Chef de Cuisine Grand Café Krasnapolsky – Pasquale Carfora
Pasquale Carfora is the head of the kitchen of Grand Café Krasnapolsky. He and his team are passionate and very driven, inspired by Jacob Jan Boerma (***). After working several years in the kitchen at several establishments in his home country Italy, Pasquale came to the Netherlands in 2016 to start at the Grand Café Krasnapolsky as sous chef. During this period he successfully participated in the Master Talent Culinary Academy, where he developed his own cooking style together with several star chefs. In 2018 he was among the top 10 of the San Pellegrino Young Chef award. In terms of cooking style, you will find references to his homeland Italy, but everything with recognizable flavors and respect for the ingredients
Jacob Jan Boerma was captured by good food and cooking at an early age. He learned the trade at renowned restaurants such as De Bokkedoorns, Scholteshof, and Kaatje bij de Sluis.
In the beginning of 2002 Jacob Jan Boerma and Kim Veldman started their own restaurant De Leest on the outskirts of the nature reserve ‘de Veluwe’. In 2003 the restaurant earns its first Michelin star and a second one in 2007. In 2009 Boerma is awarded the prestigious Chef of the Year Award by Gault Millau. Shortly after, the restaurant earns its then third Michelin star and gastronomes both nationally and internationally find everything their culinary heart desires there.
The menu of Grand Café Krasnapolsky is under his signature; a menu with simple dishes full of flavor. Cooking with respect of the ingredients. Inventive recipes and immaculate preparations, presented elegantly.
