German-born Andreas Seidel began his love affair with food early on while traveling throughout Europe with his family. The exposure to different cuisines and cultures helped him find his way to Culinary College at 15, where he graduated with a Certified Chef Degree in Culinary Arts and an AS in General Studies.

Several years ago, after establishing himself on the German culinary scene and earning Munich’s culinary arts achievement award, Chef Andreas moved to New York City and quickly formed ties with some of the world’s top chefs. Chef Andreas gives much credit to his mentors, especially the first chef he worked for in Germany who taught him classic French cooking techniques and built his foundation. He also notes his times while working at Montrachet and Jean-George as influential times in his career.
