Welcome to the All-day kitchen!

My name is Denise Kortlever and I work as a food trend writer and food photographer for titles such as LINDA.tv, Vogue and RTL4. I write and speak about delicious food, inspiring food trends and successful hospitality concepts

In October 2015, my first book ‘All-day breakfast’ (currently in third print) was published with the Dutch publishing house Unieboek | Het Spectrum. My second cookbook ‘All-day bowls’ (now in 2nd print) was released in October 2016.

My food philosophy
These days, almost everyone is interested in healthy eating, but sometimes the aspect of enjoyment seems to be neglected. Eating is more than giving your body the nutrients and fuel it needs. Eating is so much more than what is on your plate.

It’s discovering new flavors and dishes. Spending long evenings at the table with the people you love. Sharing trusted family recipes and new favorites. Buying the very best ingredients and experimenting in the kitchen.

I truly believe in balance and variation, in never depriving yourself and in paying a little more attention to a meal. I love avocado toast as much as chocolate tarts and don’t believe in terms like ‘clean eating’.

I find it important that dishes look good, but above all, they must taste delicious and be fairly easy to prepare. And I like to give recipes a unique twist, because it’s the little things that can make all the difference.
