Tim Mälzer is a renowned German television chef and restaurateur. Every now and then the celebrity chef also makes headlines.

TV chef, cookbook author, presenter: Tim Mälzer is a talent in the kitchen who likes to try his hand at TV shows like “Kitchen Impossible”. But the chef is also successful away from the cameras, as Mälzer owns several of his own restaurants in Germany. 

Before he became self-employed as a restaurateur with his own establishments, the Mälzer, who was born in Elmshorn in 1971, completed an apprenticeship as a chef at the Hamburg Hotel InterContinental. He then worked at the Ritz Hotel in London and, together with Jamie Oliver, at the Neal Street Restaurant. In 2002 Mälzer opened his first restaurant “The White House” in Övelgönne, which he ran until 2007.

The star chef’s now six restaurants are spread across the state capital Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Düsseldorf. Mälzer offers various culinary styles in the respective restaurants.

Mälzer’s restaurant “Chiaro” is located in the capital. You can find this in the luxury hotel Hotel de Rome, at Behrenstraße 37, Berlin – very close to the State Opera. In addition to Italian cuisine, the focus here is on a family atmosphere. 

Since 2009, fans of the television chef have been able to dine at the “Bulerei” in Hamburg. Tim Mälzer’s restaurant can be found at Lagerstraße 34b in the Schanzenviertel. Meat dishes such as steaks and salads are on offer here.

HSV fans can enjoy Mälzerische cuisine when they visit the Platin Lounge by Tim Mälzer, which is located directly in the HSV stadium in Hamburg. Here the star chef provides catering for the football fans, who can also enjoy the view of the pitch in the lounge. 

Also in Hamburg is the “Barmeiers” café, which is also owned by Mälzer. At Hayns Park, at Eppendorfer Landstrasse 180, visitors can enjoy the beer garden atmosphere in the warm months, eat tarte flambée, pizza or coffee and cake and even rent paddle boards to sail across the Alster. In bad weather, the “Barmeiers” unfortunately remains closed. 

Tim Mälzer’s “Hausmann’s” has two locations. In both Düsseldorf and Frankfurt, guests can dine at the respective airports. The concept is a mixture of restaurant, take-away and bar, with home cooking playing a major role.

Fans of the television chef can also dine at “Pezzo di Pane” at Frankfurt Airport. In addition to pasta, pinsa and salad, there is coffee, aperitivo and ice cream to convey the Italian attitude to life.

Since May 2024, there has also been an ice cream parlor owned by star chef Tim Mälzer. The “Mälzer

Tim Mälzer is known on “Kitchen Impossible” for his cooking skills, but also for his outbursts. In the episode on April 7th against Edi Frauneder, Mälzer caused a stir by not even trying the dish that had to be cooked, which was presented in a black box at the beginning of each episode.

Usually, professional chefs test the dish first and try to identify all the flavors. In this episode, Mälzer’s actions backfired on him. There was a Franzbrötchen in the box. However, not from the classic dough, as Tim Mälzer assumed, but from sourdough, which cannot be seen with the naked eye.

With only 3.1 points, the star chef wasn’t really able to impress the testers and, despite realizing it at the last minute, couldn’t change it.
