Anton Mosimann worked throughout Europe, Canada, the Far East and Japan before he came to London from his native Switzerland. Aged 28, he was appointed Maître Chef de Cuisine of the Dorchester, the youngest ever to hold such a prestigious position. And there he was awarded two Michelin stars; a first for a hotel restaurant outside France.
His healthy cuisine, known as Cuisine Naturelle, brought him much media attention, including two cookery series on primetime British television, as well as countless television appearances internationally. His autobiography and twelfth book, Life Is a Circus, was published in 2017.
In 1988 he acquired Mosimann’s and created a private members’ club in a converted Scottish Presbyterian church in London’s Belgravia. He went on to establish Mosimann’s Party Service and received the Royal Warrant of Appointment to HRH The Prince of Wales for catering in 2000.
Mosimann has cooked for five Presidents of the United States of America, all of the British Royal Family, five British Prime Ministers and most of Europe’s heads of state. He has received countless accolades including the OBE in 2004; the Catey Lifetime Achievement Award; Officer, National Ordre du Merite Agricole (France).
In June 2016, The Swiss Education Group opened a permanent 3-storey wing at the Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland in Le Bouveret near Lake Geneva. It is dedicated to preserving and displaying The Mosimann Collection. Thousands of items related to Anton Mosimann’s culinary passion and professional career, including the 50 gold medals that he has won over the years, are available to students and professionals. Mosimann also has one of the world’s most extensive libraries of over 6,000 cookery books, dating back to the 15th century.
