The pioneers behind Cook Like a chef found each other in their passion for top-notch ingredients, and top-notch restaurant food. Why is this same quality unavailable to people at home, they mused?

And that was the beginning of this new gastronomic platform, started up with the following partners: Marcel van Breda and Jos van Vuren of Schmidt Zeevis, top quality seafood supply merchants; hospitality magnate Erik Pekel from PEEK Wadden Sea Island products, VHC Jongens, culinary photographer Jan Bartelsman and Maik Kuijpers, former executive chef at De Librije in Zwolle
