For a long time, he was Europe’s youngest two-star chef, and he continues to delight diners with his award-winning cuisine, combining high-quality craftsmanship with sophisticated individuality. Rolf Fliegauf’s future career became clear at an early age. As a child, he enjoyed nothing more than spending his time in the kitchen of his parents’ restaurant. Today, he is one of Switzerland’s most decorated chefs, having been awarded two stars by the Michelin Guide for both his Ecco Ascona and St. Moritz restaurants.
Rolf Fliegauf resembles a musician at the piano in the way he plays with textures and temperatures. He loves to experiment. Yet despite being an exponent of haute cuisine, he always remains in touch with the principles of popular cuisine – an approach he describes as “purist aroma cuisine”.
