BRUT172, NAYOLIE & HEEMSTEDE CASTLE

Culinary entrepreneur Carsten Klint has a nose for gastronomic hotspots, new culinary initiatives and tasty addresses in the Benelux. Every Friday he is a guest in the podcast '1.2.tje MET YVES. The GYGS' where he gives away his 3 best dinner tips. This week they are Brut172, Nayolie and Heemstede Castle.

Brut 172

He cooked the stars of heaven for years behind the stove of his restaurant in Maastricht and last year he was one of the participating Michelin chefs during Masters of LXRY in Restaurant M40, but in the meantime new adventures beckoned for star chef Hans van Wolde. At the beginning of this year, Hans opened the doors of his new restaurant Brut172 in the village of Reijmerstok in Limburg: an exceptional experience at a high level. Carsten: “Brut172 is one of my tips this week. Hans uses a lot of vegetables and local products. It had only been open for a week and then had to close again due to corona. Very unfortunate, but Brut172 will be open again from June 1!”.

In Brut172, a dish becomes a compelling story, forgotten memories come back to life and 'delicious' takes on a new meaning. Brut is back to the source. Real, honest, primal. An exceptional experience, 172 meters above sea level. The most beautiful products can be found in the Mergelland. The most beautiful meat, the best breads, fresh vegetables and herbs, straight from the land. Bred, baked, grown, planted and harvested by real professionals. People with love and passion. People who literally get their hands dirty every day so they can put something tasty on the table. And that's how it should be. Back to basic. Where meat and fish used to dominate our diet, vegetables now play an increasingly important role. The emphasis in the dishes is therefore increasingly on vegetables and much less on meat and fish.

Brut172 is open again, so if you want to reserve a table you can here!

Nayolie

Chef Kelvin Lin names his cooking style progressiveasian which arose during the experiences he gained in the gastronomic world in Singapore. In 2013 he opened a very modest lunchroom in Voorschoten named after his wife and at the beginning of this year the lunchroom became a real restaurant. According to GaultMillau, Nayolie is the best Asian restaurant of 2020: “His never-ending search for beautiful combinations, in which he sometimes gives familiar flavors a completely new texture, surprises and impresses,” according to the jury.

Carsten: “He was previously the winner of the Gouden Ladle of Algemeen Dagblad in 2019. And now he goes as Nayolie one table reopen restaurant. A table for four people where you sit 1,5 meters apart. So you have the entire restaurant or terrace to yourself. The seven-course menu without drinks costs 125 euros per person, which I think is fair. Kelvin has also delivered a lot in the region over the past 2,5 months. Nayolie is also very popular with other top chefs, for example, Soenil Bahadoer from two-star restaurant De Lindehof in Nuenen got all the way in the car to eat there, because everyone was talking about it. It is a small business that aims for exclusivity and works with top products such as Wagyu A5 and bluefin tuna.

Heemstede Castle

Carsten: “My last tip is Heemstede Castle in Houten, municipality of Utrecht. The restaurant reopened in February after a major renovation. There is a very young chef, Ollie Schuiling, who has worked in recent years as a kitchen manager at the three-star restaurant Andreas Caminada in Schloss Schauenstein in Switzerland. This restaurant is one of the best in the world and chef Andreas Caminada was awarded a Mentor Award by Michelin in January. Ollie is a real talent, but he also had to close again a month after reopening (due to corona). I attended the opening lunch after the renovation and it was really excellent, everyone was very enthusiastic.
