Marike initially studied her art in The Netherlands with a focus on bakery and confectionary. She moved to Bruges to finesse her skills as a pastry chef and chocolatier, after graduating and having worked with one of the funkiest Chocolatiers Dominique Persoone thenfound herself at one of the trendiest addresses in London under the counseling of Pierre Gagnaire. Before moving onto her next European destination in 2004, she added culinarily competitions to her flourishing bow. Coming out on top in the Dutch Pastry Award.

During her ‘Tour the France‘ she worked in the kitchen of Michelin-starred Restaurant Le Cinq at the Four Seasons George V in Paris, La Villa Madie in Cassis under Enrico Bernardo‘s watch, onto Hotel du Castellet and finally to the famed Maison Pic in valence with tutelage from worlds only female three-Michelin-starred Chef, Anne Sophie Pic and one of the man in the business she admires most, Pastry Chef Phillippe Rigollot.

During this tour she continued to compete in the most coveted industry contents, regularly featuring amongst the winners and of the particular note achieving first place in both the 2009 French selection and 2010 world final of at the C3 Valrhona’s Desserts for Restaurants Competition.

While being the Pastry Chef of the Michelin-starred-restaurant Caprice at the Four Seasons in Hong Kong she pursuits not only the dream of creating desserts for such a well known place, but also participating in the World Chocolate Masters.

Inspired by travels, Hong Kong, daily outdoor pursuits, and arts & design, she creates sweet experiences. With the textures and flavours in mind that come with the next season, she examines palates across cultures. At the same time, she taps into trends, which result in eclectic dishes. In defining taste it’s the combination of flavours, textures, cultures and individual palates that makes creating sweets a true challenge. In all creations, she questions what ‘sweet’ is.
