Our multinational kitchen team reflects the concept of our house, which is based on a harmonious coexistence of different culinary traditions and respects their independence.
Chef Sven Messerschmidt has won his Michelin stars with contemporary, French-influenced nouvelle cuisine, but is very open-minded and curious about Asian influences. Dennis Kasprzak, who has worked for YI Fine Dining since its foundation and held the position of chef for a while, is no different.
Their Chinese counterpart Chong Zhang ensures that authentic Chinese ingredients, cooking techniques and flavours flow into the composition of the menus.
He is a representative of Jiangsu cuisine from Eastern China, where special attention is paid to delicate textures that melt on the tongue. However, he is also very familiar with many other regional Chinese cuisines, which have only one thing in common: the preparation time for a dish can often last several days, but the cooking time is usually very short.
The menus that this team cooks with passion and eagerness to experiment are as diverse as they are. Chinese refinement in cooking techniques, aromatic Thai spice combinations, Japanese product perfection – they combine all this with regional ingredients and classic European top cuisine to create a harmonious whole.
