Passion runs in our team
Jeriko Van Der Wolf joined the circle of the Bangkok’s greatest chefs since he arrived in Thailand in 2015. The one who was elected « Best French Apprentice » in 2011 recently participated in Iron Chef Thailand against Chef Ian. He was also part of the Master Chef Thailand 2018 jury.
Jeriko, who is now 25 years old, started his career very young : at 18 years old, he was already working with « MOF » Chefs in Michelin starred restaurants in France. From « L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon » to the 3 starred restaurant « Regis and Jacques Marcon », Jeriko acquired a very gastronomic background that he now uses for Cocotte.
He expresses his talent using the finest ingredients and local products to find the perfect match with the animal cuts used everyday at Cocotte, with a combination of classic and modern inspiration. Simplicity stays the roots of Jeriko’s cooking style, as he like to quote Curnonsky “In cuisine, as in all the arts, simplicity is the sign of perfection”. Seen as one of the most talented young Chef in Thailand, Jeriko continues to demonstrate he is a challenger, always looking for best products, in his kitchen or in the deepest Chiang Mai’s jungle. Perfectionist and passionate about food, Jeriko presents a cooking style that comes back to the basics of what he actually loves to eat : « You know, ever since I was a child, I always loved roasted chicken… To the point where I nearly got one tattooed on my arm! »
