Herman Cooijmans

A chef with a passion for Nordic cuisine

Chef Herman Cooijmans does not want to be predictable. Instead, he goes for unexpected and exciting flavour combinations at restaurant Eden. Yet in a refined way and with products of the highest quality. His goal is to excel with new taste combinations and dishes that are at the forefront of culinary trends. After working with Robin Groos at Hostellerie Vangaelen in Heeze for a long time, chef Herman Cooijmans joined the Michelin-awarded kitchens of Wollerich in Sint-Oedenrode and De Treeswijkhoeve in Waalre. Then in 2017, as chef of restaurant Juliana in Valkenburg, he received a Bib Gourmand award for his excellent skills. After this, Herman joined forces again with Robin and opened restaurant Eden.

I love Nordic cuisine, because of the way they use their products and how they stay close to their original looks and qualities.

As you may have guessed, the name of restaurant Eden is derived from the Garden of Eden. Garden of Eden symbolizes a life of opulence and luxury. And this is exactly what this fine-dining spot strives for. Guests must be pampered as well as provided with top-notch service and products.
