Christopher Knuth grew up in the small town Blankenese on the outskirts of Hamburg on the Elbe River, which influenced his cooking style as the river introduced seafood into Blankenese traditional cooking. Christopher's choice to pursue the art of cooking was born out of a desire to honour his brother, who was training to become a chef but was killed in a tragic accident at only age 17. Having worked at some of Blankenese's most historic hotels, including the prestigious Hotel Jacob, Chris' international experience more than qualifies him to introduce the Blankenese cooking style to Australians.
