Want to learn online from your greatest heroes? It is possible with Grootmeesters: a platform that offers masterclasses given by the very best. Learn to cook with Jonnie Boer, write with Ronald Giphart, act with Monic Hendrickx, make music, discover works of art and much more. Culy signed up – of course! – in for the masterclasses of Jonnie and Thérèse.
Online masterclasses by Jonnie Boer
The concept, the style, the atmosphere: you immediately know that Grootmeesters was inspired by the successful American platform Masterclass. For example, the American version includes cooking lessons from Gordon Ramsay and Thomas Keller . And who do you ask as the grand master of the low countries? Three-star chef Jonnie Boer of De Librije of course! He teaches you everything about cooking at the highest level, his wife Thérèse tells you which wine goes with it.
This is done in mini-lectures of no more than 20 minutes each. A series of online masterclasses consists of 14 to 30 lessons, so in total you will be busy for 2 to 5 hours. You follow the lessons wherever and whenever you want. You will also receive a workbook with assignments.
Culy discovers… cooking class from Jonnie Boer
Jonnie and Thérèse give a total of 29 lessons, starting with the creation of a dish. Cooking classes and wine classes alternate, so that you can learn everything about oysters one day, for example, and learn how to choose a matching wine pairing in the next class.
The lessons of Jonnie and Thérèse are also short: they vary from 2.06 minutes to about 15 minutes. So you can also safely lock yourself at home for a day and binge watch them one after the other .
Some lessons are in interview form, for others Thérèse is behind the (wine) bar or you can look directly at the fingers of Jonnie and his chef Nelson Tanate in the kitchen.
The chef explains, for example, how a dish such as pike-perch with apple syrup was created, which (smart!) cooking techniques are used and what they all pull out of the cupboard so that that plate of food in front of you suddenly becomes an experience.

What did we think of the lessons of Grandmasters?
We are excited! The camera work is beautiful, we hang on to the lips of the grand masters and we have gained a battery of new knowledge and got to know interesting Dutch products. We also really like the combination between lessons about cooking and wine: in normal workshops this is almost always separated.
Okay, maybe one point of criticism: it makes us really hungry…
A series of lectures costs €69 per Grandmaster. If you want unlimited access to all master classes, you pay € 9.99 per month. Visit the Grandmasters website for more information about the content and offer of the masterclasses.
