chef Wolfgang Grobauer I Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia*****GL
Born in Zurich but raised in Munich he learned his craft at the legendary Grand Hotel Continental in the Bavarian capital. Further milestones of his career comprised some of Germany’s and France’s finest restaurants such as Le Canard (Hamburg), Le Gourmet (Munich), Le Chantecler of Hotel Negresco (Nice) and Le Dôme in Paris.
To date Wolfgang Grobauer has achieved three Michelin Stars accolades. He has been awarded with a Michelin star for his haute cuisine at the Landhaus Dill (Hamburg), Cöllns Austerstuben (Hamburg) and U Santa Maria (Corsica).
Deeply influenced by famous chefs Otto Koch and Jacques Maximin and his many years in France, his culinary preferences are clearly francophile. After several years on the Canary Islands he has also added classic Spanish delicacies to his repertoire. Therefore his interpretations of quintessential dishes such as salade niçoise, the 2-course bouillabaisse menu, ropa vieja, variations of ibérico or the 5-course lobster menu are a must on the Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia a la carte menu.
Wolfgang Grobauer’s Mediterranean gourmet cuisine is characterized by its emphasis on authentic flavours and fresh first class ingredients. All dishes are prepared with organic and locally sourced ingredients.
Fruits and vegetables originate from a local finca in Montaña la Data, beef from Asturias and lamb from Segovia.
