* 24. Aug 1970, German, Chef
Three times "Chef of the Year," 19 Gault Millau points, 2 Michelin stars - an unprecedented success for a female chef in Switzerland or anywhere else. Tanja Grandits is at the very top and dominates a male domain with a lot of subtlety, joy, team spirit, herbs from her own garden and her visual idea of monochrome plating. "It must be simple, not complicated, imaginative, not conventional, harmonious, not strained". The "Stucki" in Basel, Switzerland, is an exceptional restaurant, run by an exceptional chef, destined for an exceptional experience and worth every detour.
Tanja has a daughter and lives on the second floor of her restaurant "Stucki".
