The Top Chef Aruba contestant of Nos Clubhuis is Chef Coliene (30).
Coliene Kievit was born in Middelharnis, which is located southwest of the Netherlands. She studied Hospitality Management and in 2012 decided to relocate to Aruba. She worked at several restaurants in the last few years, like Madame Janette, Hadicurari, Café the Plaza, MooMba Beach and finally Nos Clubhuis, the home of the local fishermen. She is our youngest contestant, but offers an equally impressive dining experience.
