Onno Kleyn, THE NETHERLANDS

Onno Kleyn

Food writer and critic, Onno Keyn has possibly been the most qualified connoisseur of the Italian culinary culture in the Netherlands for long time now. His fame, which exudes copiously from his books and articles, is based on a thorough knowledge of Italy, its food and wine, its places, its history and traditions. What makes Onno special, however, is his commitment to educate the Dutch to recognize the best of Italian cultural expressions in the Netherlands, a country in which too often establishments providing Italian cuisine have been in the hands of unscrupulous, not to mention, incompetent operators.
