At an early age, Arzu could always be found in the kitchen. She created her foodbars and built a wellknown name for herself, with the compliments that it looked like her foodbars came from a bakery. But nothing is less true – all bars are handmade in her own kitchen! Cocobars, Espressobars, Magicbars and many more kinds of bars are Arzu’s specialty and can she be found at more and more foodmarkets. At Taste this year, we can enjoy her foodbars again!

Wood that is rich in history, with a sustainable future.
What do we do and why?
Hout van je Stad (love your city / wood from your city) makes beautifully-designed and sustainable products out of wood from trees from your own city. Normally turned into wood chips for a forest path or fuel for a furnace, these trees are instead now afforded a second life. In this way we avoid wasting good wood and at the same time we create products with history and a story. Products to love, to be proud of and which connect you to your own city.

Soba U Ginger Beer is a clear, still drink made with a blend of mineral water, 9% pure ginger juice, almond essence, cloves and star anise. The result is a distinctive flavour that has a subtle sweetness without tasting sugary. The herbs give a delicate and sophisticated floral scent and as you sip the drink, the spice comes through. The real ginger juice gives an pleasant kick that gently warms the back of the throat without the burning sensation sometimes associated with ginger beer. The overall experience provides the indulgence of drinking a fine wine or spirit but without alcohol.
