OUR CUISINE


Welcome to our restaurant the Echoput! More than 60 years ago, my grandfather Jaap Klosse came to visit this place with his moped looking for an internship. A lot has happened in the meantime. At that moment, the Echoput was a tearoom you could visit for a quick snack that cost a few guilders. Yet, Jaap was far ahead of his time and closely followed the developments of the French cuisine. Except for game.

Too long a period of maturing and thick, rich and noble tasting sauces gave him the opportunity to develop a more sophisticated cuisine. With these game specialties, the Echoput became one of the first starred restaurants in The Netherlands. My father Peter Klosse took over the job and became fascinated by taste. Our kitchen specialises in wine and food combinations and courses with multi-sensory elements.The taste of nature is still at the centre of our cooking. This way, the boys and girls of the kitchen go out to have a look at the most beautiful products of the moment, on a daily basis. We process trees, bushes, herbs, plants, vegetables, wildlife, mushrooms and other forest fruits from our area into the best dishes and we place these dishes on our menu. We sincerely hope that you will enjoy the best nature has to offer!

On behalf of the kitchen and service staff of the Echoput:
