Taking up the baton for an icon like DER FEINSCHMECKER and helping it grow and develop has been a rewarding yet monumental task. I took the reins as editor-in-chief in 2020, signifying the start of a new generation for the magazine’s direction – always with a clear focus on striking the fine balance between innovation and continuity. As a firm fixture on the team for the past 15 years, I live and breathe DER FEINSCHMECKER and am acutely aware of its vast potential. In the future, I hope to work with the editorial team to help the brand continue to develop as a premium and versatile culinary experience for Germany’s leading gourmet community. There are a number of ways we can achieve this. For example, we plan on introducing a premium club and exclusive events. New digital formats. Curated independent recommendations from our knowledgeable editorial experts. A constant stream of new inspiration and trustworthy guides to cover all aspects of indulgence and living the high life. Gone are the days when fine dining and high-quality foods were the reserve of the elite – now, we can all enjoy the finer things in life!

As far as I’m concerned: indulgence isn’t a luxury, but a passion for the best products around.
