Willemstad, June 20 – Kooyman reflects on a successful 3rd Edition of the Kooyman Grill Event, with this year’s theme, Burgers, which took place at the Megastore Jan Noorduynweg last Saturday. The absolute winners were Cesar Pérez & his daughter Catherine.

This year the event was in the context of father’s day. A total of 5 father-and-child teams participated in this 3rd edition which focused on burgers. The participants had one hour to convince the jury of their grilling talents by preparing and grilling the best hamburger. When doing so, they could use a large selection of spices and sauces, supplied by Carrefour supermarket and DeliNova.


The participants were evaluated by a jury consisting of: Henk van Blanken of DeliNova, Sandy Evertsz representing Kooyman and Chef Rogelio of Hemingway. ‘The jury had a tough job because they were dealing with, amongst other things, children, ‘according to Thais Evertsz, Marketing Officer of Kooyman. “We look back on a very successful event. Because in addition to the competition, customers could attend Weber demos by Remy Bernabella of the Pit Smoker, special explanations by COBB, participate in father-son workshops, there was also plenty to do for children in the special kids’ corner, there were samples by Penha, Jack Daniels tasting, haircuts by the barbers of BAR.BER and R-O1 and Highway Band created a great atmosphere throughout the day. It was a real family-event enjoyed by many people. A signature Kooyman event which will occur every year, so be ready for the next Kooyman Grill Event in 2020.
