The Dutch Foodie at Funkin for Funding Charity event

Our masterclasses are taught in a domestic kitchen, so you can be confident that you will be able to easily recreate what you’ve learned at home.

When we come to your home, we will discuss the details with you beforehand and bring everything needed. We will even do the washing up before we leave!

We are also happy to discuss flowers, music, plates, glassware, waiters, a cocktail bar etc. to ensure your event is extra special, relaxed and enjoyable for you and your guests

There are no set rules. But of course we can provide sample set menus for you to choose from. And if you get lost in a sea of possibilities, we are here to guide you to what is perfect for you.

It’s YOUR party. The Dutch Foodie can help you to make it effortless and unforgettable.
