Get to know me better
Always happy to cook and to please the guest ! Will go above and beyond to realize the set goals !
Went to culinary school in Holland where i worked with several of the best Dutch chefs ( Jannis Brevet 'Interscaldes' 3 Michelin stars and Jacob-Jan Boerma 'De Leest' 3 Michelin stars. Went working and traveling for a while, then ended up in Aruba where I worked as executive chef in 'Flying Fishbone' for 8 years. After this period I started in 2010 my own French style restaurant 'Amuse' .......This beautiful wooden restaurant over the water on a pier sadly burnt down in the beginning of 2019 but at the end of 2019 I managed to build up two new restaurants both American style BBQ smoke houses in here I sell home made pastrami, smoked Brisket etc. I also make my own fresh sausages ........these I also deliver to hotels , 'Ritz-Carlton' is one of my clients of sausages and pastrami.
