Chateau St Gerlach
Well I made my publisher's deadline. Yesterday I handed in 5 illustrations for a new series of boxed culinary notecards. The illustrations will be teamed with recipes of the chefs of Camille Oostwegel Chateau Hotels & Restaurants: Kruisherenhotel Maastricht, Chateau Neercanne, Chateau St Gerlach and Winselerhof. Camille Oostwegel is a renowned Dutch hotelier with a passion for restoring monumental buildings. All his hotels and restaurants are situated in the South of Holland. His latest project the Kruisherenhotel is in the centre of Maastricht, a former Crosier cloister, dating from the fifteenth century. Together with the monumental gothic church, this complex has been transformed into a spectacular designer hotel. The interior has been created by internationally renowned interior designer Henk Vos. Throughout the complex designs classics by Le Corbusier and Rietveld and modern designsers such Philippe Starck and Roderick Vos contrast beautifully with the original stained glass windows, walls and ceiling paintings.
note: each illustration contains ingredients from its corresponding recipe. pieces of Maastricht's aardewerk (ceramics) serve as the Southern Dutch heritage"ingredient".
