The art of painting in flavours

Born in the town of Loffenau in the lush hills of Germany’s Black Forest, Harald cultivated a love of natural produce on his grandparents’ farm that continues to inspire his creativity today. Wielding classic techniques with modern creative flair he aims to “create a perfect starting position for a succession of taste experiences to unfold in every dish” using sauces “like a painter uses paint”.

Michelin Record

Following an apprenticeship at some of the top Michelin-starred restaurants in Germany and France, Harald became the Executive Chef of the “Schwarzwaldstube” in Baiersbronn at the age of just 24, taking it to become a 3 Michelin Star restaurant by 1992 and repeating that achievement for 25 consecutive years. That’s a record still unmatched in Germany and almost anywhere else worldwide.
