Kamilla Seidler was Latin America's Best Female Chef in 2016 at the helm of the Bolivian restaurant Gustu. Now she has returned to Denmark with a new project, Lola.
Kamilla Seidler is Danish, she studied cookery at Copenhagen's Hotel & Restaurantskolen København, and has worked in some of the world's leading restaurants such as Mugaritz, Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, Paustian and Geist.
In 2012 she was asked to join Melting Pot, a non-profitmaking project launched by a compatriot, Claus Meyer (co-founder of Noma), which seeks to improve opportunities and standards of living in vulnerable sectors of the population through food and enterprise. This produced Gustu, an innovative restaurant to showcase the native produce of Bolivia by turning its ingredients into sophisticated recipes and it is also a formative center. The project, featuring Kamilla as Executive Chef, has made “Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants” in Restaurant Magazine, and is held to be one of the 20 best restaurants on the continent, and the region's most progressive.
Currently, Kamille has her own project in Denmark with the restaurant Lola, where she offers a gastronomic proposal with flavours from Latin America, India and Southeast Asia.
