Andreas learned his craft at the renowned Technical Vocational School for Hotel Management in Wiesbaden, Germany, followed by an apprenticeship at the city’s must celebrated restaurant, Gambrinus. During this time, he served his compulsory one-year service in the German military before properly entering the haute cuisine profession and being shaped into a consummate professional and a creative culinary force that he is today. He worked for some of the most renowned restaurants in Germany and United Kingdom including La Val D’Or, Guldental, Germany, Anton Mosiman’s Belfry Club in London and Hotel Nassauer Hof, Wiesbaden, Germany.
Besides his impeccable credentials as a chef, Andreas’s humility and desire to continually learn led him to successfully pursue a prestigious Master’s Degree in Culinary Art from ltöetingen Hotel Management School, Bavaria. Among his preferred recreational pursuits are traveling, diving, cycling and playing golf. All these experiences, people skills and zest for life, he now puts into The Peninsula Bangkok to ensure sophisticated wining and dining for the hotel’s guests and clients.
