He's a chef, but you could also call him an inspiring thinker. An innovator. A warrior. A team player. A Dutch master. We're talking about Joris Bijdendijk, Michelin-star chef of RIJKS*, the restaurant at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. "We need one another to form a whole. It takes quality products to make quality dishes."
"Keep working towards your goal and don't be distracted by other things along the way." We spoke with Peter Goossens (Hof van Cleve***) about the strength of his restaurant, but also about creativity and hard work.
What does it feel like to earn a third star? We spoke with Jannis Brevet (Inter Scaldes***) about the three stars that his restaurant now owns. "It never became an obsession but it was an ambition and an aim."

During their traineeship in Tokyo, Rudi van Beylen and Filip Claeys saw how selfish their Japanese colleagues could be. Fish of lesser quality is exported and the best fish is kept for themselves. Filip, who grew up in a fishing family, immediately saw how crazy it is to send second-rate fish to the other side of the world, especially to a country on the North Sea.
Vegetarian and vegan cuisine is not always popular with chefs, as it requires considerable research and offers limited options. "Three years ago, I noticed that it had become a source of irritation for many of the chefs in my area when yet another vegetarian order was placed," explains chef Friedjof Kempenaar from Rotterdam, the Netherlands. "They were not particularly interested. On the other hand, I knew lots of vegetarians who often complained that they were appeased with a goats cheese salad far too often."
