In 1997 he joined Vau in Berlin. In 2002, he came as a chef in the l’ Orquivit in Bonn, where he was awarded the Michelin Guide of 2005 with his first Michelin star.
“Having watched documentaries on Chef Heiko and after the distinct pleasure of his first guest dinner with us in March this year, I admire his dedication to perfection, being under pressure every day to deliver a two-star Michelin experience,” compliments Torsten Richter, Cluster General Manager of Naladhu and Anantara Resorts in South Male Atoll. “Chef Heiko has a contemporary plating style, which is in keeping with the elegant surrounds of The Living Room and timeless nature of Naladhu. It is an honour for us that Chef Heiko will be returning for special appearance, cooking solely for just 16 guests each night. It will be truly a memorable event, and one which places The Maldives high on the international map for culinary excellence.”
