New cookbook for three-Michelin-starred chef Christian Bau

When you have the chance to make a cookbook with a three-Michelin-starred chef, then your mood is bound to improve. When the chef in question is none other than Christian Bau, then you can't help but to put your hands on your head in sheer disbelief at your luck. But to show that we also put our hands on the camera, we shot a few making-of photos during the shoot. The cookbook will hit shelves in October - and we'll publish the results on our website then as well.

Portrait photography, or "when chefs get arrested…"

Christian Bau and Jan Hartwig, two three-Michelin-starred chefs from Germany came together to create a 4-Hands-Dinner at Schloss Berg. Just imagine the powerful symphony of flavors - a true explosion of taste.

Baking bread - crusts as crispy as our shots!
