Micheline Star Revelation Netherlands 2022

On 30 May 2022, Michelin presented the 2022 selection of the MICHELIN Guide Netherlands at the DeLaMar theater in Amsterdam. The new selection features 520 restaurants, including 117 MICHELIN Stars, 112 Bib Gourmand, and 11 MICHELIN Green Stars.

During the ceremony, 16 restaurants received Michelin star(s) highlighting the creativity, refinement, and resilience of the Dutch Gastronomical cuisine.

  • 3 new 2-Star restaurants
  • 10 new 1-Star restaurants
  • 3 new Green Star restaurants
  • 1 Young Chef Award
  • 1 Sommellerie Award

In this year’s ceremony, the new Micheline Green Star restaurants were introduced to the audience in the sustainable gastronomy selection. 3 restaurants received a green star for their efforts to promote and bring sustainable practises to the Dutch gastronomical scene.

Hotelschool The Hague was involved in the ceremony as 30 students served and prepared the dishes for 850 guests. Our food truck Streats prepared the appetizer "gingerbread with leaked yogurt and dried strawberries" for the ceremony and assisted the chefs from Restaurant De Kas and Bolenius with the preparation of two dishes.

Being able to attend and assist the Michelin event was such a great experience! I have a big passion for F&B myself, and studying at HTH comes with so many opportunities! Before I knew Monday, I was handing out 3L bottles of Champagne to the chefs on the stage, definitely something I would never forget

About the Michelin Guide

The MICHELIN Guide is the most prominent distinction that can be awarded to restaurants for their excellent service and quality of cuisine. According to the MICHELIN Guide regulations, a restaurant can receive up to three stars. After the big award ceremony on Monday, the Netherlands counted two restaurants with three stars, 21 with two stars, and 94 with one star.

The prestigious MICHELIN stars were first established in the late 1950s by tire manufacturer Michelin. What was his intention? To promote car use by guiding motorists to quality restaurants and hotels in its Michelin guide. According to the guide, one-star establishments meant that the cuisine is well worth stopping for. Two stars meant that the food is of high quality, while three stars meant that the cuisine is exceptional and the restaurant in question is a unique travel destination not to be missed.

Being able to attend this ceremony and help behind the scenes was such a special and unique experience. I am really grateful to be part of this event and meet in person some of the greatest chefs in the country.
