In 'My Way: From the Gutters to the Stars', Berlin-based Tim Raue traces his journey from street kid to two-star Michelin chef and owner of the eponymous restaurant ranked number 34 on the list of the World's 50 Best Restaurants.
Head chef at one of Berlin's best restaurants at the age of twenty-three, Raue earned the accolade Highest Climber of the Year in 1998, and, in 2007, was named Chef of the Year by Gault Millau. He earned his Michelin stars only two years after opening Restaurant Tim Raue in 2010. Raue illustrates his story with dozens of family photos, and with stunning images of Berlin, Singapore - the source of his culinary inspiration - and his extraordinary Asian-influenced dishes.
His food is admired by New York Times food critic, Frank Rich, as well as Corey Lee, the three-star Michelin chef and owner of acclaimed restaurant Benu - who has incorporated one of Raue's recipes into his own repertoire. In addition to 70 recipes from Raue's kitchen, 'My Way' includes 45 recipes for gourmet essentials such as broths, sauces and infusions. Taken together, Raue's story, his food, and these brilliant colour images make My Way a journey worth following.
