Danish chef Kamilla Seidler opened her own restaurant, Lola, in Copenhagen in 2019, with a menu of globally influenced dishes based on organic Danish produce.
Prior to that, Seidler made her name as head chef at restaurant Gustu in La Paz, Bolivia, taking over from Claus Meyer. There she was named the Best Female Chef by Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants in 2016. Social gastronomy and showcasing Bolivian cuisine was at the heart of the project, and continues to inform her culinary activism today.
Seidler has dedicated most of her life to hospitality, as her driving passion. She first began working in restaurants, aged 15, before undergoing formal training at the Copenhagen Hospitality College aged 21. After graduating, she worked at several well-known restaurants such as Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons and Mugaritz.
