Does anyone of you a fan of any cooking show? One of my favorites is Netflix Final Table. The Final Table is a culinary cook-off or an ambitious cooking competition amongst the most accomplished chefs in the world.
I binge watch the whole show and I was immediately hooked. There is 1 team that I rooted for from the very beginning and that is Alex Haupt and Ash Heeger, I call them the Final Table underdogs and became an instant fan.
Alex Haupt is an Australian born Chef who is living in the Netherlands for years and finally opened a farm to table restaurant last November a month after the show was released.
A fangirl like me got to do what she got to do. So, invited my foodie friends Anne from Anne Travel Foodie and Rafael from Tastecrib to experience this “New Dutch Cuisine” from Chef Alex and we just have to experience his take on food ourselves.
As soon as we entered the restaurant and saw Alex I was star struck and I immediately went fangirling. We were immediately greeted by one of the staffs and offered us a wine to drink and explained us the menu.
We went for the “Let us Feed YOU” which consist of 7 little starters, 1 main and mini desserts.
Our every bite was delicious and an experience of a whole new level Dutch cuisine. One of my favorites was the homemade bread and I didn’t realize that a simple bread can be that good.
Each dish was perfectly balanced, the flavors are extremely wonderful and seem that it is taking you somewhere. It is modern
The 101 Gowrie team is friendly and attentive and knowledgeable about the food they served which is a +10 for me. You can see the passion and love put into the food thus Chef Alex served it himself and explained the dish to us one by one
All in all our dinner that night is absolutely brilliant and no doubt that I will come back again.
