Presentations about the sweet side of life
Early in his career Hidde already gave workshops and presentations. Often chocolate workshops for consumers. Later on these workshops shifted more towards the professional field. These workshops are as broad as the field of patisserie itself; nougat, macarons or the bean to bar process. The focus has always been the sweet trade of the business. Since 2017 Hidde is a guest teacher at over 20 trade schools in the Netherlands and Belgium, including the three locations for the Cas Spijkers Academie and is he the manager and one of the teachers at IJscentrum in Vlaardingen.
In 2011 Hidde enters the world of television. He was co-host and judge for the Net5 show Bake my Day and did guest appearances on Masterchef. After which he hosted an episode for the 24Kitchen show ‘Hollandse Bakkers’.
After that he starred in his own show on the popular food channel, with a baking show called ‘De Brabander Bakt’. In 2017 Hidde judged the popular RTL4 show ‘De Chocolade Show’ and he started as the pastry chef on the morning show ‘Koffietijd’, where he still can be seen on a regular basis.
If you need someone to give a demo or workshop for either professionals or enthusiastic home bakers, Hidde is the one to go to. Just like speaking to (larger) audiences about his vision and creativity when it comes to patisserie.
