Tim Raue is one of Germany’s most renowned chefs – which comes as no surprise. The Berlin chef, born in 1974, has redefined German haute cuisine, and is one of just a handful of German chefs who have made a name for themselves internationally.
As such, the Restaurant Tim Raue not only has two Michelin Stars, 19.5 Gault&Millau points and was named “Restaurant of the Year 2019” by FEINSCHMECKER – it has also been one of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants since 2016 – in fact, it is the only German restaurant in the top 50, ranking 40th.
Whats’s more, Tim Raue is the only German chef to date to whom the world-famous NETFLIX series, Chef’s Table, dedicated a complete episode. Raue has also won a permanent place on German television: He regularly appears in front of the camera on the successful VOX programme KITCHEN IMPOSSIBLE and is a jury member on the SAT1 programme THE TASTE. In the past 15 years, Raue has also published four books – including the autobiography “I know what hunger is” and the cookbook “My Way”.
In addition to his work as a star chef, Tim Raue is also active as an entrepreneur. For this, he was named “Restaurateur of the Year 2014” by the renowned gourmet guide Gault&Millau. Raue himself says: “The Tim Raue restaurant has let me fulfil a lifelong dream – but to me, my other projects mean culinary freedom and the opportunity to fully realize my many ideas with the help of my chefs.” In his role as culinary advisor, he therefore oversees the Brasserie Colette Tim Raue in Munich, Constance and Berlin as well as the Villa Kellermann in Potsdam. In 2016, the Asian restaurant concept HANAMI by Tim Raue was created on TUI’s Mein Schiff 5, which has since opened on three other ships in the fleet. Tim Raue is also a brand ambassador for METRO.
