Taste of Amsterdam


Taste of Amsterdam returned to the Amstelpark last spring on the 31st of May – 3rd of June 2019 to celebrate its 11th edition! This was reason enough for a culinary celebration within the gastronomic heart of our capital city. New names, known restaurants and innovative bars; Amsterdam is growing to be more delicious each year.

More than 35 restaurants served their signature dishes, over 35 well-known chefs showed their skills and more than 150 workshops, tastings and masterclasses were given. This year, we introduced our brand-new Chef’s Table, sponsored by titlesponsor NEFF. A food experience like none before at Taste of Amsterdam. Up to 30 seats granted a spot right where the magic happens. Prestigious chefs with Michelin star experience cooking right in front of you. Just to name a few of the chefs, we had the privilege to welcome Ron Blaauw, Soenil Bahadoer, Julius Jaspers, Schilo van Coevorden, Alain Caron, Alex Haupt, Edwin Vinke and six French chefs that have 10-Michelin Stars combined.

Another feature that was welcomed back is the famous NEFF Chef’s Theatre, sponsored once again by NEFF. More than 250 foodies could attend the theatre to really learn about the taste of well-known chefs. Amongst others, Bart van Berkel, Alain Caron, Ayt Erdogan, Boaz Peled, Jacques Pourcel, Mark Vaessen, Slava Nazaryan, Thomas Kooijman, Tim Golsteijn and many more showed their skills which amazed the visitors.

We welcomed back our title sponsor, NEFF, which is a company that supplies kitchen appliances on a premium level. They focused on our four amazing features such as the NEFF Chef’s Table, NEFF Chef’s Theatre, NEFF Kookschool and the NEFF Kinderkeuken. Even the smallest chefs amongst us stepped into the kitchen to learn all there is to know about cooking.

Many creative cocktails were made, spicy craft beers were served and full oaky wines were poured into real glass! Drinks were flowing when the music started and the night turned into a tasty party.

This eleventh edition of Taste Amsterdam was more delightful than ever, and we are looking forward to Taste Amsterdam 2020! Taste 2020 will take place from 29th of May – 1st of June and of course again in our beautiful Amstelpark. Keep an eye on the Taste website because the Early Turkey ticket sales will start sooner than you would expect.
