Amsterdam hosts seafood festival
Date Posted: 30/09/14
Foodie fanatics who can't resist a bit of seafood are heartily invited to Amsterdam for a festival they will never forget - the Vis & Seizoen extravaganza which will see thousands of attendees sampling everything from the finest tuna to the most delicious crab.
Taking place at the old central market hall in the Food Centre, the annual event sees the best-loved chefs congregate at a destination that could be described as a seafood lovers dream, and the 2014 incarnation is set to be no different.
Vis & Seizoen includes all you would typically expect from a seafood festival and more - opportunities to try out the tastiest sushi in Europe and the most delicious oysters in the world, as part of a wide array of offerings.
What's more, attendees will have many chances to learn how to replicate the best results in their kitchens, with cookery demonstrations, in-depth talks and 'how-to' guides designed to help people be successful when whipping up seafood in their own homes.
The event is even family friendly as there will be a whole programme of activities and events designed to appeal exclusively to children.
As well as the main market and cookery space in Food Centre, the festival will include a number of special dinners and events at various hotels and venues across the city, meaning you won't have to miss out if you can't make it to the hall itself.
Those interested in attending are advised to check the website for a full programme. The fun takes place from October 2nd until the 4th and you'll be in the company of a number of renowned chefs, including Alain Alders, Vito Reekers, Ricardo van Ede and Danny Nam.
Such an event is likely to be the highlight of any food fanatic's weekend break in the beautiful city of Amsterdam.
