Patisserie Linnick, Amsterdam
The Dutch version of Pierre Hermé Paris
Patisserie Linnick is the newest pastry hot spot in Amsterdam! This industrial styled Valhalla full of sweet delights opened its doors on September 12th just around the corner of my apartment. I don’t have a sweet tooth, but these types of nom noms make me have one. Finally, we don’t have to go to Paris for the best macarons!
Pâtissier Nick van Doorn, won his spurs as the former chef pastry of one of the best patisseries in the Netherlands, Holtkamp. This is also the place were he met his girlfriend – oh très romantique – and now companion, Linda van der Lee, 14 years ago. This year they finally followed their heart and living their dream: Linnick.
Where Holtkamp sticks to the very traditional recipes, Nick is a more experimental chef. Have you ever tried a mojito or tonka beans-vanilla bonbon for example? Whipped cream of caramel? Ingredients like yuzu, calamansi, rosewater and orange-blossom, they use it all! This rebellious side is also visible in the shop’s interior design, which tends to be an industrial New York warehouse style. Glass walls are put into the building to give visitors a glimpse of working life in a bakery and the chocolate department works in an open kitchen behind the counter.
Next to the bonbons, macarons, cakes, chocolates, madeleines and granola, you can get your (take away) coffee at Linnick. As far as possible, the used ingredients are biologic and fair trade.
- Crème brûlée macaron
- Passion fruit cheesecake
- Cassis bonbon (with whole berries in it!)
