    My odes they are distinctive
    Giving all I’ve got
    Full of stuff and nonsense
    Full of tommy rot

    Quote: He’s also been painting for four years—a passion that became increasingly important during lockdown as he began renting a dedicated studio space.

    Therefore, De Witte felt confident enough to go to the museum with his conviction. When he reached out about the possible error, the institution asked for evidence supporting his claim.

    “I made a PowerPoint together with my wife that showed how Van Gogh painted the garlic with his line work and compared it with another painting in which he painted onions,” De Witte told Artnet News in an email. “And I made a video in which I compared different garlic varieties and onions. I made an overlay drawing on the garlic bulbs in the Van Gogh painting to show that the [distinctive] lines he made actually show the cloves of the garlic.”

    “The dish is poached red cabbage in an oven roasted garlic bouillon, a crème of smoked garlic, red cabbage coulis, red cabbage powder, and a vinaigrette with absinthe, lemon balm and tarragon,” he said. “As soon as the vinaigrette comes in contact with the red cabbage components, the colors start to fade, just as the red/blue pigments in Van Gogh’s paintings.”


    (The Van Gogh Museum’s online catalogue entry for Red Cabbages and Garlic, notes that “The tablecloth is now greyish-blue but was originally purple.”)

    De Witte pairs his Van Gogh-themed dish with a beer brewed with absinthe, the artist’s drink of choice. “Our guests,” he added, “are in love.”
