Head Chef and owner, Locavore

Eelke Plasmeijer started his kitchen career at the age of 14 in a restaurant in his Dutch village. Working his way up through the ranks, he trained at hotel school and a Michelin Two Star restaurant in Amsterdam. Visiting a mentor in Jakarta in 2008, he was persuaded to take over as Head Chef at a city restaurant there. Ray applied as Sous chef, the two hit it off and soon moved to Bali where they ended up running the kitchen at the Alila Ubud together. “Working within the Alila concept of using local ingredients where possible, we decided to take it to the next level and use only local food. Then we started thinking about starting our own restaurant instead of staying within the hotel industry...” The rest is history.
