Our Head Chef Edip Sigl

A star chef who lives and loves the Chiemgau.
Since 2021 Edip dedicates himself with a lot of ingenuity and passion for detail to his task as chef in our 2-star gourmet restaurant es:senz. 9 months after opening es:senz, Edip and his team were pleased to receive the 2-star award from the Guide Michelin. Getting the best out of every component of a dish is one of his particular strengths. Supplemented with fine refined sauces & essences, Edip Sigl and his team conjure up exciting dishes such as Chiemsee venison on tomato kombucha or saddle of venison from the local hunter on raisin sauce. "Chiemgau pur" and "Chiemgau goes around the world" - the names of the two menus already give an idea that the region is the focus of Edip Sigl's cuisine. He knows how to bring the Chiemgau onto the plate in a modern and creative way. Feel free to drop by - we look forward to seeing you.
‘In es:senz there is a story behind every dish, recounted wonderfully on your plate
. It starts with our close connection to
producers from the region – and mutual exchange with regard to which product
we choose and work with responsibly. I am very thankful to
put my own stamp on each dish and am delighted to
create culinary gems from Chiemgau’s unique pleasure-filled experiences.’

Edip Sigl - Executive Chef

If there is one feature that runs like a common thread through Edip Sigl’s career, it is his work in the best restaurants in the country. All the points in his career path have been in star-awarded restaurants – including the Gut Lärchenhof in Pulheim, Hugos in Berlin and Residenz Heinz Winkler in Aschau. His cooking style was lastingly forged from his travels across the globe in 2012, from which Edip gained countless insights and culinary inspirations. After that he worked in Restaurant Les Deux in Munich, where in 2019 he was promoted to Head Chef, achieving two Michelin stars.

es:senz Team

Edip Sigl had already worked with the majority of his team before coming to es:senz. They know one another, are in harmony with one another and know that they can rely on one another. This is how perfect team work comes about, with every individual playing a part, placing each individual component of every dish on your plate, at just the right time.
