goop mag #9

The more mass, virtual, and disparate our culture, the more (I think) we look for provenance, care and thoughtfulness anywhere we can find it. Thus, the spate of gorgeous hyperlocal restaurants, bringing the 'farm to table' concept even closer - to the kitchen garden. Vegetables never tasted so good.

Also, a bit of a steer on taking the kids to art museums, a scrapbook, and cool gear from ECOALF, a Spanish brand we discovered that fashions things we want out of recycled stuff.



This week’s goop collaboration


The farm-to-table concept has been around for a while, but many restaurants these days are taking it to the next level by growing their own produce, and in some cases, raising their own livestock. Veggies picked just steps from the kitchen mean a fresher plate, both in actual ingredients and concept, letting the harvest drive and vary the menu. Below are a few impressive destinations that are not only using food grown on the premises, but are really unique dining experiences in their own right.

De Kas

Amsterdam | Kamerlingh Onneslaan 3 1097 DE | +31 20 462 4562

De Kas is located in an old greenhouse, dating back to 1926, which was slated to be demolished but instead turned into this stunning restaurant and nursery. A bit out of the city center in Frankendael Park, it’s a calm and special location for dinner.

In summer months, up to around 85% of each dish is grown on the premises. Head Chef Bas Wiegel lends us a recipe he’s made recently – the cauliflower, garlic and kale are grown by De Kas.

Topping Rose House

Bridgehampton, NY | 1 Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike | 631.537.0870

Tom Colicchio recently opened a farm-to-table restaurant in the new The Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton. It’s been a tough seat to get this season, but totally worth it.

Blue Hill at Stone Barns

Pocantico Hills, NY | 630 Bedford Rd. | 914.366.9600

Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture, just 25 miles north of NYC, is a nonprofit farm and education center. It’s really a special place to visit for adults and kids alike. In addition to offering tours of the farm with a description of how it runs, there are a number of activities for visitors, with the intention of helping them become more engaged eaters.

Tomato Burgers

These tomato burgers are served as an hors d'oeuvre. And, while there are a few steps here, they’re actually pretty easy to make.

Visiting Art Museums with Kids

We talked to Amy Boyle, Education Manager at the wonderful Noguchi Museum in New York, to get some tips on how to make viewing art with your kids as enriching an experience as it can be.


When you have a group of kids at the museum, where do you start? Any questions or discussion starters to get the ball rolling?

A: The methodology that we use is called inquiry and we generally start by asking "what" questions like "what do you notice?" Set the discussion so they feel they already have the tools for it. With figurative art especially, it's great to imagine it as a story - who are the characters, what's happening in the scene, what are the visual clues that are telling you that story?
