Culinary top events by Sofitel
Inspired by l’art de vivre, (the art of living) the idea was born to organize an event which should be unique and memorable. A moment where people could truly enjoy an exceptional experience, gathered together in good company, sharing excellent food, wine and culture.
Great chefs (Dompteurs des Fournaux) rewarded with Michelin stars, are artists in gastronomy. They excel in their field like other famous artists. You travel with them on a journey of discovery of flavors. Their passion and soul are the secrets that you will experience in their culinary presentation - when you look for it!
But gastronomy offers more. Gastronomy means conviviality in a world where every moment has to be efficient. It brings people and cultures closer together.
It also offers a nestling ground for creativity, understanding and co-operation. Last but not least, gastronomy and other art expressions reinforce and inspire each other.
The initiative was taken by the management of hotel Sofitel the Grand Amsterdam and Lise Goeman Borgesius, author and culinary journalist. Their mutual goal was to combine know how, creativity and facilities to organize an event where culture, food, wines and art are united.
During these events the chefs will prepare their signature dishes. Private gourmands as well as companies will be able to participate in this wonderful gastronomical experience.
Sofitel is organizing this unique gathering of star chefs: to stimulate and to surprise the taste buds of the attendees in an authentic way.
Lise Goeman Borgesius-Timmer
Lise Goeman Borgesius is something of a rarity in the Dutch world of cooking. A bird of paradise among culinary experts.
Her work is characterised by two things: simplicity and passion. Her books contain recipes that you can and want to prepare immediately. And they always contain daring combinations. Her journalistic stories are almost poetic and written from the heart.
A symbiosis of passion, emotion and reality is important to her. Her participation during gastronomic jury's is a real pleasure and shows that she looks for the boundaries of flavours because it has to be stimulating, caressing and exciting for her.
Passion is not a sales argument but a way of life for Lise. Her French way of living.. Her stories about food, her recipes and her other activities, such as organising high level culinary events and her personal contacts with the most well known International Chefs are a logical result of this attitude to life. And at the same time...she loves the most 'La simplicité de la vie!' Passion, a heart for the cause, that sums up Lise
