He then did a cooking apprenticeship and sat in not only in Germany but also in Belgium. He passed his master chef exam as the best of his year . He even received an award from the Bavarian State Government for this. Since 2008, his restaurant has even had a Michelin star from the Michelin Guide. That alone shows what a high level this star is on. He’s more than just a TV chef and really knows his stuff.
