On 9th of October the 13th edition of the exclusive cooking
contest 'Great Gourmet Award 2016' (Großer Gourmet Preis) took
place in Hamburg. 220 guests enjoyed the refined dinner cooked by
six top chefs of the German restaurant scene in the luxury
atmosphere of the renowned 'Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten'.
In the end, Germany's youngest chef with three Michelin stars,
Kevin Fehling, was the celebrated winner of the Award for the first
time. With his DSTB by Arnold & Son on the wrist the perfect
timing in the kitchen and during the glamorous Award ceremony was
guaranteed. Since 2015 the fan of refined elegant watches is brand
ambassador of Arnold & Son.
After earning his spurs at a series of fine-dining restaurants
in his native Bremen and elsewhere, Kevin Fehling spent ten years
as chef de cuisine at 'La Belle Époque' in Travemünde. Under his
stewardship, the restaurant was awarded three Michelin stars in the
space of just five years. In March 2015, Fehling announced that he
was opening his own restaurant, 'The Table', in Hamburg.
The wait has clearly been worth it. 'The Table' immediately won
recognition at the highest level and is listed with three stars in
the 2016 Michelin guide, making it one of just ten three-star
restaurants in the whole of Germany. One of the country's leading
gourmet magazines "The Feinschmecker" has named it "Restaurant of
the Year 2015" on the grounds of its unique position in the German
Kevin Fehling transforms every one of his dishes into an
emotional experience. As he describes it, "I aim to combine style,
innovation and perfect technique with superior craftsmanship and
the recurring element of surprise. I believe my approach to cooking
shares many of the values that set Arnold & Son apart in the
fine watchmaking segment, and it's one of the reasons I feel so
honoured to represent the brand."
'The Table' is named for a snake-like table that gives up to 20
guests an unimpeded view of the kitchen: transparency at its
highest level. It is also a quality demonstrated by the DSTB black
dial from the Arnold & Son Instrument Collection that Kevin
Fehling likes to wear at work. Leaving nothing to the imagination,
the DSTB showcases the exquisite true beat seconds mechanism on the
dial side. Like Kevin Fehling, Arnold & Son takes pride in
demonstrating its expertise to its best possible advantage.
