For Mike Vrijdag, his passion for cooking starts with a ladle and cake batter. He decides to enrol in pastry school. Friday wants more and starts culinary training. At restaurant De Leeuw in Lichtenvoorde, he learns that you can get far with hard work. At Hotel Frerikshof in Winterswijk and Het Koetshuis in Bennekom, he sees that, in addition to a great drive, you must also have a great passion for the profession. At Princess Juliana in Valkenburg - his first employer at two-star level - he climbs up from apprentice to chef de partie. He wants to further develop his career and decides to apply for a job at De Bokkedoorns, where he works as chef de partie. After a while, Friday wants to return to the east and starts as a sous-chef at Het Koetshuis. Here, everything revolves around continuity and quality, important pillars that are rewarded with a Michelin star. In top restaurants such as De Beukenhorst and Villa Ruimzicht, he takes on the position of head chef. In 2011, Friday opens his very own Restaurant Strandlodge. Totally unexpectedly, he and his team are rewarded with a Michelin star in 2015. THE proof that you can get far with passion and hard work!
