Kamilla Seidler

Kamilla Seidler

Chef, Copenhagen


Am I Good Enough?

Kamilla Seidler, named the Best Female Chef in Latin America by the 50 Best Restaurants List, has led kitchens the world over, and has won widespread recognition for her work as head chef of Gustu, a built from scratch culinary academy and fine dining restaurant in La Paz, Bolivia. Despite the accolades, she, like a lot of us, constantly questions whether she is good enough.

Here, she shares her journey from the active role as an instructor and leader in developing the Bolivian food movement to returning home to Denmark. Seidler’s journey is an example of how providing an opportunity for nurturing passion within people is important no matter how you do it, and that the reward lies in watching those individuals develop and push themselves.
