The Cookery

Gourmet Chef Adrienne Eisma welcomes you in her home on in a renivated Gentleman’s House on the Valeriusstraat in the upscale “Oud Zuid” district. As you enter you are greeted by the celebrated chef and her hostess and guided into the livingroom where a dining table is set perfectly like photography taken from one of Martha Stewart’s interior books. The livingroom that looks more like a salon, is decorated with black and white family portraits and art. It overlooks the inner garden, as if it needed any more romance. Adrienne’s livingroom is perfect for intimate or private dinners. Each course is delicious and composed to perfection. They serve wine almost a volonte and after dessert coffee and tea are served with friandises and homemade cinnamon biscuits. It’s the prefect place if you want to enjoy a gastronomical dinner but without the fuss of a regular restaurant. Menu’s are French/Italian inspired with the use of local and seasoal produce. If you would like to use your own liviningroom to entertain Adrienne also caters on site! La vie est belle! The Cookery by Adrienne Eisma, Valeriusstraat 250 HS, 1075 GL Amsterdam. Dinner, Catering and Private Dining upon reservation. $$$
