Bloggers night at the Gouden Bock
"The good thing is that the portions are not too big, that you can share them and that the time between the dishes is perfect."
Bloggers night at de Gouden Bock in Middelburg. Yesterday night the moment was finally there. With several (food) bloggers we were invited to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the restaurant of Michelle and Martijn. We were welcomed with a kir royale and a home made crème de cassis.
While we are enjoying our drink Michelle tells us something about the restaurant and their vision. The Gouden Bock exists for 15 years and they celebrate this anniversary to put their 15 favorites of the last 15 year on the menu. They started in March and although it was a bit exciting if this would work during the busy Summer months, it still is a big success. 15 different dishes (size of a side dish) means a whole lot of fresh ingredients and different preparation methods. And when we talk about fresh ingredients, that is definitely what they work with at the Gouden Bock. Chef Martijn shoots a lot of wild by his self and also has a lot of friends that hunt and regularly call him that they have something for him. Because of that the menu is always different, at this moment they have wild boar at the menu. But if they sell a lot of it this weekend. there can be something different on the menu on Tuesday. They always cook with the seasons and use fresh and honest ingredients. That Martijn is hunting is something you can see in the restaurant. The entire wall is covered with little skulls of small goats he has shot.
