Henk Savelberg SAVELBERG THAILAND
Growing up as a miner’s son in Mechelen, Belgium it was almost unthinkable that Henk Savelberg (1953) would become one of the doyens of Nouvelle Cuisine. In the Netherlands, he was successively awarded Michelin stars for De Graaf van het Hoogeveen (1982), Seinpost (1985), Vreugd en Rust (1990) and Savelberg (1998). In 2014, he moved to bustling Bangkok, and when Michelin finally found its way to the Thai capital in 2017, Savelberg Thailand was immediately awarded a Michelin star, making him the first Dutch chef to receive five Michelin stars in a row. As one of the founders of Les Patrons Cuisiniers, he still maintains a close relationship with his chef colleagues in the Netherlands.
