Michelin has released its fiftieth edition of the Michelin Guide Germany listing 3,359 hotels and 2,303 restaurants. the-table-hamburg-inside_t resizedIn this edition, the restaurant The Table Kevin Fehling, which has just opened in HafenCity, Hamburg, was awarded three stars by Michelin guide inspectors. This is the new restaurant of 38 year old chef Kevin Fehling who had already been awarded three stars in 2013 for his previous restaurant, Belle Epoque, which he closed a few months ago. Michael Ellis, International Director of Michelin Guides, said: "Kevin Fehling masters his art today! In his new, impressively decorated establishment, Kevin transports us to a world where every dish is a moment of excitement. His cuisine demonstrates his total mastery of technique and exceptional maturity which is the prerogative of all top chefs". In all, there is a record 290 starred restaurants in the  Michelin Guide 2016 for Germany, which is approximately 30% more than in the 2010 Guide, demonstrating the rapid growth of haute cuisine in Germany. Michael said: "German cuisine is distinguished by its unprecedented dynamism and is now among the best in the world. In particular, a generation of young, highly motivated and innovative chefs with sound training are bringing a breath of fresh air to the profession. Effectively, among the 26 new restaurants that were awarded a star this year, many belong to a chef under the age of 30".
