dining in blooming style

Inspired by the organic Hoftuin and guided by the seasons. Get to know the blooming way of cooking.

blooming focuses on cooking with a palette of delicious natural flavours. The ingredients used come as far as possible from our own organic vegetable garden, which can be found at blooming estate Het Hof, and from farmers in the region. Executive Chef Roel Oostrum gets his inspiration from the Hoftuin. This Hoftuin is the red thread through the menu of blooming. Together with the gardener, Roel makes an annual gardening plan, so blooming automatically cooks with the seasons.

With this wealth within cycling distance of the hotel, it goes without saying that vegetables are the basis for our dishes. This can be found in Restaurant Zandhoeve, with its fully vegetarian flora menu. If you still feel like meat or fish, choose the fauna menu or go for a really good hamburger in the brasserie. For this we work together with carefully selected suppliers. The combination of local ingredients with global spices and cooking techniques guarantees surprising taste combinations.

the organic Hof garden

The inspiration of Chef Roel Oostrum does not come from a book. It comes from the past, nature and the seasons. But most important of all: the organic Hoftuin. This Hoftuin is the red thread through the menu and the most important source of inspiration. De Hoftuin is part of the blooming Foundation, which aims to invest in socially responsible projects to give people a chance to develop themselves. Challenge them to bloom. The collaboration with Scorlewald is therefore a logical step. Our bloomers now allow others to blossom as well. What is harvested in the afternoon is on your plate in the evening. The menu is completely attuned to what the Hoftuin offers the kitchen. We are talking about 50 kinds of vegetables, herbs and fruit, which are grown with attention and passion for the kitchen of the restaurant.
