Eating out at home has never been so booming as in corona time, for understandable reasons. We get takeout and work overtime in our kitchens to make those plates as beautiful as the chef does. Also booming : the private chef at home. It takes all the work off your hands, so all you have to do is sit back.
5 x a private chef at your home
Alba Private Dining
Chef Joost van den Branden won Herman’s Pop-up Restaurant (the TV program of chef Herman den Blijker) not so long ago. He has been behind the pots and pans for years and, for example, gives cooking workshops and helps set up restaurants
After all the catering misery due to the lockdown, he started Alba Private Dining . With this he gives high-end private dinners at home. Because that is what Joost likes to do most: provide people with an unforgettable tasty afternoon or evening. And how wonderful is it that you can do that at home?
Oh and that name? Alba is a reference to the Italian city of the same name, known for its white truffle. So that’s also kind of what you can expect from Joost’s cooking.
Private chef Jeffrey de Vries already ran a pop-up restaurant in De Meern (Utrecht), now he can be booked for private dinners at home from two people. His Instagram feed is full of photos of the most delicious, most colorful dishes.
He is also regularly hired by famous names to showcase his cooking skills, just take a peek on his Insta.
Cheffrey, eh Jeffrey serves three courses from € 75 per person, tailored to your wishes. Look for more information on his website .
