Henrik Thostrup developed a keen interest in food and wine at an early age in his native Denmark. It’s easy to see why; Henrik’s family has been in the Danish hospitality industry for almost 10 generations, owning restaurants, hotels and bars.
His studies in culinary arts steered Henrik to an Executive Chef designation and earned him a Bronze Medal in the Culinary Arts. These qualifications led Henrik to become Chef for the United States Air Force Officers’ Club at Sonderstrom Air Base in Greenland, where he met Clark Trim. Henrik’s career took him to Germany, where he continued to hone his culinary skills in food and wine across Europe. He’s lived in Little Rock since 1992.
