Chris Engel

Executive Chef
Aureole New York

My Hometown: Weilrod Oberlauken, a small village close to Frankfurt.

Genuine American Hospitality Means: Creating special moments so every single person feels entirely comfortable and happy. 

Favorite Off-Duty Spot: A fishing boat called: Lauralee. It sails off the coast of Long Island, NY. Fishing is my all time favorite hobby and gives me sanity.  A close second is my couch at home, especially during the cold season. I enjoy the peace and quiet time at home on my sofa watching a great movie or soccer!

Aureole Is: My home base and a huge part of my life, so I try to make it as good as it can be. 

How I Pair It: Liverwurst, Pickles, Mustard, Pretzel Rolls and BEER
