Some fields with cows as seen right outside of Amsterdam on the way to Utrecht. When I was young I was CONVINCED that chocolate milk came from those tan cows off in the distance (which you can’t see I know) and was pretty sad when I found out that wasn’t true! Bummer man!
Een stelling: ‘de worst is ondergewaardeerd in Nederland.’ Duitsers staan bekend om hun worsten. Vette Wurst zoals de braad en de curry variant. De mediterrane gebieden staan bekend om hun worsten. Subtiel én krachtig. Worsten met passie. In Nederland daar zijn de Noorderlingen trots op hun - droge - worsten. (Friese, Drentse of Groningse droge worst, proef jij het verschil?). Maar om nu te zeggen: wij zijn een land met traditie, qua worst. Worstmakers Brandt & Levie willen daar verandering in brengen.
I’ve met Samuel Levie when I participated Slow Food’s Youth Food Movement Academy back in 2010. He is one of the most inspiring and passionate people I’ve met with a clear message he’d like to spread, so he began YFM. His goal was to make people conscious about what they bring home into their kitchen and let them ask some questions when they’re in a supermarket, like: Where does my meat or milk come from? What I most appreciate is that he’s very sympathetic in sharing his vision about our current food industry which is focused on mass consumption.
Before I met Samuel he was doing some research with fellow YFm'er Jiri Brandt to make the best Worst (sausage) ever. One with flavour, made with quality ingredients and passion. They visited farmers, butchers and sausage makers in the Netherlands and Italy to learn about this craft and where the best ingredients come from. And now it’s time to share!
Brandt & Levie will organize their first Worst & Cider fest at Amsterdam Roest! Vegetarians are also welcome to join the BBQ. Check their website. I Love their website! Note 28th of August in your calendar and bring your smile :)
