Head chef of d'Vijff Vlieghen is Sander Klaasen. Sander worked before in well-known restaurants like Beaubourg and Breitner, both in Amsterdam and de Marienhof in Amersfoort. At Lute Restaurant Sander served as a sous-chef, before joining d'Vijff Vlieghen. Sander likes to surprise his guests and make them curious about the ingredients which are on the plate. Sander works with products from the season, where possible organic and biological, but always with respect towards nature. The ultimate goal is to make d'Vijff Vlieghen a favorite venue for both local and international guests, by combining modern cuisine with the unique atmosphere of the past.
