It isn’t that often you get to spend an evening in bed, having food and delicious cocktails served to you while a topless showgirl dances in front of you. That for me, was last Thursday. We got to enjoy a cocktail night with Tess Posthumus, the 26-year-old bartender / cocktail shaker from Breda, who is winning one award after the other with her now (in)famous cocktails. Tess, who looks like she just came from the runway, sleek hair pulled back, all suited up and stuff, should be no stranger to Door 74 regulars. Tess may have started there as a student but is now a Door 74 superwoman. Tess has teamed up with Amsterdam’s Supperclub chef Joey de Vries to create a mouthwatering menu of food & cocktails (a first in the Netherlands perhaps): Shakingsupper. We were there to have a look – here’s what we had.
Salmon / cucumber / yuzu ice / wasabi crumble / ponzu
