My name is Eric. Entrepreneur, teacher scriptwriting and a mentor of young technological start-ups. My passion is to help people and inspiring them to achieve their dreams. For over ten years I have owned and managed two very popular restaurants in the heart of Amsterdam. After selling lots of lobster, great steaks and wine, I’ve sold these companies. Because of all these experiences I’ve gained during that adventure I want to inspire people and show them the Dutch kitchen. Even something simple as making a Stroopwaffle have some hidden tricks. For example: fresh vanilla and using dark brown local beer. Don't worry, we will teach you! Instead of using milk, we use a Dutch ‘Dark-brow’ Dubbel beer, to give it even more flavour.
Did you know The Dutch have a rich tradition of drinking beer. Around 1700 it was considered healthier (and safer) to drink beer instead than water? While the dough is rising, we’ll present you a small beer tasting where we will teach you more about Dutch ‘Double’ beer.
