Who is HaykeKookt

Hayke Rijneveld is a woman with a keen nose for enjoyment, taste for good food, knowledge of quality and an eye for atmosphere. Hayke loves honest, good food. Fresh ingredients are the best basis for the most exquisite dishes. Al meals come, as far as possible, from her own kitchen, and are prepared specially for you. She likes to present national and international dishes that everyone can enjoy.

Hayke is a cook who enjoys happy faces during a meal, and the satisfaction of her guests thereafter. In other words, a cook who knows what enjoyment means!

We prefer to work with the best and mostly biological ingredients delivered by the best there are in the restaurant business; Lindenhoff in Baambrugge and Jan van As Fishdelivery in Amsterdam.


Recently I attended a perfect workshop. Pascal Jalhaij, a very talented and driven master-chef, has tried to pass a part of his knowledge over to us. It was great!

The workshop started with presentation of the lunch menu, a carot cream soup as an amuse bouche and the cleaning of Coquilles St. Jacques catched by divers. If these scallops are dived for there is hardly and sand in them and the bottom of the ocean stays unharmed. This in contradiction to the ones catched with drawing nets that seriously disturb the ecological environment. After the cleaning we learned to make a very aromatic sauce of the beard and muscle of the scalop. So we made a lovely lunch for people in the restaurant business. With lots of joy and most certainly to be done another time. What an inspiration!

With frequent order I attend these kind of workshops to increase my knowledge and to profound my fundaments of cooking. HaykeKookt also can provide in a workshop on your level of cooking skills, individual or for groups, just ask at .


"Al verschillende malen heeft Hayke mij geholpen met zakelijke evenementen. Altijd een feest om met haar te mogen samenwerken. Maakt niet uit of het voor een kleine of grote groep is, voor jong en oud, als Hayke kookt is het altijd goed.
Een echte aanrader dus"!

"Met Hayke is het erg prettig werken. Ik wilde graag een walking lunch met kleine verfijnde hapjes. Alles was perfect met een schone keuken na afloop en gasten die meer dan tevreden naar huis gingen! Volgende keer weer Hayke!
