Get to know me better
Private chef for all of your culinary wishes.
My name is Melvin Leermakers, living on Bonaire since 2018 and loving the island and it’s people. I’ve worked as a chef for almost 15 years and got to know all kinds of kitchens.
I love cooking but I also love to explain to my guests the story behind my dishes and ingredients. This way they will fully experience the dish and local ingredients.
I like to give my guests the ultimate culinary experience that suits their wishes. Besides that I love Bonaire and like to share some unique information and special spots and trips only locals know about with my guests.
For me, cooking is...
Giving people pleasure, an outstanding culinary experience and introducing them to the pure taste of (local) Ingredients
I learned to cook at...
My grandfather’s kitchen, the old man owned a restaurant and gave me the love of cooking
A role model in the kitchen is...
Chef Anthony Bourdain
A cooking secret...
Will stay my secret for now ;)
