Munich. Eckart Witzigmann, who will celebrate his 75th birthday this year, has named the jury for the ECKART 2016. Jury members for the 2016 award include:

  • Alex Atala, ECKART 2013 winner, São Paulo
  • Fritz Eichbauer, entrepreneur, founder and owner of Tantris Restaurant, Munich
  • Dr. Friedrich Eichiner, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Finance, Munich
  • Otto Geisel, Witzigmann Academy, initiator of the award, Munich
  • Claus Meyer, ECKART 2015 winner, Copenhagen and New York City
  • Jon Rose, ECKART 2014 winner, Los Angeles
  • Tohru Nakamura, ECKART 2011 winner and Chef of the Year 2015, Munich

 

The jury will meet at several locations this year. For the ECKART for “Creative Responsibility and Enjoyment”, endowed by the BMW Group with 10,000 euros, the Witzigmann Academy will rely on the prowess and expertise of previous award winners Atala, Rose and Meyer. Their vote will be linked with the jury members’ meeting on 28 June 2016 in Munich to decide the winners of the “Art of Cookery”, “Innovation” and “Culture of Living” awards.

 

New venue for awards ceremony and gala
This year, for the first time, the awards ceremony and subsequent gala dinner will be held at the new BMW Group Classic in Munich. “This is where BMW started out,” says Gabriele Fink, head of the BMW Museum. “A worthy setting for Eckart Witzigmann’s 75th birthday and the BMW centenary – it promises to be a very special evening.” The awards ceremony and gala will take place on 18 October 2016.

 

ECKART, Witzigmann Academy and the BMW Group
The International Eckart Witzigmann Award is one of the most prestigious honours recognising outstanding achievements in the art of cooking and fine dining. “Chef of the century” Eckart Witzigmann has awarded the ECKART for unique culinary achievements and special commitment under the broad spectrum of lifestyle since 2004. In partnership with the BMW Group, the Witzigmann Academy presents awards annually in three categories: “Art of Cookery”, “Innovation” and “Art of Living”. The Academy presented its first ECKART for “Creative Responsibility and Enjoyment” in 2013, with a cash award of 10,000 euros endowed by the BMW Group.

Previous ECKART winners include Daniel Boulud (New York City); HRH Charles, Prince of Wales (Highgrove); Elena Arzak (San Sebastian); Anne-Sophie Pic (Valence); Harald Wohlfahrt (Tonbach); Dieter Kosslick (Berlin); Ferran Adrià (Barcelona); Marc Haeberlin (Illhaeusern); Joël Robuchon (Paris); Joël Robuchon (Paris); Alex Atala (Sao Paulo); Jon Rose (Los Angeles); Mick Hucknall (Manchester); and many more.

A symposium on a specific gastronomic topic is also held annually.

Sustainability has been an integral part of the BMW Group’s corporate strategy for many years, with sustainable development firmly established as a corporate target at Group level: from the development of alternative, fuel-saving vehicle concepts through environmentally-compatible production processes to eco-friendly recycling methods. At the BMW Group, sustainable thinking and action influences not only the product, but the entire value chain. In all areas of the company, the focus is on meaningful and responsible use of energy and raw materials.
