Blancpain bestows Michelin Guide 2022 Mentor Chef Award in Hamburg
On this occasion, Blancpain was delighted to honour the former two-star chef Johannes King with the 2022 Mentor Chef Award, in recognition of his dedication to passing on his own knowledge to the younger generations of chefs. During his 21 years working as chef de cuisine at the Söl’ringhof restaurant in Reitum on the island of Sylt, Johannes King became a mentor for many young talents – including Jan-Philipp Berner, who currently leads the kitchen of the Söl’ringhof.
By sharing his passion and experience, and devoting himself to the training of his staff, Johannes King secured the transmission of important skills and abilities to grow tomorrow's greatest chefs. Wolfgang Theis, Brand Manager Blancpain Germany, presented the award with great enthusiasm, along with a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms wall clock to the winner.
