There have been many food related events in Amsterdam in the past weeks. And more are coming up.

One that didn’t make it, is Amsterdam Culinair. It was supposed to be held on Museumplein from June 18 to 21. It was pitched as a creative, high-end food event. Intending to be like De Parade for food. The event had already been canceled in 2007 and was small-scale in 2008. Hopes to revive it in 2009 were dashed as it had to be canceled again.

It’s great to see more and more food festivals in Amsterdam. However, it’s not surpirsing to see some less succesful that fail to distinguish themselves in the crowded festival calendar.
