Le Début The Hague

Supervised by a professional chef-instructor and a maître d’hôtel, our students prepare our menu with fresh ingredients and serve them with care and attention. Sustainability is embedded in our institution’s DNA, and this is reflected in our changing menus, which feature a surprising choice of food and beverages. We want to create a meaningful and real experience for our students. That’s why we give them the best possible preparation for their future careers by closely following the latest trends in the industry.

Because we agree with the Dutch Cuisine Vision and 5 Principles to make “tasty, healthy and sustainable food more appealing and accessible and because it is good for our economy and for the planet”, we feel it is important to embrace those principles and use them as a guide.
