We have great news! Restaurant Novice will be participating in Proef Amersfoort 2024 this year ! 

We are currently making preparations, so mark these dates in your calendar: from Wednesday, May 8 to Sunday, May 12, 2024 you can find us at the culinary food festival of Amersfoort. 

At Restaurant Novice, it's always probation, which is why we introduce our guests to the pure flavors of Dutch Cuisine. Our dishes contain honest stories and focus on sustainability and collaborations with local producers. We also serve seasonal dishes, with ingredients from our own vegetable garden. 

Those who used to consider entering the monastery first spent a probationary period there as a novice (newcomer). We are continuing that tradition. Together with our chef René Bekker, we will let you taste the most delicious dishes! Together with our students from MBO Amersfoort Hotelschool, we try to contribute to a better world.  

For five days, Proef Amersfoort 2024 will highlight, local culinary talent at the Oliemolenhof. Several restaurants with diverse cuisines will participate, and surprising, high-end and modern world cuisines will be present. The festival promises to offer everything that will bring spring fever to life. 

The core values of Proef Amersfoort are: Experience, Taste, Meet! Culinary enjoyment and encounters are paramount. And we, at Restaurant Novice, are very curious to see what Proef 2024 has to offer!
