Michael Philipp

A Michelin-starred owner-chef with a passion for French cuisine

Top chef Michael Philipp is one of the most innovative and technically best chefs of the Mainfranken region. He doesn't use gimmicks or overwhelming amounts of spices, but each of his dishes becomes a work of aromatic art. Inspired by his Franconian roots, he mixes his basically classic French cuisine with a local touch. To chef Michael, the product's original flavour must be clearly recognizable in each dish. He is lucky to have access to an extensive range of local products. The Spessart region of southern Germany is rich with brook trout, lamb and game from the rough Rhön and berries, asparagus, cherries, and plums from Sommerhausen. 

Perfection is not achieved when nothing more can be added, but when nothing can be left out.

Philipp's cooking emphasizes local produce, with which he delivers exquisite dishes with great passion and expertise.
