Food has always been a central part of Soenil's life. Thanks to his mother and grandmother, who spent all day in the kitchen, he learned the joys of cooking at a very young age. Born in Suriname, he moved to The Netherlands when he was just eight, but never left his culinary roots behind. He opened his restaurant De Lindehof in Nuenen in 1995 and was awarded his first Michelin star in 2004, the second followed ten years later. He was also named ‘Chef of the Year’ by Gault & Millau in 2020.
He is still busy with his restaurant to this day, however, throughout Covid, he started up a a food truck and took his spicy eats to the streets!
