In collaboration with Dutch Cuisine, we approach an (Alliance Gastronomique) restaurant per province, a total of twelve restaurants. These chefs will prepare the most delicious little dishes. The perfect treat of culinary creations and matching wines for a great price.

Unique cooking contest
Just like the previous edition, unique cooking contests will be part of the programme. The participants, selected beforehand through pre-registration, will explore the wider region, using a map on which a few places have been marked by Jonnie Boer. The participants will collect ingredients at these locations that they will use in their menu, with the intention to win over an international top chef jury with their dishes.

Tickets for the cooking demonstrations can be reserved via and Theater De Spiegel. Admission tickets cost €55.00 for one day and €95.00 for two days, per visitor. There is no entrance fee for the BOERenmarkt XL.
