Taste of Okura in Amsterdam

 

We hear that Hotel Okura Amsterdam in December will open a culinary center where guests can learn to prepare the Okura’s chefs’ dishes themselves. In addition, sommeliers will explain how to pair wine and sake with the food. Nice Touch: Taste of Okura is on the hotel’s lowest floor and uses the latest hi-tech Miele equipment. There’s also a Wine Room, a shop and a trendy lounge where the self-made food can be enjoyed. Tjeerd Blom, formerly of restaurants Greetje (Amsterdam), Aujourd’hui and Christophe, has been recruited specially for the new center. Workshops will be organized for Japanese (traditional and teppanyaki) and French as well as international cuisine. Don’t worry if you’re a foodie newbie or a pro, there are all sorts of levels of classes for everyone.

The culinary center can also be hired exclusively for use by groups, business meetings or parties, in which case specially tailored workshops can be organized.

Have a client who may be interested? Contact Wouter van Poppel at 011-31-20-678-7781 or [email protected] and be sure to book them into “The Suite” at the hotel; it’s 5,400 square feet in size and has two master bedrooms.
