Dinner Session: Simon Vera

Sun 15 January

Grab a chair and join us at our table for an inspiring evening carefully balancing delicious food and enlightening conversations. 

Inspired by Gordon Matta-Clark’s artist-run restaurant FOOD, which flourished in New York in the 1970s, The Grey Space invites artists and food enthusiasts to come and cook affordable meals as an artistic and social expression at our weekly Dinner Sessions. Our Dinner Sessions surround communal dining, so we invite you to sit down at the table and open your mind to new insights, brought to you both through the food and conversations with the people around you. 

Simon Vera has a certain idea about how people should eat food: local, seasonal and vegan, and he seeks to enlighten others of the joy that comes from this way of eating. So for this Dinner Session, Simon prepares a menu primarily using produce that was sourced from Dutch producers.


Simon serves a three course menu with a starter of miso grilled cabbage, krombek bean puree and hazelnut matcha, a main of barley with pumpkin and beetroot and apple pie as dessert.

Price: €22,00
