In 2009 Jan-Tjip Douwstra, with many years of experience in the hospitality industry and an above average interest in the field of food and drinks, started importing Olive oil and vinegars from Tuscany (Italy) to sell it as a wholesaler to catering and specialty stores throughout the country. Over the years, the House of Taste range expanded with various delicacies from home and abroad. As a result of which it is also possible to supply food service companies.
In addition to this wholesale function, House of Taste is also frequently present at various Food events and markets. Taste & Experience is the motto of House of Taste and we like to do that. Since May 2015, we have opened our first delicatessen store in the Kleine Kerkstraat in Leeuwarden. With a large part of our own range, we have further filled the store with wonderfully beautiful delicacies from home and abroad that allow you to taste and experience it yourself. Think of domestic and foreign cheeses, sausages, nuts, meat products, wines, etc.
Through the store we provide daily groceries, including snacks, meals, lunch, sandwiches and snack boards for every occasion. We are happy to think along with you, from small to large groups.
We are happy to help you in the store and online with your search for beautiful, special and tasteful products. Are you looking for a nice gift for a birthday or another occasion? Then come to our store. You have also come to the right place for Christmas and promotional gifts.
