How and when it all began

Robert Speth was born in Ravensburg, Germany. He finished an apprenticeship as a pastry chef in Ravensburg before training to become a chef under Albert Bouley at the Waldhorn. He completed stints in La Napoule under Louis Outhier and in Munich under Heinz Winkler at the Tantris restaurant. He then headed the Party Service department of the hotel Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof in Frankfurt.
Having worked in the restaurant "Chesery" in Gstaad since 1984, Robert Speth has steadily and persistently cooked his way up to the top: In 1998, he was awarded a Michelin star and in 2005, GaultMillau named him "Chef of the Year".
