Günter Botzenhart began his culinary career in his home town of Ulm in Germany, serving his apprenticeship in a popular Mövenpick Restaurant.
Once qualified, he moved to Geneva in Switzerland, again working for Mövenpick. In 1981, he arrived in Guernsey, where after a short time he became Head Chef at the renowned Frégate Restaurant. In 1999, after fifteen years at La Frégate, Günter left to become Chef Proprietor of Le Nautique Restaurant, which has been in his ownership ever since.
Günter, who has lived continuously in Guernsey for thirty-three years, is married to a locally-born wife and has five daughters . . . . something of an achievement in itself!
