Daniel Reiter​

Founder and head of the Ziguri Cooking School.

Daniel is an authentic advocate of plant-based cuisine and, thanks to high-quality ingredients, conjures up creative and, above all, tasty dishes.

He also shows this to his participants in his vegan cooking courses.

What distinguishes him above all is his emphatic and open approach to his guests from the very first second. Daniel allows not only to show new sides of our culinary, but thanks to composure and humor allows to completely carry away a round.

Cooking for me is creativity, passion and magic. Because behind every dish there is a chain of work steps, which find completion on a beautifully arranged plate.

Jürgen Gschwendtner

Founder and CEO of Ziguri Cooking school.

Jürgen learned to cook from his grandma when he was a little boy. His favorite thing was always in the kitchen – until now!

This was also the reason for his long training path from culinary apprenticeship to master chef, AMA grill trainer and certified meat sommelier.

He was cooking all over the place. For seven years Jürgen worked for Do & Co in the catering team of the Formula 1, he was on a cruise ship, and to this day – now a Haubenkoch – he works as a kitchen director in the famous Viennese Ringstrasse restaurant “Meissl und Schadn”.

Jürgen Gschwendtner can cook anything, but he is most passionate about Viennese cuisine. And it is precisely on this topic that he offers cooking seminars with a historical background in YOUR Kitchen under the label “Kochen wie Damals” – on the trail of the monarchy.

From knocking up schnitzel to baking Kaiserschmarren, including a fun history lesson, everything Austrian cooking history has to offer is here.
