What we do
Unique Culinary Tours
An event can only be successful if it is a perfect-fit with the group and the occasion. The design of each event is a creative process of fitting and matching. Finding the right flavours. In that we like to go beyond the standard. We aim to inspire and surprise.
We know you have enough on your plate, 24 hours in a day simply never is enough. Working with ADFT means getting to check off all your to do’s for your event. We will take care of it. Each step of the way, including the on-sight hosting during your event.
Our local partners are professionals. They are passionate about what they make and what they do. Only the best is good enough, choosing local, social and sustainable as much as possible. That is why they are the stars of our events.
Who we are
Founder Amsterdam Delicious
Matching the right people, food, drinks and atmosphere with a group and occasion. The right match means our guests are having an amazing evening and at the same time, sometimes even without them noticing it, they get inspired. They get affected by the passion of the partners matched to the event. When chefs talk about their dish or a brewer about their brew, when their enthusiasm shows. It works. It inspires. Makes everybody happy. And that’s when I’m happy.
It doesn’t even sound like a job. But anyway. When I’m off, on my bike on the dikes in Noord and Waterland, or in Oost on my way to ‘t Nieuwe Diep. Then I am also very, very happy.
Velox Bikes | Raaf & Ys
Bikes & Tours
“Life is an adventure. Especially on the vintage bikes of Velox. Restoring those classic bikes, bringing them back to life is great. Inviting people to ride them is even greater. Seeing people smile, finding their inner-child on our bikes while cruising around with us in the amazing Amsterdam-Noord, that’s true happiness!” Raaf and Ys share funny, interesting and inspiring stories with you of (and with) the people in Noord. Explore, learn, discover, have fun and you will get inspired!
Raaf likes to share a secret with you. A hidden gem just outside Amsterdam. A place without cars, only grass, birds and cows. Poppendammergauw. If you learn how to pronounce it, he might bring you there…
Carola: ‘While Amsterdam Delicious fills your stomach with wonderful local delicacies, I fill your mind with cultural and historical stories through which you will get an understanding of what this city really is about.’ We can’t think of a better way to describe our connection. The way Carola shares the stories of our city makes you always remember them. It’s warm, passionate and honest. The warm sun and smiley faces make her happy, well we see that a lot when Carola is part of our tours.
Another little piece of happiness to you from Carola, with love: The Jewish bride of Rembrandt.. “WOW! What a Master, what an artist. Every time I see it, this 400 year old Masterpiece, it brings me shivers down my spine!”
Kok op Stelten | Mirjam van de Donk
Caterer & Chef
What makes Mirjam & her amazing team tick: “When not just the client, but also the whole team is happy and content! We love working hard together as a team creating something special and unique for our clients. Amazing food as well as smooth logistics, a great atmosphere and a smiling, welcoming team.” That is Kok op Stelten.
When Kok op Stelten is involved, you just know everything will be perfect. Together we create unique concepts and tailor-made menus working with local and seasonal products.
Mirjam’s favorites in Amsterdam: her boat and the all-time favorite theatre festival de Parade.
Two Chefs Brewing | Sanne & Martijn
The Two Chefs are part of the team because of their amazing, creative, delicious brews ánd because we love you to meet these fun, young beer brewers. Their key to success: have fun in what you do every day and enjoy making an amazing product. It is their flavors and their design, good beer they enjoy together with friends.
When Two Chef is part a tour or event it means great fun, interesting tastings, good stories, creative pairings with food and lots and lots of laughs.
Their favorite places in Amsterdam are on the ferry to Noord (on the way to their brewery) and Stadscafé Van Mechelen, the first café with Two Chefs beer on draft.

‘Finding the right tone and stories to make people happy and inspired.’ That’s what keeps Karen loving her job so much. As a travel guide she travels the world, but Amsterdam is her home. And she likes to make you feel at home in her home. Karen is a super enthusiastic guide, she will make you love her favorite city just as much as she does. Or more. Together with Amsterdam Delicious we create unique tours, by surprising and inspiring our guests with the stories of creative and passionate entrepreneurs from Amsterdam.
She recommends you to visit the Westerpark when in town. A lovely park especially the old part, lovely and nostalgic.
