CHEFS®EVOLUTION is postponed
It’s Revolution Time in 2022 – the jubilee edition!

The fifth edition of CHEFS®EVOLUTION, the Dutch Avant-garde Cuisine Festival, was supposed to take place on Sunday 12th and Monday 13th September 2021. With an incredible pain in our gastronomic hearts, we have had to decide to move this anniversary edition again. CHEFS®EVOLUTION will take place in September 2022.

Jonnie en Thérèse Boer:

“Dear all. Four editions of CHEFS®EVOLUTION. Each and every one of them have been really beautiful. It was a lot of fun to do. Unfortunately, the fifth one has to be postponed until next year. There are too many obstacles which prevent us from organizing a proper event. We feel very sorry.
A lot of partners were committed to the event. We are devastated, but we simply cannot continue the organization of the event.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we are forced to cut corners. But we told ourselves that we will not diminish our event in any aspect. We have had four magnificent editions of CHEFS®EVOLUTION and our Jubilee edition should surpass them all. Therefore, we are postponing it for a year. Our fifth edition will be a banger.

It is going to be more amazing than we have planned so far, that is for sure. The fifth edition will be on the 4th and 5th of September 2022. Please save the date. All of the chefs who would be in the line-up for this year, have already confirmed their participance for next year.

It will be marvelous. Thank you for your understanding and patience. We will see you next year.”

Daniel Humm, Eleven Madison Park, New York, America, Best of the Best – World’s 50 Best

BOERenmarkt XL
At the ‘BOERenmarkt XL’, visitors can discover the various artisan farmers and (wine) suppliers of Jonnie and Thérèse Boer. In collaboration with Alliance Gastronomique & Dutch Cuisine, we provide a diversity of dishes. All of them inspired by the various regions of the Netherlands. You can also have a wine partners pour you a glass, which will match with your dish. Best of all, each restaurant brings its own farmer. They introduce the public in an easy and accessible way to the products and ingredients which the Netherlands has to offer through beautiful and honest dishes with matching wines.

Unique cooking battles
Just like previous editions, unique cooking competitions will be organized. Such as the Hill Billy Contest and the VanDrie Group Veal Battle. Candidates will be chosen on the basis of a pre-selection. These candidates set off with a map of the wider region in their hands, on which Jonnie Boer has ticked a number of places. At these locations, the candidates will collect ingredients that they will eventually use in the menu and then present them to an international jury consisting of top chefs.

Ticket sales will be opened at a later stage. If you would like to receive a notification, please leave your email address at
