Eelke Plasmeijer

Chef Eelke started his kitchen career aged 14 in a restaurant in his Dutch village. He went on to train at hotel school and various Michelin starred restaurants before becoming Head Chef at a city restaurant in Jakarta, where he worked togehter with Ray. The two hit it off, moved to Bali to run various kitchens together, and began dreaming of starting a restaurant dedicated to only using local ingredients. They opened Locavore 10 years ago and have since created several award-winning restaurant and bar concepts under Locavore Group, all of which explore the creative use of Indonesian biodiversity within ‘local ingredients only’ menus.
