The series of chef interviews continues with Joachim Wissler. Joachim's restaurant Vendome gained 3 Michelin stars in 2004 and was rated 19/20 in the Gault Millault.  While one usually associates France with the very finest 3 star Michelin restaurants, I think that the average standard is Germany is perhaps the highest of any country, essentially because there is not a single duffer amongst them. France has wonderful high points, but also places like Paul Bocuse and Georges Blanc, which are in my view some way below 3 star level. This kind of disappointment never happens in Germany. For me the best of the three star places in Germany is Vendome, at which I had a fantastic meal this summer. Click here to see the interview.
