LSG Group has announced a new partnership with German three-star chef Harald Wohlfahrt. The caterer's chefs will work with Wohlfahrt on several upcoming events and projects, including its Global Culinary Excellence Academy (led by the Global Culinary Excellence Team, a network of hundreds of chefs hailing from 56 countries) and the 2019 World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo, as well as its premium offering.

Wohlfahrt has been hailed as "the pioneer of contemporary German gourmet cuisine," according to LSG, and was awarded three Michelin stars for 25 consecutive years for his work as Chef de Cuisine at the Traube Tonbach restaurant in the Black Forest region of Germany. In 2005 he was awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany for his promotion of culinary excellence throughout his career.

“The partnership with Harald Wohlfahrt supports us to stay connected to the highest culinary standards and network," said Jochen Müller, COO of LSG Group, in a November 6 press release. “We look forward to working with him to refine and enhance our premium offering as well as our in-house culinary education.”

LSG has worked with a three-star chef previously, partnering with Sven Elverfeld of The Ritz-Carlton Wolfsburg last year.
