Gastronomical Summit Rethinking Japanese Knotweed Through Food


Fri May 31 2024 at 12:00 pm to 05:30 pm


Dijksgracht 6, 1019 BS Amsterdam, Netherlands | Amsterdam, NH

Every spring, Mediamatic organises a festival around Japanese knotweed. Knotweed is a fast-growing plant known in Europe for being considered a exotic invasive. This year's season explores the positive properties of Japanese Knotweed, including its surprising edibility. Join us for the finale of the Japanese Knotweed Season 2024 and explore the gastronomical possibilities of this plant.
This summit brings together a unique blend of chefs, researchers, designers, and artists to explore the multifaceted world of the Japanese Knotweed plant. Through thought-provoking discussions and culinary creations, the summit aims to delve deeper, transcending the plants reputation as a nuisance, placing it center stage to celebrate its potential. We’ll explore how our relationship with Knotweed can inform broader conversations about research, circularity in our food systems, and the evolving way we understand and define nature within urban environments.
Don't forget to join us for lunch! We'll be serving a delicious Japanese Knotweed Vegan dish specially created for this event.
