Dutch chef Sergio Herman inherited his love of cooking from his father who he remembers as a passionate chef. After graduating from Ter Groene Poorte culinary school in Bruges, Sergio gained experience working in the kitchens of a number of top restaurants in The Netherlands.

Soon after, Sergio began working with his father in restaurant Oud Sluis in Sluis (Zeeland), later taking on the role of head chef. During his time at the helm of restaurant Oud Sluis, Sergio has helped the world-renowned dining room gain three Michelin stars and a place on San Pellegrino’s prestigious World 50 Best Restaurants list. In December 2013, Sergio announced the closure of restaurant Oud Sluis in order to concentrate on his other restaurant concepts Pure C and La Chapelle, recently renamed The Jane, as well as his culinary publishing house, Minestrone.
