New Chef de Cuisine at the helm of Restaurant The White Room* by Jacob Jan Boerma

New Chef de Cuisine at the helm of Restaurant The White Room* by Jacob Jan BoermaTristan de Boer will be the new Chef de Cuisine of the Michelin-starred restaurant in NH Collection Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky in Amsterdam. Together with Signature Chef Jacob Jan Boerma, he continues the current direction of the restaurant, but not without adding his own creativity. Tristan takes over from Chef Randy Karman, who takes on another challenge.


Tristan de Boer is ready to take charge of the kitchen team and will start immediately after the summer holiday of The White Room*. He succeeds the young Randy Karman, who has been able to lead the kitchen of The White Room* passionately. During this period, Randy has integrated the distinctive style of Jacob Jan as well as followed his own creativity. Now he will focus on his future outside NH Hotel Group. We thank Randy for his commitment and drive and look forward to his continued success in the rest of his career.

I look forward to continuing to offer our guests in The White Room* our renowned culinary experience and introducing them to my creativity. It's a great challenge and as I'm born and raised in Amsterdam, I feel completely at home in this beautiful building on Dam Square.
