Richard


Taking care of each and every guest; Richard Meijer believes in this traditional approach. In his opinion people should rather visit restaurant of Mevrouw Meijer for its atmosphere and the people than for checking the chef’s movements and tasting the food with a critical eye.

Remco


Remco Van de Lagemaat was wondering what is missing the most from Rotterdam; a bit of Paris. With his wife they spent a weekend in the french capital and observed all the details; tastes, the atmosphere, experiences. That's how they opened Bistrot du Bac.

Marnix


Marnix is Marnix. That's all I heard of the crazy chef from Rotterdam before and this impression didn't change a bit later when I got to know him. He is a main character in Rotterdam's gastro life. He studied business management but dared to change to what he really loves.

Yama


Hiroaki Yamamoto or Yama as everyone calls him started cooking in a DYO way with his brothers and now he manages his own restaurant in Rotterdam. He said the most unusual thing was for him that while Japanese can nod and say yes to everything, dutch will tell their opinion; of course even about his food too.

Michael


Michael Schook can learn a lot from how others live their lives. The chef gets his inspirations from theses everyday explorations and he only needs to be creative to re use them in his work.
