MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

A veritable institution, De Librije has held three Michelin stars since 2004. Chef Jonnie Boer and his partner Thérèse are the driving and inspiring forces behind the strong evolution of Dutch cuisine.

Sustainable regional produce, a strong focus on vegetables and inventive techniques are all common modern features that can be attributed in part to chef Jonnie Boer. He combines all these elements in his highly personal cuisine in which the flavours are expressive, and every dish is memorable. He makes the core ingredient shine in a complex interplay of flavours, assuring intensity and depth using fermentation and gentle acidity.

De Librije is a remarkable restaurant where every detail is just right, from the glass-covered courtyard, once part of an old prison, to the wine selections of Thérèse Boer and the culinary masterpieces created by chef Jonnie. Sublime!

The chef's commitment
25 years ago we already had our own garden and greenhouse – and we were also working with farmers in the area. To me that is very logical, not a trend at all. I forage for wild ingredients almost all year round. Chefs used to get everything from France but, in the Netherlands, we have really nice produce.
