Experience
the taste generators
of the Netherlands

Dutch cuisine is creative, varied and sustainable, and therefore deserves appreciation.
Dutch Cuisine is placing the Dutch food culture firmly back upon the map.

‘As a chef, you are a kind of change agent: you can inspire others and let them taste new things’

Niven Kunz, owner/head chef of restaurant Niven, Rijswijk

”Cooking with more vegetables is sustainable, healthy and a creative challenge. The possibilities are endless. Besides, the mark-up is higher too’

Luc Kusters, SVH Master Chef and owner/head chef of restaurant Bolenius, Amsterdam

Cooking according to the Dutch Cuisine criteria is sincere cooking: food to be proud of.

With plenty of vegetables, vegetable proteins and season-fixed products, Dutch Cuisine dishes are beneficial for people, animals and nature. For the present, and for generations to come.

Our 5 Principles

Our Ambassadors

Strong together

Placing the Dutch food culture on the map in a firm and sustainable manner is something that cannot be done alone – it takes collaboration; for instance with chefs and restaurants. But also with other individuals and organisations who influence our eating habits; from manufacturers to wholesale suppliers, and from policymakers to consumers. This diversity is reflected in the composition of the management, and among the ambassadors of Dutch Cuisine, but also in partnerships such as Green Deal, Eten op School (Food at School), and the Green Protein Alliance. It is solely by joining forces and entering into partnerships within all the links of the food chain, that we can genuinely optimise the sustainability of our food consumption.

Hollands op
zijn lekkerst

Between 14 and 25 November 2016, approximately 400 of Albron’s corporate restaurants took part in ‘Hollands op zijn lekkerst’ (Dutch at its most delicious): a campaign in conjunction with Dutch Cuisine. The menu comprised dishes that were prepared according to the Dutch Cuisine philosophy. Recipe cards by Dutch Cuisine chefs Marco Poldervaart, Christian Weij and Bas Cloo provided inspiration for over 100,000 guests who visited the restaurant during this period. A culinary competition, with the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes, rounded the proceedings off nicely. Dutch Cuisine chefs also hosted a number of workshops in several Albron corporate restaurants, with Marco Poldervaart and Bas Cloo conjuring up some delightful dishes for their guests, together with the chefs from Albron.
