Iris Bettinger

An award-winning owner-chef with a passion for French cuisine

The cooking style of top chef Iris Bettinger is versatile. Sometimes influenced by French classics, sometimes seasoned with regional accents, sometimes perfectly refined with Far Eastern nuances. Whatever direction it takes, one thing is for certain: her food is always imaginative. The seasonal fruits and vegetables chef Iris uses in her kitchen are purchased at the local weekly market, and the organic meat is purchased from small farms in the region. In the circle of Jeunes Restaurateurs, Iris is one of the few women. She delights her diners with her creative gourmet cuisine in restaurant Reuter. In 2014, she was named “Best Chef of the Year”. 

I always cook from my stomach. Not too complex, but rather straightforward and clear.
