Head Chef


Michael started his career in a small family business. He traveled the world to train and explore every facet of his profession. After working in many Michelin-starred restaurants in Hamburg, the Saarland, Bangkok, the Netherlands, and Portugal, he returned to his adopted home – the city of Hamburg.

Michael has joined THE NEW INSTITUTE because he enjoys that so many cultures come together and he is excited to be a part of it.
