The Alliance Gastronomique is a collaboration of skilled, driven and creative cuisiniers and restorers of 35 leading restaurants in the Netherlands and Belgium.
The Alliance Gastronomique is the undisputed quality brand for culinary experience at the highest level, in terms of food, wine and hospitality, without affecting the identity of the individual restaurants.
The history of Alliance Gastronomique
The Alliance Gastronomique was founded in 1967 by nineteen Dutch restorers in response to the disturbing taste flattering at the time, a lack of professional training and a lack of quality culinary products. An innovative and unprecedented initiative for the Netherlands. After all, the Netherlands was not known for its high-quality food culture. Especially the snack bar and the simple restaurant were popular. Food at a culinary level, such as in Belgium and France, was still in its infancy and was a real feature for the majority of the population.
That the collaboration was a success was all due to the innovative vision, the faith and the perseverance of the initiators.
The Alliance Gastronomique is now 41 years old, making it the longest-established culinary partnership in Europe.
