Michael van der Kroft

Michael van der Kroft runs the Tres restaurant in Rotterdam with his wife Emy Koster, who is head of the front of the house/maitre d’. Having opened in 2021, this restaurant is already reaping all kinds of praise thanks to a very personal, daring, and technical cuisine, well supported by local products.

The young Dutchman came to the kitchen by chance, as a way to earn money outside of his career as an athlete, competing in BMX cycling. He finally chose cuisine because it allowed him to use all his creativity.

“When I go out for dinner, I can always see when the pastry chef eats. They want to show all their techniques into one or two desserts, and these creations don’t often follow the line of the menu”
