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.
For me, cooking is...
For me cooking is peace .....when I step in the kitchen it feels like stepping into a very comfortable space. All things around me stop! peace at last

I really learned how to cook at my second apprentice year. English Michael Redding had his own restaurant and taught me all the tricks of the trade
A role model in the kitchen is...

A cooking secret...

Chef Patrick's reviews
EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE. Patrick and Ivette his wife (dynamic duo) came to the air bnb for a celebration dinner for my parents vow renewal and my family and I were blown away by the first class service and the food is the best you will have. Our glasses and bellies were never empty and portions were just right. My family and I enjoyed Patrick's cuisine so much that we went to Amuse Patrick's restaurant because we could not get enough. We got to see Patrick there again and we felt like family. The experience was memorable and beyond great. It is a must in my opinion, honestly I cannot wait to go back to Aruba just so I can have that experience again. Thank you so much Patrick and Ivette for making our family's celebration that much better.
