Brood van Menno

Filmmuseum-EYE-eindelijk-open_img900Ben je al eens bij filmmuseum Eye geweest? Voor het gebouw alleen is het al de moeite waard. Prachtig afgewerkt gebouw, strak wit van buiten en van binnen met bijnamen als de knipoog, de witte schelp en de badkuip. Ik vind het op een kikker lijken. Net als in een goede film kun je er blijkbaar in zien wat je maar wil.

Vanaf het terras heb je een prachtige uitzicht op het Y, Centraal station en de steeds mooier worden westelijke en oostelijke Y-oever. Voor een restaurant één van de mooiste locaties van Amsterdam. Jammer dat de dienstverlening daar ver bij achterblijft.

Het was heerlijk weer toen Michael en ik voor de lunch kwamen. Het terras zat dan ook goed vol. De eerste drie serveersters liepen langs ons heen en ontweken nadrukkelijk oogcontact. Toen we de vierde aanspraken en vroegen om een tafeltje werden we dan toch nog geholpen.

Het menu was aardig, alleen een beetje goedkoop dat het op een simpel a4tje gedrukt stond. Bij de broodjes stond dat het niet zo maar brood was maar “Brood van Menno”. Zowel Michael als ik kende Menno niet. Toen de serveerster klaar was voor de bestelling vroeg mijn tafelgenoot dan ook:

“Wie is Menno?”

De serveerster was duidelijk van haar stuk gebracht en kwam tot het volgende antwoord:

“Die is van het brood”. Korte, ongemakkelijke stilte. “De bakker”.

Ja, dat het niet de groenteboer was snapten we ook nog wel maar meer informatie werd ons helaas niet gegeven. Toch jammer. Als je als restaurant toch de moeite neemt om bijzonder (en duurder) brood te nemen dan het gangbare, zou het toch ook leuk zijn als de serveerster daar iets meer over kan vertellen dan ‘dat het van de bakker komt’.

Thuis maar even googelen,  een zoekopdracht levert 115.000 hits op, een korte samenvatting:

Menno schijnt niet zomaar een bakker te zijn. Hij was oorspronkelijk bedrijfseconoom maar werd daar niet gelukkig van. Op vakantie in Frankrijk raakte hij in de ban van lekker brood en kwam er achter dat dit in Nederland nergens te krijgen was. Hij stopte als econoom en ging naar Frankrijk om het broodbakken te leren van Basil Kamir, na verluid een van de beste bakkers van Parijs.

Menno bakt zijn biologische broden zonder toevoegingen direct op de stenen vloer van zijn moderne heetwaterovens. Daarbij gebruikt hij unieke recepturen en ingrediënten. En hij maakt gebruik van Frans meel. Maar wat het echt bijzonder maakt is dat hij afhankelijk van het broodsoort geen of heel weinig gist gebruikt maar een zelf gemaakte desemcultuur om het brood te laten rijzen. Menno levert aan veel bekende restaurants maar heeft ook door Nederland meerdere verkooppunten. Het is zelfs mogelijk om in zijn webshop brood te bestellen wat je thuis zelf kunt afbakken.

Die Menno! Als de serveerster me dit, of een fractie daarvan, had verteld was de lunchbelevenis naar een hoger niveau getild. Iets meer glimlachen en uitstralen dat de serveerster plezier in haar werk had, had hier trouwens ook zeker aan kunnen bijdragen. Nu blijft alleen het goede gesprek, het gebouw en het uitzicht over.

Toch een gemiste kans. Waarom neem je als je dit bijzondere brood verkoopt, niet de moeite om het mooie verhaal er bij te vertellen? Het broodje zalm, daar was niets mis mee maar de belevenis had met het verhaal van Menno aan waarde gewonnen en de kans dat ik terug zou komen ook.

Wat zou Menno hier trouwens zelf van vinden? Doe je als bakker je best om onderscheidend en bijzonder te zijn, wordt je weggezet als een dertien in een dozijn bakker…

    He Brian,

    Wat Jammer van deze negatieve ervaring. Ik heb een andere ervaring.

    Ik zal proberen kort en bondig te reageren. In mei 2013 heb ik 5 dagen lang een congres over social media mogen organiseren. In de voorbereiding van dat congres ben ik met vrouw en dochter een halve dag naar eye geweest en hebben we onszelf heel goed vermaakt niet alleen hebben we genoten van de buitenkant van het filmmuseum maar ook van de architectuur van de binnenkant en hebben we ook een heerlijke lunch genoten. Jammer om te lezen dat er blijkbaar ook personeel is aangetrokken dat beschikt over een minder bevlogen horeca hart.

    In de voorbereiding van het Nationaal Congres over Social Media waar ik komend jaar wederom in mag participeren zal ik zeker niet schromen de in deze colom gelezen feedback te delen met de verantwoordelijke manager in het filmmuseum Eye.

    Groetjes Ivo (als je wilt laat ik je een keer uitnodigen voor een fijne rondleiding).

      Hoi Ivo,

      Het ergste was dat het niet om 1 serveerster ging. Ik heb werkelijk niemand van de bediening zien lachen of uitstralen plezier te hebben. En heb er toch echt drie uur gezeten! Het was wel heel druk maar dat mag geen excuus zijn. Een volle tent daar moet iedereen toch juist blij van worden!

      Je kunt de link van de blog ook naar de verantwoordelijke doorsturen. Dan kan deze er nu al kennis van nemen en er wat mee doen (of niet natuurlijk).

      Ik laat me graag uitnodigen voor een rondleiding!

      Fijne dag,

      Brian
