When respect for ingredients is taken as seriously as the cooking of them, deep, honest flavours shine in every dish that leaves the kitchen. Dutch cuisine is traditionally simple, featuring dishes made from vegetables and a little meat, cooked and presented in an uncomplicated fashion. In this kind of food, every ingredient matters, so it’s no surprise that the growing worldwide concern with the quality and provenance of our food is particularly popular in the nation’s capital.
The farm-to-table concept, a movement promoting the use of locally sourced foods direct from producers, has been embraced by a number of Amsterdam’s leading restaurants. The menus at these venues are based on a simple philosophy: food tastes best when it’s made from local, seasonal ingredients, some of them even grown by the restaurant teams. Don’t miss your chance to taste all the freshness that nature can offer.
