Corona measures on Texel

Texel Culinair

The second weekend of September, the Dorpsstraat in De Koog will become one large open-air restaurant!

Culinary delights

Texel Culinair is a three-day culinary event in the center of De Koog. In these days, around 100 different little dishes will be produced by the head chefs of around 20 Texel restaurants, beaneries, pubs and catering companies.

As a visitor, you can fully enjoy these culinary delights, prepared with products from the island. This weekend the Kôgertjes (coins) are the payment method. For each participant, at least 1 dish of 1 cup (worth € 2.25) is available.


Texel Culinair has a theme every year. This theme is incorporated into a dish. Each participant gives their own interpretation to this dish. A special dish for everyone.


The dishes of the participants are judged by an expert jury on various criteria such as; ingredients, taste, color and presentation. In addition, the jury also pays attention to hospitality, hygiene, layout of the stand, the use of Texel products and professional competence.

Award ceremony

The award ceremony will take place on Sunday evening. Use of this culinary battle: who creates the most beautiful dish with typical Texel ingredients? The jury awards different culinary awards to the participating restaurants: the best dish, the best participant and the best theme dish.
