Michael Oettinger

A Michelin-starred chef-owner who conjures up delicious French cuisine

Chef Michael Oettinger was born in Fellbach-Schmiden in 1979. He started his cooking career by working as an apprentice in the kitchen of his parents' business, Hotel Hirsch. Having developed his culinary finesse, Michael took over the management of Oettinger's Restaurant in 2005, together with his brother Martin. Receiving one Michelin star for his high-quality cuisine, he now works his magic as a head chef. His brother Martin takes care of the commercial affairs.

Success does not lie in worshiping the ashes, but in passing on the fire.
