Chez Renée

Hi, I’m Renée Zijlmans, and I’m the one behind the tasty treats at Chez Renée. My love for baking started when I offered to make my parents’ wedding cake. It felt so special contributing something unique to their big day, that I wanted to make this a regular part of my life, and that’s how my baking journey began. 

I spend a good amount of time each week in the kitchen, aiming to create treats that bring extra joy to someone’s day. A cake is like a blank canvas waiting to be painted.

Before launching my business, I studied Biology in Leiden. I’m passionate about sustainability, so I use organic products as much as possible. I strive to create a business that not only produces quality goods but also promotes eco-friendly practices.
