The Chef

Hans Schweitzer

Hans Schweitzer decided in his teens that cooking was what he wished to excel at. Since then he has achieved his aim in a diverse array of establishments. After training at the prestigious Munich Hotel School in Germany, Hans gained the title of Maitre de Cuisine by the age of 25. He went on to work at restaurants worldwide in an Executive Chef capacity, from the Teheran Arya in Iran to his own Restaurant, Table in Germany, where he was awarded a Michelin star at the age of 29.

A twice-Gold Medallist at the Chef's Olympics,Hans has amassed an impressive repertoire of culinary skills, including training as a Confiseur and Chocolatier in Switzerland and Paris. In the late eighties he opened the acclaimed Confiserie Schweitzer in Cambridge followed by the hugely successful Michelin-starred Midsummer House, voted best restaurant in South England in its first year. Hans' culinary journey then drew him to Barbados, first as Executive Chef at the celebrity-frequented Sandy Lane Hotel, then as owner of the famous La Mer restaurant, before he was drawn back to Cambridge as Executive Chef, Queen's College. His travels now bring him to Cotto, where his skill, attention to detail and focus on freshness and flavour will no doubt render this step of his culinary adventure just as successful as the many others.
