Amsterdam, 20th February 2020 – In honour of the five-year anniversary of restaurant Taiko in Amsterdam, Executive Chef Schilo van Coevorden is taking guests on the journey he has taken to become the chef he is right now, celebrating the sources of his inspiration. In his fourth exclusive four-hands dining experience he will be celebrating this special milestone with Chef Bobby Geetha of Dubai’s Asha’s. Previous dining experiences included Albert Adrià known for the world-famous restaurant El Bulli, self-taught chef Hisato Hamada and three-star chef Gérald Passedat.

On April 5th and 6th, Schilo welcomes top chef Bobby Geetha from Asha’s, the award-winning Indian restaurant in Dubai. Geetha is currently responsible as corporate executive chef for Asha’s for 18 restaurants in England and the Middle East. Schilo is delighted to welcome a star of Indian cuisine for the special anniversary celebrations saying, “He has a modern way of cooking, with respect for traditional Indian flavours, that makes it very refined, and high quality Indian cuisine.”  The 8-course menu will be available for €135- per person (excluding beverages).

Schilo van Coevorden: “This anniversary year, various chefs from the absolute world-top of gastronomy are coming to Taiko. Various chefs from various disciplines who have inspired me in my career path. It is an absolute honour to cooking together with these great chefs. “

About Taiko Cuisine

Taiko Cuisine, the Contemporary Asian Inspired restaurant by chef Schilo van Coevorden at the Conservatorium hotel, takes its name from the old Japanese drums with their fabulous rhythm. Every weekend, a Taiko drum-player accompanies the intense, yet refined, Asian flavours of Schilo’s dishes with melodic, atmospheric sounds. The style of the menu and kitchen has evolved over the years, influenced by different cuisines from all over the world. The basis, however, always lay and still lies in classic and often simple methods of preparation, which showcase great respect for the purity of fresh local and seasonal products.
