Restaurant De Kas is an eatery that relies on local ingredients and a gorgeous setting to create memorable dining experiences. In 2001, chef and founder Gert Jan Hageman rescued and gave new life to an old greenhouse that was set for demolition. Now the land that surrounds the restaurant provides much of the food for the menu. Most days you will find Hageman in the fields working the soil, planting, seeding, and harvesting. After working for 20 years around “white tiles under fluorescent lighting” in numerous kitchens, the outdoor activities are a welcome change for Hageman. If you’re lucky, the same garden that produced the herbs in your meal will be open for outdoor dining when you visit.
