Meet our new Executive Chef David Haase
David Haase has joined Heritage Boutique Marlborough Vintners Hotel as the new executive chef.
David trained in fine dining in his home country of Germany and has worked in two one star Michelin restaurants in his career to date. One being the Hotel am Schlossgarten Stuttgart and the other hotel restaurant HirShen Stuttgart.
He came to New Zealand in 2007 to take up the position of sous chef at Herzog Estate Winery on just a one year contract, but fell in love with New Zealand and stayed.
For the last three years he has been head chef at Wither Hills Winery and now takes up the new role at Heritage Boutique Marlborough Vintners Hotel to run his own kitchen.
David is excited about his new challenge and is inspired by the hotel’s own vegetable garden, orchard and olive grove. He is also passionate about utilising produce.
”Marlborough has fantastic local produce and the menus I create will be heavily influenced by seasonal, fresh, local produce,” says David.
“We are excited about this opportunity to have David join our team to enhance our reputation as a truly gourmet boutique hotel,” says Tracy Purcell general manager of Heritage Boutique Marlborough Vintners Hotel.
