My name is Michel, and Lebanese food is my passion. Food by Michel offers catering for your home or office, and cooking workshops where I’ll teach you to make your favorite Lebanese dishes (and some of mine!). We also host several market-stalls every month, with some of the best falafel you’ve ever tried.
Welcome, and thank you for your visit!
I specialize in traditional mezza, but also have an inventive streak. Ever heard of mama ghannouj? Drop me a note if you’d like to try some.
Lebanese food is delicious, but takes a lot of time to make. A good table should cover a wide variety of mezza and dips, but with each dish taking between half an hour to two hours, pulling this off isn’t an easy feat.
I love catering. My company specializes in catering for wedding and small events, but I also love helping you host dinners at your home, or inviting you and a group of friends over to mine for a meal. Offering vary based on your needs and expected number of guests, but our service includes mezza, mains and desserts. You set the limit, according to your needs. Also, if you want Food by Michel can take care of decoration (flowers), tableware, and cutlery. Or even my service to help you in the party or event. You only have to request it (it entails an extra expense). So you don’t have to worry about anything, just enjoy the party and the food!
If you look below you’ll find some of my most requested items along with pricing information.
But if you’d like to learn more, just give me a call on 06 1445 9943 or fill out the contact form. I’d love to help you customize the package for your specific event.
Group packages are available for groups of all sizes and to fit all tastes and budgets. If you’re planning a dinner, the average package is about €20,- per person and includes 6 pieces of mixed mezze per person.
But the best package is the one that caters specifically to your requirements, so please get in touch with me and we’ll build one together.

Happy new year!
I did wonder about the extra dishes but when I received your message I understood that you included them as an extra. So many thanks!
We still have some leftovers and will enjoy these with the small group working today, myself included 😉 All the best for the New Year!
Markets are some of my favorite places, and one of our main activities. We have a permanent stand in three of Amsterdam’s busiest markets, and I’d love to give you a sample of our famous falafel if you stop by and say hello.
Head to the Biologische markt van Eesterenlaan every Wednesday to catch up with us. There’s a wide selection of fresh, seasonal mezza and dips waiting for you when you get here.
On the first Sunday of every month, you’ll find us at the Sunday Market, one of the most popular markets in Amsterdam. We’ll be there offering wraps (including our famous falafel) and plates of mixed mezza. See you there!
Ever wanted to try your hand at making Lebanese food? Yes it’s a complicated cuisine, but it shouldn’t be intimidating. And it’s incredibly fun to learn, cook, and of course eat!
My workshops can be held in my kitchen or yours, and will include starters, a main course, mezza and desserts. I also bring along some of the best wine Lebanon has to offer. Workshops last between 4 to 5 hours, and are designed for groups of 6 to 13 people. Prices vary, and include everything you need. Some people like to bring their own aprons to feel more at home, so feel free to do the same.
Dinner at my place
Book a dinner at my home, with colleagues, or friends or families and enjoy with a full Lebanese experience. The minimum number of people should be 5 and maximum 13.
“Dinner lasts 3 hours (it’s also possible a lunch instead a dinner). For more information about details and prices don’t hesitate to fill the contact form on the bottom of the website”.
