We asked Michael a couple of questions about his cooking style, his favourite ingredients, and his top suppliers.
My cuisine has a classic foundation, mixed with influences from all over the world.
What's your favourite dish to make?
Duck, and all its parts. Chest, tongue, liver, heart, stomach.
What is your favourite ingredient to work with?
I love the variety of ingredients I work with. I am most happy to work with seasonal products.
Who is one of your top suppliers or producers?
We order most of our products from our suppliers Rungis Express, Frischparadies, and Deutsche See. Our products must always be of the same quality. We like to buy freshwater fish from the local fishermen, and meat grown in our region, from our trusted butcher.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced in your culinary career?
Our restaurant has had a Michelin star for more than 40 years, and we are working hard to keep it that way for many years to come.
Which gastronomic trend are you excited about the most?
Sustainability and vegetarian cuisine will become more and more important in the future.
If you could only eat one dish for the rest of your life, what would that be?
The easiest would be great bread with very good butter. I've enjoyed eating duck for the past 20 years, and that will definitely continue for the next 20 years.
What’s one thing in the area that your guests absolutely need to see or do?
I would recommend visitors to go to the Rheingau with its many great wineries, as well as the Loreley, the Germania, Bierbrich Castle, and Neroberg.
Thank you, Michael.
