As a teenager, Raue could be found roaming the streets of Berlin with the notorious „36 Boys“ gang. These days, however, he chooses to command a gang of skilled cooks at his Tim Raue restaurant, with whom he conjures up dangerously good aromatic cuisine.
His Asian-inspired cuisine, which combines Japanese product perfection with Chinese kitchen philosophy and the diversity of Thai flavours, wows his followers far beyond the boundaries of Berlin. At the tender age of 23, he became head chef for the first time, and just one year later he was named Newcomer of the Year by the gourmet magazine Der Feinschmecker. A string of other awards soon followed – in 2007, for example, Tim Raue was awarded the title of Chef of the Year by Gault Millau and earned his first Michelin star. Since 2010, Raue has been running the Tim Raue restaurant with his wife. Last year followed the title Chef of the Year 2011, awarded by Der Feinschmecker gourmet magazine, and Mr Raue has now collected 19 points from Gault Millau.
