360GRAD FachAkademieGroßküche in Baden-Baden

Sensual, emotional and courageous

This year’s 360GRAD FachAkademieGroßküche seminar took place in Baden-Baden on October 29 and 30, 2023 with expert presentations by industry partners and an emotional finale by Antje de Vries, chef, gastronomy consultant and author. The experts from EnviroFALK gave a presentation on water treatment in commercial kitchens.

Food nomad De Vries

De Vries, the well-traveled food nomad, emphasized the great responsibility of gastronomy professionals, saying it is necessary to live ecology and social sustainability in the kitchens. Ultimately, gastronomy would have a major impact on people’s health. She demanded enjoyment instead of dogma. The turnaround is not to be achieved through discussion, but through an orientation towards more sustainability and a reorientation towards a plant-based food system. The technology and the concepts for this are available, but it is important to shape the future with courage and determination.

Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Dorint Hotels & Resorts Jörg Thomas Böckeler

In another guest lecture, Jörg Thomas Böckeler, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Dorint Hotels & Resorts, spoke in favour of using digitalization and technology in the production area to counteract the shortage of workers in kitchens. When the baby boomer generation retires, an employee entry/exit ratio of 1:6 can be expected. A new view of employees within the corporate culture is necessary, he said, emphasizing the economic importance of the hospitality industry.

The excursion took the participants to the new SWR Media Center, whose company catering is about to open. Benjamin Schaller, owner of Ingenieurbüro Schaller and project engineer responsible for the catering concept, gave an exclusive insight.
