Every season we host an intimate dinner to taste and celebrate the spices we preach. Look at it this way: a spice salon where there’s room for storytelling, fun flavours and new connections. But it’s also the place where we don’t shy away from deeper questions.

Solitude

Can you be at ease with yourself?
Let us look at solitude and loneliness from a different angle. How is this reflecting in your home cooking and intimate rituals? This dinner is an invitation to go from disconnection to connection.
This is a 4-course menu with dishes we like to make when no one is watching, cooked by Camille Parthesius. The whole set-up and design of the evening is opening the conversation about how we cope with solitude. There will be music, drinks, plenty of spices and hella good company.
Come, have a seat at the Spice First table. Join us July 9, 2021 (🤞).

As a guest you will experience the intimacy of a dinner party crossed with local design. This all is made possible because of our crew.
Founder
Sophie
Sophie Fleur is an Amsterdam-based freelance food writer and (social) media marketer who thinks everything tastes better with lemon. She worked for Ahold (BOON magazine en Savory in NYC), Mitra, Etos and other culinary clients. In her spare time she moves her body in pretzel shapes and teaches others how to do the same. She has a special talent for making short stories longer and shares recipes nobody asked for. After finishing her studies in art- and architecture history in 2016 she decided that her hunger for the arts should come second, and spice first.
founder
Eva
Eva is a 30 year-old freelance lifestyle journalist and writerwhose work focuses on lifestyle and human interest. Her work has been published in Viva, Grazia, Glamour, Bever, JFK, Bever Buitensport and more. In 2019 she found her true calling (as she feels it): Ayurveda. That same year she started studying for Ayurvedic Practitioner Trainée at the Delight Academy in Amsterdam. Her motivation is to help people reconnect with their bodies and inner knowing again. Encouraging them to take their health into their own hands - and yes, spices play an essential role. As Ayurvedic practitioner Trainéé she also offers personal Nutrition & Lifestyle Consultations.
Producer
Zita
Here you can read something smart, witty, and fun, oh yes definitely fun, about Zita. Without Zita Spice First would fall apart. She is the creative producer you need. With her jaunty excel and organization skills, Zita makes dreams more accessible. Spicy food, feasts, film - and female empowerment - are F*ing important to this lady who believes hard work can go hand in hand with a social life.
designer
Jorien
Jorien is an interior and set designer. She has a special eye for colour (or call it a severe condition), which she uses in the often monochromatic scenes that she creates - if you see a tall woman with a monochromatic appearance, it might be her. Her projects vary from permanent interiors to more temporary setups like events and photo & film sets. She joined Spice First as a devoted taste enthusiast and has the ambition to create beautiful food experiences.
chef
Camille
She’s a creative (check out her illustrations!) and the owner of the culinary creative agency ‘Neko Jusu’. You might know it as a cheeky lemonade brand, but Camille herself does heaps more. She creates talk-of-the-town pop-up concepts and custom made drinks and food pairings for restaurants and events. Moreover she’s a genius when it comes to tickling your taste buds with surprising flavor combinations that perk up every sip and bite.

Teamwork makes the dream work, right?
That’s why we like to work with designer friends and other cool people (yes, without you we couldn’t have done this) that bring the same energy and fun to the table. Our dinners are the perfect opportunity to highlight and experience the beauty of their craftsmanship. Think funky cups, hand painted table linen, spoken word sound design and photography. Interested in collaborating with us? Get in touch.
