My cooking studio in Amsterdam

Since 1997 I organize cooking workshops in my cooking studio in Amsterdam. Most people book because they have been before or because they have heard good things about me. My style of cooking is refined but simple and the focus is on fresh and good ingredients. The recipes are fun to make but you don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen.
The dining room has a homey feel with art on the walls and the spacious kitchen is well equipped.

You don’t have to share the cooking studio with other groups.

The largest table sits up to 30 persons. If you come with a smaller group, we take some tables out, with a bigger group we place an extra table. The maximum group size is 40.

Buses 18, 21 and 22 al well as tram line 3 stop almost in front and there is a paring garage at 30 meters from my doorstep. Amsterdam Central station is within walking distance.

Many times my guests tell me that it feels like they are in my home, this is the biggest compliment I can imagine.

About Dennis Leeuw

After years of working in several renowned restaurants it was time to start something new. At that time there were no open restaurant kitchens and I missed the contact with the guests.

When I joined the restaurant critic Johannes van Dam to eat for Het Parool, I met many new people in the food business. One of them was Cees Holtkamp, owner of the famous pastry shop here in Amsterdam. When I participated in a patisserie cooking workshop that Cees gave, I knew what I wanted: to have a cooking studio in Amsterdam myself. Until today I love the energy and special atmosphere of having in group in my kitchen. The happy faces at the table and all the compliments when the guests leave at the end of the evening are the best part of my work.
