Robert Poel l Michelin rated Chef*

Robert was still very young when he started working in the kitchen of Jacob Jan Boerma, rated 3 Michelin stars. Of all Chefs that Robert worked with, this period, had the biggest impact on him as a young chef. He incorporates the philosophy of Jacob Jac as his mentor in his own style in Voltaire, the fine dinging restaurant of Parc Broekhuizen. By using fresh and seasonal ingredients, wither from selected local suppliers as well as from the kitchen garden at the este, Robert is committed to provide guests with an enriched, high-quality experience with a twist. He leads a young and ambitious team with whom he creates his own signature dishes with creativity allowing simplicity and profound tastes to speak for itself.

Quint van den Esschert l Pastry Chef

Quint previously worked in the Voltaire kitchen for almost 2 years since the opening in 2016 and returned in the beginning of 2021 as Pastry Chef. Although Quint has vast experience in every area of the kitchen, his passion lies in desserts and pastries. He will spoil you with amazing desserts and an extensive, but most of all irresistable, selection of choclates and friandises. Quint’s suggestion: take a box of hishome-made chocolated home to give away as a present or to enjoy yourself.
