Kim Wejendorp

Kim Wejendorp is the Head of R&D at Amass Restaurant in Copenhagen, Denmark – the restaurant from former noma Chef de Cuisine, Matt Orlando.

A native of New Zealand, Kim has travelled extensively and called several places home, honing his cooking skills around the world before bringing his knowledge to the Amass team in 2013. At Amass, Kim has combined these skills with the power of science and a healthy dose of curiosity, to create a set of “new culinary building blocks” from what most people consider as rubbish. Be it coffee grounds, used lemon peels, herb stems, or other socalled kitchen scraps or by-products, Kim will find a way of turning them into something delicious.
