At 24, he became one of the youngest chefs in European history to attain the title Master Chef de Cuisine.

Acclaimed for winning several coveted European awards and for his dedication to demystifying classic cuisine, Marcel worked in France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Hungary, Italy, and Liechtenstein before coming to the US in 1999. He has cooked at several internationally acclaimed restaurants including Emile Jung's three-star Michelin Au Crocodile, toured Europe with Olympia Master Chef François Geiger, and was chef to German Chancellor Helmut Kohl.

Marcel consults worldwide. For more information, visit

Says Marcel, "My East German roots left an indelible mark on my career. It was in the challenges of creating unique dishes with limited products and equipment that my creativity was born. It was in working with only the produce we could grow ourselves that I developed an appreciation for seasonal cooking. And it was in experiencing food as a precious commodity that I learned to respect and conserve it, and why today, 15 years after reunification, I still love experimenting with a wealth of exotic ingredients. For me, the ability to work with food is a privilege never to be taken for granted."
