Hi dear guests of De Suikertuin,
This is a combined April/May Newsletter for a reason: we have a lot of activities coming up and a few of them are still in April. To begin with there is Anton Isaak’s follow-up to his lecture about the differences between women and men in handling stress: this will be held on Wednesday, April 28, starting at 7.30 pm.. Those of you who were present at his previous fun lecture are invited to come again and resume the lively discussion of a few weeks ago.
And then there will be our special `Koninginnedag’ event on April 30th. Called `We go Rosé on an Orange Day’, this is a super deal to let you get better acquainted with three of the Arion Wine Company’s excellent rosé’s, tapas and meet new friends.
Starting today you can participate in a contest: tell us what kind of plant or flower this is and you might win a free lunch for two. The contest runs until the day that the bulb will burst in bloom, so don’t wait too long to put your name down. The plant/flower is gracing the long table to your left when you enter De Suikertuin in case you wish to see it `live’. E-mail us the answer (or come by).
Our next charity for our quarterly Special for a Cause will be the Red Cross of Aruba. Part of the proceeds of the Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay or the Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon (both AWG. 9,50 per glass) and of the daily Suikertuin Special goes towards this organization, which helps people in need. Your donation will go to the people of Haiti, who are still living in terrible circumstances after the earthquake. So by ordering our daily special with a glass of wine you are killing two birds with one stone.
In this Newsletter we also wish to announce our upcoming Mother’s Day happening: De Suikertuin will be open from 9 am until 3 pm and Mothers will be in the spotlight the entire day from breakfast to tea time. For our special Mother’s Day menus, please view them on our website www.desuikertuin.aw. Reservations are required.
Last but not least is here the recipe for an outstanding risotto. Although the perfect risotto is often thought to be difficult to achieve, Chef Margery explains that it is all in the stirring: “Don’t leave a risotto to bubble away on its own; you have to stand guard and keep on stirring,’’ she says.
Phew, I wanted to tell you about a number of upcoming activities at De Suikertuin, but I believe that this is good enough for now. I’ll keep you posted of new happenings.
I hope to see you on April 28, 30, May 1 and May 9 or any time in between.
