Good food, enjoyment and excellent cooking are more popular than ever in Germany. An association of young top chefs - the Jeunes Restaurateurs d'Europe (JRE) - has made a significant contribution to this development.
More than 40 years ago, young dedicated chefs joined forces to give new impulses to the European culinary art and the joy of culinary delight. The efforts of the Jeunes Restaurateurs over four decades have paid off. With currently 83 members, the Jeunes Restaurateurs form one of the strongest JRE national associations.
From Sylt to Oberstdorf, from Dresden to Cologne, the young chefs have changed German culinary culture forever. Many guests appreciate the dedication of the chefs, who have recognized the diversity of the regional cuisine and develop it further in a tradition-conscious and innovative way.
The current Guide Michelin honors the performance of the German JRE members with a total of 54 stars. "We offer our guests a unique atmosphere of enjoyment, both in the urban bistro and in the rural gourmet palace," says Alexander Huber, President of the German section. The JRE restaurant and hotel guide provides an overview of the outstanding quality and the wide range of offers of the German Jeunes Restaurateurs.
Values such as sustainability and regionality were lived by the association long before they reached global significance. The Jeunes Restaurateurs work together with local producers and are committed to the preservation of biodiversity and the conscious use of resources in production and preparation. In this context, they founded the JRE Genussnetz (JRE Network of Enjoyment), which aims to promote cooperation with regional producers.
