“Top ‘frites’ start with top potatoes. After 18 months of experimenting with potatoes, various baking methods and after many tastings, I found the most beautiful potato in the clay of Zeeland. Our French fries stay creamy soft on the inside and become nice and crunchy on the outside. I leave the thin skins on them for that extra earthy flavour plus a pleasant crunchy structure.” – Sergio
“Perfect French fries are not too salty but certainly not bland either. We season our fries with salt extracted from the saltwort plant. I love the silty taste of this Zeeland marine plant. It is much less harsh than cooking salt and therefore much more flavoursome.” – Sergio
French fries or hot chips taste delicious, but with our homemade sauces, they taste even better. At Frites Ateliers, you can tap your own homemade French fries sauce. Sergio Herman – The culinary mastermind behind Frites Ateliers – has developed the recipes for all of the Frites Atelier sauces which are all free from preservatives and artificial fragrances, colours and flavours.
“My culinary adventure started when I took over my parents’ mussel restaurant. Driven by my passion for cooking, I took the Oud Sluis restaurant to the very highest of culinary levels; a 3-star Michelin rating. Since then, I have given myself a new culinary challenge: French fries. For more than one and a half years we tested and tasted potatoes with just one aim: to prepare beautiful, delicious fries with sensational toppings for you! Taste my delicious flavours in the world of Frites Atelier!”
Every season, Frites Atelier introduces a new seasonal special that is only available during that season. In addition to its regular dishes on the menu, every season thus has its own limited edition at Frites Atelier.
SEASONAL SPECIAL – Old Mimolette & Truffle
Our autumn special is served with a mature grated Mimolette cheese, homemade truffle mayonnaise, a pointed cabbage/mizuna salad and roasted hazelnuts from the Piedmont area in Italy.
“This combination is the definition of umami!”
SEASONAL SPECIAL – Frites in Japan
Frites Atelier’s latest special comprises typical ingredients such as Miso in combination with the Japanese sprinkle mixture Furikake, which includes dried nori, sesame seeds and wasabi. This special is further dressed with yuzu-miso mayonnaise, a mizuna salad, bonito flakes and grated lemon and horseradish.
“In Japan, all flavours have a meaning and this special depicts my memories of the mystics of this beautiful country!”

CRISPY CROQUETTE COLLECTION
In response to your appreciation for our Zeeland shrimp croquettes, I started to work further on the idea of compiling a selection of restaurant-standard croquettes based on pure quality products associated with my signature. Hereby the launch of the Crispy Croquet Collection by Sergio Herman.
ZEELAND SHRIMP CROQUETTE
The classic of classics, the shrimp croquette! This croquette is made to a personal recipe and I wanted to go for nothing less than flavour and quality expected at restaurant level. This shrimp croquette is now also on the menu at AIRrepublic*. Shrimp are also referred to as ‘North Sea Caviar’ due to their exclusive nature and exceptionally beautiful flavour.
SLOW COOKED BEEF CROQUETTE
The beef that is used for the salpicon of these croquettes is beautiful selected shoulder cuts that are slow-cooked in a hearty oxtail broth. The supremacy of our meat croquettes is enhanced by a combination of pepper mayonnaise and a fresh accompanying pickle-mix.
PREMIUM CHEESE CROQUETTE
The cheese croquette that I have developed contains 3 ab-so-lute top cheeses, namely Swiss Gruyere, Italian Parmesan and a mature Cheddar cheese, originally from England. The full creamy taste of this filling is beyond comparison to industrial cheese croquettes. This croquette is lightly sprinkled with fresh tomato powder and served with basil mayonnaise.
We were searching for alcohol-free drinks that would combine perfectly with our French fries and eventually, a range of homemade iced teas emerged of which we offer two every day in our Ateliers. The fresh and invigorating flavours of fruits and herbs combine very well with the earthy flavour of potatoes.
