A wonderful book about top restaurant La Rive that resides in Inter Continental Hotel Amstel Amsterdam. Chef de cuisine Rogér Rassin & maître Sommelier Ronald Opten:
1 + 1 = 3 Perfect Harmony.
Perfect Harmony is a wonderful book about top restaurant La Rive which resides in Inter Continental Hotel Amstel Amsterdam (also known as the Amstel Hotel). The British Queen Elizabeth was a guest, as well as members of the Rolling Stones and pop icon Rihanna. The building is designed by Samuel Sarphati, and located at the Amstel River, proudly viewing the lovely water.
The Amstel Hotel initially made a hesitant start in 1867, but is now established in the Amsterdam street view and widely acclaimed for its class and grandeur. And behind the beautiful façade there is a world to discover. La Rive is located in the hotel: a very special restaurant, that made name with its French-Mediterranean cuisine, with many fresh vegetables and seasonal products being prepared in an innovative way and with great attention. It gave La Rive a Michelin star and a lot of valuation. Every guest is welcomed in La Rive in a very hospitable way and is served with the best culinary delights, accompanied by the most beautiful selected world wines – in a very wonderful setting.
British publicist Mark Cunningham became fascinated by La Rive and compiled a book around chef De cuisine Rogér Rassin with his white brigade and maître sommelier Ronald Opten with his black brigade – two complementary parts. The book is replete with beautiful, special and compelling photographs by top photographer Remko Kraaijeveld. The remarkable design is from none other than Ronald Timmermans (known from A.O. PUURST).
Perfect Harmony contains background information on the dishes and special wines that are served, but the book also recounts the people behind the cook-or waiter’s apron and their dreams. In short, a book that exudes a special atmosphere. Essential to any coffee or kitchen table.
