Top chef Hans Neuner is a real Portuguese. Although the cooking virtuoso is actually from Tyrol, the dishes he serves up at his Ocean restaurant on the Algarve are Portuguese through and through. His passion for organic ingredients from the region, and his simple but clever style have therefore not only earned him an excellent reputation among discerning gourmets, but two Michelin stars as well. "Bom proveito!"
In light of Neuner's past and his family environment, one could almost say he acquired his cooking talents in the cradle: he comes from a well-known Austrian family that has been working in gastronomy for four generations. Thus, it was more than just coincidence that he began a chef's apprenticeship at the gourmet restaurant Steigenberger Hotel Alpenkönig in Tyrol at the age of 15.
