Jannis Brevet began his cooking career as an apprentice at Munich, Germany’s Tantris. After working at multiple German restaurants, Brevet returned to his homeland, working in Dutch restaurants such as Koetshuis and Chagall. But it was when he and his wife bought and took over one of the most famous restaurants in the Netherlands that his career took off.

Inter Scaldes had been in operation since 1968 under Maartje en Kees Boudeling. Having grown up in the area near the restaurant, the chef knew the local ingredients inside and out and took over in 2001.

The restaurant received its third star by 2018, and Brevet continues to wow in what is considered the Netherlands’ best restaurant.
