On December 3, Koppert Cress and Gastronomixs jointly organized the sixth edition of the Tweetjam. During this cooking session, with main topic ‘Spitskool’ (Oxheart Cabbage), a new world record was set: 103 different preparations of Oxheart Cabbage. "A very special day”, according to both organizers. It is remarkable to see so many chefs working together in good synergy, sharing inspiration and knowledge, stimulating each other to reach beautiful results. The TweetJam and record attempt are a perfect platform to do so.” 

Upon arrival, the 65 chefs were separated into a morning and afternoon team. One group to start with the record attempt, the other to begin with the TweetJam. With the record attempt the chefs prepared over 100, previously selected basic preparations with the typical Dutch Oxheart Cabbage.

For the record all were prepared on the spot and registered by two professional culinairy photographers. The record attempt was an initiative to prove that it is possible, also with ordinairy ingredients, to cook in a distinguishing manner and that sharing knowledge stimulates synergy. At the end in four sessions the chefs set the world record with 103 different preparations.

During the TweetJam the chefs were occupied jamming and tweeting (#tweetjam6), and the strong interaction with the sponsors resulted in remarkable creations. All jam actions were registered by Food Reporter in a live online broadcast.
