Loenen aan de Vecht, 7 February 2024 – Andre Gerrits has not only revamped the interior of his Michelin-starred restaurant ‘t Amsterdammertje but has also made a unique addition to the art collection, featuring works by the talented Michel van den Born. In this harmonious fusion, the worlds of culinary refinement and artistic experience come together.
The renewed ambiance promises guests an experience where attention to detail and refinement go hand in hand, making ‘t Amsterdammertje not only a gastronomic delight but also an artistic oasis for the senses.
“Trust” invites an inner journey, with a special connection to the roots of Geneviève, the wife of chef André Gerrits, hailing from the Antilles. The artwork, inspired by graceful flamingos, symbolizes embracing emotions, finding balance, and trusting in the new life. The deeper symbol of an egg with protective wings represents faith in a radiant future, also echoing the iconic dish of ‘t Amsterdammertje, “het eitje” (the little egg).
“Daphne” narrates the Greek mythological story of the nymph in a contemporary way. The golden torso and pink angel wings symbolize the interplay between beauty and nature.
Chef André Gerrits, “These artworks add a new dimension to ‘t Amsterdammertje, where taste and imagination come together, but also create a beautiful connection between culinary and artistic creations.”
