Esther’s Cookery is a vegetarian cooking studio that offers cooking workshops, parties and private dining.

Esther’s Cookery is passionate about creating authentic dishes that combine traditional and contemporary recipes, wholesome foods and sustainable produce. These values are central to all activities that we have to offer.


Prepare a meal with friends, family or colleagues? Looking for a private dinner? Or like to have a fun party with snacks and cocktails, much is possible in Esther's Cookery.


Every month you can enjoy a vegetarian 5-course dinner with your friends, family or colleagues in our pop-up restaurant


Workshops at Esther’s Cookery offer groups an opportunity to experience and share in her knowledge of cuisines from across the globe and her vision for healthy but tasty vegetarian and pescatarian eating!

During a cooking workshop, the group will prepare a full meal using wholesome ingredients and sustainable produce. The group can consist of friends, family, or perhaps a team from an organisation or workplace. Children are welcome and workshops specific to children are also provided.

From authentic Jewish traditions to homemade Italian dishes, to even Vegan cuisine, Esther’s Cookery workshops demonstrate that healthy eating does not need to be ‘difficult’, that healthy food does not need to be any less tasty and that you can incorporate your own interpretations of recipes and cooking ideas.

Join our workshop instructors, get inspired and get cooking!


Make a booking and join us at Esther’s Cookery for an unforgettable food experience with family, friends or colleagues for a special lunch or dinner.

By eating together at Esther’s Cookery, in your own private kitchen, you are guaranteed an enjoyable afternoon or evening, stress-free and without having to do the dishes!

Together we can create a menu that suits the requirements of your guests. Once the menu has been agreed upon, we’ll do the rest.


Need an idea for a kids party? Then plan a children’s cooking workshop with Esther’s Cookery.

During the workshop we prepare a delicious and healthy meal together. Children learn all about wholesome eating, develop their cooking skills and familiarise themselves with diverse ingredients and flavours with this fun hands-on approach!

After the session the children may stay and enjoy their homemade meal, or save it for later and take it home with them. The workshops are suitable for children aged 4+ years.


International, full of taste, color and with innovative ingredients and forgotten vegetables. That way you can best describe our surprising kitchen. After the great success of the Vegetarian Restaurant Week we organize a dinner once a month.

Dishes from all the books of our hero Yotam Ottolenghi, from home-made pita to charcoal kohlrabi with thyme. Home made sour, kimchi, pickled cucumbers and of course a grand desert. We make a menu and serve it in many courses with matching wines.

Een geweldige ervaring! Samen koken, samen eten en een heleboel informatie over ingrediënten en recepten. Onder bezielend leiding van Esther. Doen!!


Samen koken EN eten is nog vele malen leuker dan alleen maar samen eten. Coole studio op een al even coole locatie. Mark my words: de Gerard Dou wordt de nieuwe food alley van Amsterdam.



Hoe gaaf, samen koken en eten en dat alles ook nog grotendeels vegetarisch! Heeft mij veel inspiratie gegeven. Het eten was heerlijk en de avond super gezellig. Esther, ik kom zeker nog eens langs en ik heb een aantal collega's ook al enthousiast gemaakt!
