Workshop Jellinek

Drinking beer, smoking joints, or maybe even a pill or a bump? It’s entirely possible that during your student time you may come into contact with, or become curious about, alcohol and other drugs. 

The use of these substances can affect you and how you feel in many ways. What's up with that? Perhaps you have burning questions of your own. For example, what happens to your body when you take MDMA? How do I deal with the social pressure surrounding alcohol? How addictive is cocaine really? Where can I go when I have any questions about alcohol and other drugs? Together with Jellinek and Unity Amsterdam, these questions (and more!) can be discussed in a safe environment.

This workshop takes place during the following moments:

Vegan Asian food workshop and lunch

Join the vegan food workshop and learn how to make finger food and (lunch) dishes under the guidance of vegan chef Anne Wagenaar from Robin Food Volkskeuken. You will prepare snacks together with the caterer and serve for lunch to curious fellow students who were not able to participate in the workshop.

Vegan chef Anne Wagenaar wants to introduce interesting flavor combinations from the vegan kitchen and explains the importance of a balance between salt, sweet and sour and how important this is in a vegan diet. 'In the workshop I want to introduce the students Asian ingredients. I also want to show that vegan food is not difficult, and does not have to be expensive. I will also tell about importance of eating healthy, with ingredients from all food groups, and how simple it is to eat enough protein as vegans.' The dishes are easy to recreate at home: the ingredients are available in Dutch supermarkets and Asian shops.

This workshop takes place from 11:30 until 13:00, followed by a lunch from 13:00 until 14:00. De location is BG2 0.01 (Turfdraagsterpad 15-17).
