The intention to create perfection
On Joachim Wissler’s homepage you can find the following principles: Creativity – the drive behind all thoughts and attempts to change things. Flawlessness – the attempt to create perfection. Willingness to experiment – the courage and freedom to attempt things that only become meaningful after being completed. Curiosity – the persistence to learn, experience and understand new things. Authenticity – distinctiveness and clarity as the most important criteria for both the new and the tried and tested. Tradition – the preservation of knowledge as the foundation for the future.
These statements perfectly describe Wissler’s work and philosophy. And they are realised in his grand, gourmet menus, which can surprise even the most frequent Vendôme guest from time to time. For a long time Joachim Wissler forms the peak of German cookery for most critics. Moreover, as the flagship of the second generation of great German chefs, he also led this elite internationally. Apart from him, no other German chef has ever been among the top 10 of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants. To this day, he represents what is happening at the creative front end of the restaurant scene between avant-garde and classical background.
