Jériko Van Der Wolf

Jériko 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 to 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 », Jériko acquired a very gastronomic background that he now uses for Pesca.
He expresses his talent using the finest ingredients and local products to find the perfect match with the animal cuts used everyday at Pesca, with a combination of classic and modern inspiration. Simplicity remains the root of Jériko’s cooking style, as he likes 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, Jériko continuously challenges himself by always looking for the best products, from the deepest parts of Chiang Mai’s jungle, to the depths of the ocean.
A true perfectionist and passionate about food, Jériko presents a back-to-basic cooking style 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! »
