René Koelman - Taste of Amsterdam

Chef & owner René Koelman - Bourgondisch Lifestyle

René grew up in a real dairy family. His grandfather, Willem Kaptein, laid the foundation for Kaptein B.V., who once started in Beverwijk. René’s parents have also worked in this company and from an early age he has slowly grown into this. Later René also made a serious career within this company, where he gained a lot of experience in buying and selling cheese. Entrepreneurship, independence and creativity are in his blood. Partly because of this, he started Bourgondisch Lifestyle in Beverwijk in 2006.
