A classic hash recipe consisting of potatoes paired with other vegetables widely enjoyed by all Dutch families and adopted by many other cultures around the world from South Africa to Jamaica.

In collaboration with the Gin Shed, STAMPPOT have created a variety of small plates to be enjoyed ‘tapas’ style and to pair with genever and other gin cocktails.

Launching with Genever or ‘Dutch Gin’ (as it is known in the English speaking world), the Gin Shed retrace gin’s roots to the Netherlands where the spirit is believed to have been invented by a Dutch chemist and alchemist named Sylvius de Bouve - featuring our very own VAN WEES GENEVER!

First sold as a medicine in the late 16th century, jenever was originally produced by distilling malt wine (moutwijn in Dutch) and adding herbs primarily including the juniper berry (jeneverbes in Dutch) chosen for its alleged medicinal effects- hence the name jenever and the English name gin in turn!

Proost en Smakelijk Eten!

KONINGINNEDAG SPECIAL- 30TH APRIL!!

On Tuesday April 30th they will be going completely orange to host a final special date with our resident Dutch chefs celebrating Queen’s Day and the crowning of Willem Alexander. They will be screening the big ceremony and serving up authentic Dutch food and jenever cocktails all day and night! There are 2 sittings for food on the evening so be sure to snap up your tickets ASAP to avoid disappointment!
