Dinner hosted by the City of Hasselt

On Thursday 23 August 2018, the conference day will conclude with a conference dinner in the city center of Hasselt. With the support of the city of Hasselt and sticking to the theme of the conference, a participatory process is set up for this dinner. A collaboration is set up between three large kitchens and chefs from Limburg; together they prepare one dish that can be prepared within the possibilities of the kitchen, that can be part of the menu in the organisation in the future and that ts the conference.

In doing so, they face a challenge of design- ing a vegetarian, gluten and lactose-free recipe with mainly local ingredients.

  • For the starter, the kitchen of rest home St. Elisabeth collaborates with chef Alexander Reniers (Osteria Moretti).
  • The main course is prepared by the kitchen of the Jessa Hospital, together with Marijke Vanwelkenhuysen (Oats).
  • The kitchen of social work place De Wroeter takes care of the dessert, with help from Jan Wauters (6 zinnen).

The new dishes will be served for the first at the conference dinner for around 200 people. Afterwards, they will be put on the menus of the different kitchens.
