Get to know me

Welcome to Michiel’s Kitchen and thank you so much for visiting! My name is Michiel, I was born in The Netherlands and moved to London to study a few years ago, fell in love with the city, found a job and never left! On this blog I share a selection of my original recipes and adaptations of the best recipes by some of my favourite chefs with friends, family and hopefully many other passionate home cooks around the world! My favourite things to eat (and cook) are fresh homemade pasta and Dutch bacon and cheese pancakes, though I love discovering new recipes, flavour combinations and cuisines, so you can expect a bit of everything on this blog!
