Get to know me better

Chef with experience in michellin star restaurants

I began my culinary journey in my homeland of the Netherlands completing training and gaining experience in a range of fine dining and Michelin star restaurants.

After relocating to the other side of the world, I have called New Zealand home for fifteen years, spending time in Hamilton and Whitianga before taking up residence in the stunning location of Queenstown where I was Executive Chef of Stoneridge Estate.

I moved to Havelock North and I'm looking forward to working with the abundance of seasonal fresh produce on offer in the region. My methods are classic yet modern with a focus on rustic flavours using honest quality ingredients. My menus includes simple and well-executed dishes while also being textural and bold. I am working on develop an international menus with European and Dutch influences while still incorporating amazing New Zealand and local cuisine.
