2019 was an exciting, busy and very successful year, involving a lot of travel, every single trip being a highlight in its own right.
In addition to my many years of engagement as a brand ambassador for PÖDÖR Öils, at the beginning of the year I became an ambassador for Difference Coffee, the London-based importer and roaster that, in my opinion, produces the best coffee in the world. I also became a culinary ambassador of LSG in summer, one of the largest airline caterers in the world. From the beginning of next year also for FrieslandCampina and for their brand Debic.
My year began with a trip to Ecuador and a visit to the rainforest, followed by a multi-day event at Zazu, a Relais & Chateaux restaurant in Quito.
The Jockey Club regularly extends invitations to some of the world’s best and prominent chefs. It was our third visit to this very traditional club, and we were delighted to be able to welcome more than 450 captivated guests over the three days. We will undoubtedly return again soon!
I would have liked to have reported at this point that a new Restaurant by Thomas Bühner was about to open. But unfortunately those plans fell victim to the demonstrations in Hong Kong that broke out then and are still continuing.
Two more exciting events took place before the summer holidays: one on Santorini, the other at Monte Rei Golf & Country Club in the south of Portugal, just before the summer break.
In November, we set out again for a trip to South Korea, where we carried out three highly successful gala evenings – two at the JW Marriott Hotels in the megacity Seoul and one at the Sheraton Incheon.
All in all, an exciting year, full of highlights and unforgettable moments. I am very grateful to be able to experience all these things and to get to know so many special people on my travels. But I am equally grateful to be able to come back to Osnabrück, which continues to be my home, where I can recover from my journeys and recharge my batteries – and, above all, spend time with my wife.
I am already planning the next events for 2020, as well as some new projects. After my plans for Hong Kong came to nothing, I continued to develop my ideas for a new restaurant concept, and am already in talks about it. I also have plans for a book project and another accompanied trip, this time to Tokyo. Should you be interested in joining me, make sure you have a few days free in October.
I wish you all a wonderful Advent and Christmas. If you need any gift ideas, feel free to browse my online shop.
