Hymn to lentils

Hymn to lentils

Lentils have a pr problem. I know, their color is not attractive. I know, if you cook them, it doesn’t get any better. If you’re unlucky it looks like baby food. But because the beauty of lentils is to be found inside, I do find their appearance absolutely attractive. I get very happy when I set my sight on them. I look forward to the moment I will find them on my plate. I happily take a bag of green lentils off the shelf and respectfully take them to the cash register.

Are you vegan? And you love cooking and eating so much…

Are you vegan? And you love cooking and eating so much…

My own brother could not believe what he was hearing. His sister had decided to cook and eat vegan. His sister, who dedicated her life to delicious food. Whom he always saw in the kitchen with her pans, full tables and lots of good times. And this sister had decided...

I simply have a fetish for classic recipes

I simply have a fetish for classic recipes

I have a fetish for classic recipes. Classic recipes that use classic ingredients. Not that I am such a traditional type, but more than a lot of thought has been given to such a dish. Most of the time it's the pureness that impresses. Because the taste sensation is...

About à la Damaris…

Join us at the table of à la Damaris. The place where (vegan) cooking reaches a culinary level. Discovering different eating cultures. Of course, I do this already as long as I can remember. Looking at most recipes you won’t even realise that they are vegan. We make dishes that are vegan without the intention of being vegan. They are originally vegan, not made vegan. Or changed to become vegan. No, the ingredients were chosen because they are incredibly tasteful together. Long ago, before ‘vegan’ came into vogue, if you know what I mean. And that’s exactly the idea.

Our philosophy


Yes, we cook vegan. Because that’s better for ourselves, better for animals and better for the environment. We do not use any (meat) substitutes. We prepare vegan recipes that were vegan before we ever started talking about vegan. Dishes that are incredibly delicious because of how they are compiled. You will not find soy on this website. Not because it is often used as substitute, but also because half of the Amazone forest is deforested for this reason. We prefer using oat milk and coconut yoghurt.


Everything has more taste if you use pure ingredients. A truly ripe tomato tastes so much better than tomato sauce in a bottle. And home made pesto, wins it from pesto in the supermarket. Hands down. We cook as pure as we can. That makes everything better.


Personal contact allows you to cook with more confidence à la yourself. We are always there to answer your questions, to discuss things.  And you know what, it makes things so much nicer for you and for us.


Choosing ingredients with care. Cooking with care. Taking your time and focusing on cooking for the people you are doing it for. Attention for our clients. Attention during our online cooking videos. Attention and focus makes everything more worth the while. More tasteful. Nicer. More fun.


Other eating cultures have different tastes, different habits, new experiences. It is always an enriching experience.


Vegan can be healthier, if you eat enough vegetables, fruit and other pure ingredients. We cook as pure as we can, which is also healthier.

What they say about à la Damaris

“My boyfriend prepared the fennel risotto of à la Damaris and it is the best risotto ever, and everyone has to make it. Preferably now. Ooowwww boyyyy.”

Ellen Janssen, @natuurellen

“You are the only one I want to see on television in cooking programs… To me you are the top chef of the vegan kitchen. Finally someone who turns the vegan kitchen into something pure and tasteful. You are a mile stone in vegan cooking.”

Margaretha Bordui

“I am not a cook … but this Bulgur salade is such a fantastic dish. I followed the steps of this recipe step by step and guess what… a superbly delicious result came out of my kitchen. And it even looked great. I was so proud that I let the whole neighbourhood taste it. Thank you Damaris. And on to the next recipe.”

Marjolein Koster

“I follow since some time and you really have great and delicious recipes, different from what others bring. And you also write these nice stories to go along. I enjoy it very much.”
