Gastronomic field trip Rhederoord 2011 – new video clip

Like last year (see the respective blog on the field trip and the rather amateuristic video clip I made of it) students attending the course Origin Food: a market for identity made a field trip to the Rhederoord estate to learn more about the passion for local food and actually taste excellent local cuisine. Jidi Xu, one of our enthousiast students made a ‘cool’, dynamic video clip of the field trip that will especially be appealling to young people, although I liked it very much too!
