TIMELINE

28 March 2008

ORIGINATED IN THE GRAAF FLORISSTRAAT

Graaf Florisstraat: the most creative street in Rotterdam. Community center: private restaurant cum cinema (Floriscoop). On March 28, 2008 the film Sideways was screened. After that, we taste a different film every month. In the meantime over 50 films, from Festen to Chef, from Antonia to Vatel & still going strong!

FOUNDING CINEMA CULINAIR

Wies and Harold see opportunities to extend the concept of Floriscoop to a larger audience. On 1-1-2013 they founded Cinema Culinair to publish a book and organize shows in restaurants.

FIRST SHOWS AT BIRD

Room full of friends. Chef DJ Wooldrik cooks everyone to climax, just like in the film. What you see is what you eat. Good film. Good food. Great timing. First film of course Estômago. With dishes such as pasta puttanesca scooped out of the pan, rice with worms and Anita e Garibaldi. Guests raved about the concept. “We want more, we want more”. Cinema Culinair is changing course: from publisher to film-food events.

EAT YOURSELF TO DEATH WITH NAKED WOMEN

The ultimate food film: La Grande Bouffe. High-profile film from 1973 about friends who eat themselves to death. 20 courses + unlimited wine + naked women + Bugatti. From Bird's kitchen: black pudding, crepe Suzette, quail, cassoulet, pizza, mashed potatoes, etc. At your own risk: film we only show on special occasions.

BOOK ABOUT THE FOODFILM ESTÔMAGO OF CINEMA CULINAIR

Idea “What you see is what you eat" is too good to keep to ourselves. Time for a book + culinary script + DVD, so that people can do it themselves at home. A book about Julie & Julia was not allowed by Julia Child's heirs. So we wrote Estômago. Director enthusiastic and curious. 1000 copies sold without a publisher or central distributor. Out of the cost! Last copies may still be for sale somewhere as a collector's item and now as a pdf.

BURNED BOEUF BOURGUIGNON,
JUST LIKE IN THE FILM

Sometimes we fail. Or are too good. In the film Julie & Julia the boeuf Bourguignon is burned.
This also happened to us on 1 March 2015. Just like in the film. Fortunately, this is an exception. Since 2017, we have been conducting a survey among visitors afterwards. With fine grades. Our guests give our concept an average of 9.2!

WEBSHOP ALMOST COLLAPSED BY RUSH ON CHEF FILM + DINNER

On 11-1-2017 we started the online sales of the show CHEF. Film about a cook who quits his job and starts a food truck. With dishes such as Cubano sandwich, Korean chicken and Andouille sausage. In Rotterdam, at Zaal Staal. The post on Facebook is viewed by more than 55,000 people. All tickets are sold within 1 week: Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The webshop survived. Just. Six months later, the same happens with CHEF at Kantien in Utrecht. CHEF: You shouldn't just see that film, you MUST taste it.
