I am sorry this is not a quilty blogpost (yet) as promised but I just have to tell you about yesterday!
We are both foodies, just love good food, so with hubs birthday coming up and never knowing what to give him, I was happy to find the answer here a few weeks ago: on Francesca’swonderful foodblog!
So I booked a table for the champagne brunch for yesterday at the beautiful ConservatoriumHotel in Amsterdam:
The lobby is beautiful with lots of glass and plants, so light and spacious:
The lobby was built around the old outer walls of the Amsterdam Conservatory:
Our table was booked in the Tunes restaurant,
Let the food fun begin!
First course, for me (I always chose this when I see it on a menu), eggs Benedict (with some caviar this time, mmmm):
Fourth course, my favourite of the day:
Fifth course, dessert:
There was live music in the restaurant (some light jazz)
Before we left the restaurant Onno was given a small gift, because it was his birthday, so thoughtful:
And as a quilter I could not resist taking this picture of the floor near the entrance before we left:
We had the most wonderful afternoon, the hotel and restaurant are beautiful, the atmosphere chique but still cozy, the food excellent and the service impeccable, friendly without being intrusive, I fully recommend this and we will definitely be back!
But then the foodie fun wasn’t over yet, because when I got home and opened my email I found an email from Francesca herself informing me that I had won one of thegive-aways she organised because of her 2 year blog anniversary (is it called a blogaversary?)!
And it is no small prize, a Cuisinart Juicer! The first give-away I ever won, but it was worth ‘waiting for’!
The juicer will look beautiful on my kitchentop and will keep us happy with many tasty and healthy juices this summer, am looking up recipies already!
It was a great day for a foodie and a lot of it thanks to Francesca! Thank you again!
