Based in Bloemfontein, South Africa, Jürgen developed his passion for cooking while working in the hospitality industry after finishing school. After ten years honing his skills, he found that the pressure of cooking professionally meant prioritizing speed over quality and inhibited his talents. Leaving the profession he moved into banking but never lost his passion for creating wonderful dishes.
He now enjoys entertaining friends with good food, which, according to his diners, is always two levels better than the average restaurant chef’s special. He also dreams of opening a Medieval-themed restaurant for university and college students.
