Editor’s note:  Though the event is now “history”…  here is a wrap-up from one of the participating restaurants.  We will be on the lookout for information about the next scheduled event!

Sunday afternoon, September 22nd, Le Moulin Fou, Wicked Wines, Publique, Cottontree City, Kurk and Fouquet participated in a walkabout where guests passed by the six restaurants. In every restaurant they enjoyed a dish with a matching glass of wine.

The combination that Le Moulin Fou served was: a garlic spaghetti with marinated porkbelly from the oven, with gamba’s, 5 spices mayonaise and a marmalade of smoked tomatoes served with a glass of Pinot Noir from Reuilly, France.

The sun was shining fully and this in combination with great food and beautiful wines made us see many happy faces in Willemspark!

The cheese shop in Bankastraat has been sold. Annelies, who had been there for years, said goodbye last Saturday. Ample attention was paid to this in the neighborhood newspaper. For the store the following was on the board: Dear people, Thank you very much for the customers in recent years. I myself will focus on something else memorable. I hand over the cheese shop to another sweet lady: Mariël. Therefore, now it is a discount and empty sale! Warm cheese greeting Annelies. We will miss you Annelies!


To get acquainted, Mariël was in the business on Saturday. She also has long experience in this industry, she and her husband have a similar store in Loosduinen. Apart from a lady, the other employees continue to work here. In addition, Mariël will also be able to appeal to her daughters and she intends to be present for all working days. The assortment will not change much, but a visit to the French and Italian cheese show can bring some additions. Wine varieties will again be part of the range. We wish you all a good future around here.
