Eight restaurants in the Netherlands were awarded their first Michelin Star at the presentation in Amsterdam on Monday. Inter Scaldes in Kruiningen and De Librije in Zwolle both kept the three stars they already had. The Netherlands now counts a total of 112 Michelin star restaurants, according to Misset Horeca's live blog of the presentation.
De Librije, with chefs Jonnie and Therese de Boer, has had three Michelin stars since 2004. "We still do it with so much pleasure. We enjoy it. But we can't do it without our team. Alone we are nothing," Therese said at the presentation.
