Join one of our weekly cooking at Taste Before You Waste Amsterdam!

*No events during summer (July & Aug)


Every week, they host a ‘wasteless dinner’ on a Wednesday at the Dokhuis Galerie in Amsterdam. They collect food from stores and markets nearby that is due to be thrown away (but that is still totally edible) and they brainstorm recipe ideas, cook it up into a three-course vegan feast, and serve it to their guests in the evening. Taste Before You Waste seeks to educate the public on food waste and sustainable living through inspiration, and knowledge and by providing opportunities for waste-free consumption.

When and what?

There are three different shifts every Wednesday.

9:00 – 11:30: Picking up food from supermarkets

14:30 – 18:00: Cooking

18:30 – 21:00: Serving dinner


This project will take place at Dokhuis Galerie located at Plantage Doklaan 8, 1018 CM Amsterdam (Center).
