A taste bud tickling gallery event

For three weeks, the French garden of Gallery van Dun was the al fresco art gallery for leading international artist during the ‘Van Dun Sculptuur’ exposition. Art objects merged with a lush, green backdrop. Works created with the more traditional materials such as glass, bronze, stone, and steel met the unusual ones made of recycled car parts, matches, and dolls. And because one can’t truly appreciate art on an empty stomach, Baoase’s Executive Chef Rene Klop had the honor to create some bites for the opening night of ‘Van Dun Sculptuur’. Klop: ‘Artist and chefs are quite alike – turning our own experiences into something compelling to others. I am honored and grateful to be asked to present the culinary part of this event.’

Caribbean chefs explore U.S. barbecue

Caribbean chefs explore U.S. barbecue
It is true. We are never done learning. Even a chef like Rene Klop isn’t. Therefore, Baoase’s Executive Chef joined the U.S. Beef Education, Texas Barbecue Themes along with several other Caribbean chefs who dared to explore American barbecue. Though Klop has proven to be experienced in working with U.S. beef, featuring traditional meat dishes on his menu, this week of beef, beef, and beef brought the chef a refreshing view on the right cuts. Klop: ‘These seven days showed me exactly where our beef comes from and how it is produced while educating on the lesser-known – though incredible tasty – cuts. It is a story I would love to pass on at Baoase Culinary Beach Restaurant. In word and in dish.’
