Originally from Germany, Carsten Alexander Kypke will bring a breath of fresh air and passion to The Chedi Andermatt. The Berlin-born chef was most recently Executive Chef at the Waldorf Astoria in his hometown, where he was responsible for the hotel's ROCA restaurant. Prior to this, Carsten gained experience at the 5-star Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom and established 'Das LOFT' as one of the hottest 'places to be' in the Austrian capital thanks to his culinary creativity. He has also worked in the Swiss capital as Executive Sous Chef at the Bellevue Palace in Bern.
In addition to stints across Europe, Carsten has honed his craft around the world, working in Dubai, UAE, and Turks and Caicos island. Through these experiences he has developed his style and a particular interest in Asian-inspired cuisines. This appreciation is what led him to The Chedi Andermatt.
