Chiel de Groot

An owner-chef with a passion for modern French cuisine

Chef Chiel de Groot was still young when he discovered his passion for cooking. It didn’t take long before this became his outlet for his creativity. His education to become a specialized chef only fueled his drive and very quickly, at the age of 25, he could officially call himself a chef. As a result of his drive and his passion, he decided to establish the Amused restaurant in 2017 and fine-tune his cooking style. Chiel’s goal is to always create the perfect atmosphere and culinary experience for his guests.

I like the fact that vegetables play an increasingly important role in dishes, as well as the rise in awareness of the origin of ingredients.
