NElson Müller

Star chef at ski & culinary delight in Wagrain-Kleinarl

Nelson Müller is a German star chef with Ghanaian roots. For him, home is not a place, but a feeling, an image or a melody. His very special philosophy is that everything from, for example, animals can be used - from nose to tail. He refuses throwing away or wasting food.

After completing his apprenticeship as a chef, Nelson Müller worked in the well-known star restaurants "Résidence" with Hénri Bach in Essen and "Orangerie" with Lutz Niemann in the Maritim-Hotel Timmendorfer Strand. It is no coincidence that the chef opened his restaurant "Schote" in the Ruhrgebiet in 2009. Because here has been appreciating the ever-developing cultural scene.

Already in 2011 he got a star from the Michelin Guide. Since 2014 you have been enjoying specialties from the Ruhrgebiet in the brasserie "Müllers auf der Rü" at the Rüttenscheider Stern in Essen.

In the "Nelson Müller Cooking School", many amateur cooks learn the art of cooking. No matter, whether you are interested in meat, vegetarian or Mediterranean food. Now guess, what he does in his "free time"? Exactly, he appears as a soul singer with his band.

Rudi Pichler 

The host of skiing & culinary delights in Wagrain-Kleinarl

Rudi Pichler comes from Kleinarl and is a local chef. He learned his trade from top chef Franz Aichhorn and worked with renowned chefs such as Schellhorn and Obauer. He has improved his skills in various restaurants. On a culinary voyage of discovery in South Africa, Rudi rediscovered baking bread and the passion for bread is greater today than ever before. In May 2018 the joint film work with Simon Tasek premiered in the local cinemas. In the movie "Lehrling der Zeit" (Apprentice of Time) he takes a mental journey back in time to the post-war period and learns a new understanding of the value of local food and the appreciation of food regains more importance for him. He reworks the existing products with today's possibilities. Thus, long forgotten culinary arts find their way into modern cuisine - traditional roots are combined with modern culinary art. The focus is on regionality.
