Heinz Reitbauer, Austria

Christian Bau, France
Like most notable European chefs, Bau's journey began with an apprenticeship that landed him his first kitchen jobs. He was drafted to the military in Germany, where he worked in the mess hall kitchens before he was discharged back into the fine dining environment. From there, he earned three Michelin stars at a restaurant that was eventually renamed to "Viktor's Fine Dining by Christian Bau."
