About Chef Kjelld van Essen


Hi there, Kjelld here: your private chef for the day!


I simply love the sight of a nicely decorated table full of good food and wine, with a lot of people around it having a good time. This is really what get’s me going. For the past four years, I’ve worked my way through the kitchen: from ‘chef de partie’, to ‘chef’ of that same restaurant. It made me learn a lot about food, but the most important thing I learned is that as a cook, you never stop learning.


Being the son of a German father and an Indonesian mother, made me experience a lot of different kind of flavours growing up. Later in life, this made me really interested in exploring other countries and cultures through food. Which is why my girlfriend (Luna) and I decided in July 2021 to build our own campervan, rent out our house and live a nomadic lifestyle, to explore Europe and beyond. So far, our travels have taken us through France, Spain, Portugal and Austria. I very much like the idea of putting the flavors and dishes, that we've encountered during our travels, on your dinner table.


I cook with a less-is-more mentality and with respect to the tradition and culture where a certain dish or ingrediënt comes from.


With a background in Nutrition & Dietetics and a vegetarian girlfriend, I’m very familiar with all different kinds of cooking. Whether it is cooking for vegetarians, allergies or other specific diets. I’m always open for ideas or special requests regarding your dinner.
