Professional, intimate and cozy! According to founder Maartje Stuive, those are the right mix of ingredients for a successful contemporary cooking school. She has always been driven by her creativity, talent and passion for cooking. After graduating Maartje started working for KLM product development. Inspired by the best chef cooks that she worked with, Maartje started giving cooking classes to friends in her kitchen at the Keizersgracht. Her livingroom was gradually taken over by the cooking workshops and before she knew it Keizer Culinair was a fact!
