Your Personal Chef


Private Chef Adrienne

Adrienne started cooking at an early age under the tutelage of her Polish born mother –an excellent home cook. She grew up in Amsterdam at a time of few gourmet restaurants, when private dinning was nonexistent and catering was rare. Even as a young woman she was drawn to the kitchen. She started cooking for her family and it didn’t take long for friends to insist she do the same for them.

She worked constantly to improve her culinary skills and developed
a sophisticated taste for fine food. She discovered that through food she could make people feel good – with themselves and with others.
Food and cooking were a way of expressing affection and a way to enjoy life and even at a young age her home became a haven for food lovers.

As her passion for cooking grew, Adrienne decided her next step was to gain additional experience and train in top class restaurants. She did so in notable establishments: with George Blanc in L’Ancienne Auberge in Vonnas (3 stars); Toscanini and Halvemaan (1 star) in Amsterdam; Karel V (1 star) in Utrecht; Le Dauphin in Paris; and I Pupi in Palermo.

Adrienne has a natural talent to match the right food to the right person and occasion, and her cooking skills run from home comfort food to traditional to highly contemporary gourmet. Whatever the style of cuisine, she demonstrates innovation and creativity. She understands instinctively how her guests prefer to dine and how to please their palate.

As her reputation spread, Adrienne was invited to teach in cookery schools and she continues to do so while also conducting private cooking lessons in her home and NYC. With over 20 years of international cooking experience as a freelance caterer and chef for hire, today she is considered one of the most accomplished and recognized international gourmet chefs. In 2000 she started her own catering company THE COOKERY in Amsterdam, for private dinners and catering, and in 2008 she opened up her beautiful traditional, renovated house and kitchen for Private Dining.
