A culinary experience celebrating water, our most precious resource

by Imagine5 and Contrast

Water: it’s the life-giving essence supporting our entire ecosystem. Join us as we dive in and explore the amazing ways water sustains us in a one-of-a-kind culinary tribute taking us straight to the source.

We eat, drink, and breathe water without giving it much thought. But actually, it’s nothing short of miraculous. Each drop of this life-giving essence supports our entire ecosystem, flowing from sea to land and nourishing every single organism along the way: insects, plants, animals – and us. We are 60% water.

So let’s take some time to celebrate this amazing, fluid life-force. That’s why Imagine5 is partnering with Contrast to welcome guests on board their floating Amsterdam restaurant for an immersive culinary experience. A custom menu will tantalise the senses and nourish the soul, as we journey from the shoreline to greater depths, diving into innovative morsels every bit as delicious as they are sustainable. From ice to liquid to vapour, shapeshifting dishes reveal water’s amazing transformational power, right on the plate.

Paired with an exhibition bringing our connection to water in sharp focus, the evening invites us all to go back to the source and see the precious living blue at the heart of our world in a new light.

It’s happening.

And you’re invited in on the action.

About Contrast

Contrast brings together the worlds of water and sky, food and art, light and dark into a unique restaurant and exhibition space. Upstairs, the restaurant serves inventive, seasonal and beautiful menu in a modern pavilion of geometric spaces that create different layers and unique views of the city and the harbour. Downstairs, a gallery space offers a step into traditional ways of steel building and transport, while its dark walks highlight rotating art exhibits. Combined, they create a unique experience that sparks curiosity and invites guests to leave, satisfied in body and mind.

About Chef Iñaki Bolumburu

Born in a small town on the outskirts of Bilbao, Iñaki Bolumburu is a chef who brings the full flavours of his Basque roots into a modern context. Growing up in an area steeped in gastronomy and rich in both wild and cultivated produce, Iñaki’s dishes are a raw yet refined meeting of tradition, skill, and respect for nature. Fuelled by the desire to learn from and share with different cultures, he continues to explore as a nomadic chef, creating nature-driven dishes that put local produce and pure flavours at the centre of the table as he strives for sustainable solutions in the food industry. Iñaki comes with an exceptional cv having worked at Pure C** in Cadzand under the guidance of Syrco Bakker, and top restaurants such as Noma*** (Copenhagen), Mugaritz** (Basque Country) and Nerua* (Bilbao).
