Christian Hümbs. He is someone who likes to wear a cap, sneakers and a three-day beard. Someone who eats a French roll in the morning, or sometimes two. Very relaxed. And then there is the accurate Hümbs. The one who doesn't leave a single gram to chance in the kitchen. Weighs everything, really everything. A perfectionist. And one of the best pastry chefs Germany has to offer. We wanted him! 🙂

Juicy, warm and with lots of cinnamon - the cinnamon bun is probably one of the most popular pastries of all.

About the Art of Pastry - The Online Pastry Course with Christian Hümbs

For Christian Hümbs, it was clear from his childhood that he wanted to become a confectioner. With multiple facets, the native of Oberhausen began his career with a double training - first as a confectioner, then as a chef.

Christian Hümbs. He is someone who likes to wear a cap, sneakers and a designer stubble. Someone who eats a French roll in the morning, or sometimes two. Very relaxed. And then there is the accurate Hümbs. The one who doesn't leave a single gram to chance in the kitchen. Weighs everything, really everything. A perfectionist. And one of the best pastry chefs Germany has to offer. That's who WE wanted!

Where he has worked, the stars are at home. He worked for Johann Lafer at the "Stromburg", at Hamburg's "Haerlin", at "La Mer" on Sylt and as head pastry chef at Zurich's hotel "The Dolder Grand". Hümbs has been known in the scene at the latest since he created his aroma menus, which bring the salty into the sweet. But Hümbs is not only something for the exclusive circle of star cuisine lovers, he is also suitable for the masses. He has been demonstrating this for years on television as a judge on "Das große Backen". And that's why we also put top model and amateur baker Franziska Knuppe at his side. Who could be a better match for the professional pâtissier than "Das große Backen" winner Franziska Knuppe? Look forward to the joint Meisterklasse "The art of pâtisserie". It will be creative, unusual and insanely delicious.
