For decades, De Karpendonkse Hoeve was a highly acclaimed restaurant; a place in Eindhoven famous for its top quality cuisine, personalised service and welcoming ambiance. Under the leadership of Ingrid van Eeghem - the owner of the popular dining place and receiver of several best hospitality awards - the restaurant earned Michelin stars for 18 consecutive years with various chefs and kitchen compositions
Over the course of the turbulent Covid-19 pandemic, unprecedented changes were required. Because of lockdowns and novel government regulations, the restaurant had to close. Similarly to other owners, Ingrid started side projects, with opening a takeout and home delivery dining service being the most obvious choice.
The next question was what the future would hold?
Upon asking other restaurant owners, responses were varied but all focused on staying afloat until the physical reopening of restaurants. Ingrid on the other hand had a completely different vision; an idea that kept up with the rapidly changing world.
As De Karpendonkse Hoeve evolved into an in-home dining experience service, to Ingrid’s joy the focus shifted from the practicalities of running a corporation back to the heart of cooking: palatable flavour combinations, the menu and fresh ingredients… The things that really matter.
The now fully online KH@HOME offers a range of menus and dishes, prepared by reputed chefs and delivered straight to your doorstep. In an increasingly busy world, Ingrid recognizes that good food and drink is pivotal in bringing families and friends together. She hopes to continue to create memorable and meaningful experiences for her wonderful guests, now in a completely new way.
