In the zen monasteries of Japan, China and Korea, to be a cook one should be highly developed in spirituality. A cook should be able to concentrate and maintain a positive and friendly mental state. He or she should be happy with their work, content and mindful, and a tolerant and creative individual. The food should be prepared in a state free from negative thoughts and emotional poison. We can all learn from this. Cooking should not be job oriented, but done with interest, willingness and joy.
Food Creativ enjoys when preparing, when offering to our loved ones, and when watching the afterglow.
Edwin Sander is chef and concept creator at Food Creativ. With ingredients directly from nature, skills that he has acquired as a chef and inspiration that he gains during his travels, Edwin engages you in the most sincere dialogue.
Because food is more than surviving, but also more than dining in the most exclusive restaurants.
Food connects friends, family and cultures. In a fast moving world where we are very connected, but don’t really connect, it is Edwin's mission to create time and space to enjoy food together, become aware of the origin of our food, to connect and have respect for everything nature gives us.
For years Edwin worked in different (inter)national michelin starred restaurants. He won awards as the most promising talent of the future, but chose to look for his own way in the meaning of food. The path that Edwin has taken is a constant journey of discovery. A process that runs parallel to its own life path. Edwin tells his story with every food creation. Right from his heart and soul.
