Toni Mörwald, born in 1967, having grown up in sunny Feuersbrunn am Wagram as the son of the farmers and winegrowers Anton & Erika Mörwald, Toni was steeped in nature and in the production of wine, food and fine cuisine from an early age, and it was there he experienced the cycles of the landscape & region. He learned from numerous grand chefs around the world. At the age of 22 he was awarded his first Gault Millau toque and from then he expanded his activity to other restaurants, a catering business, two hotels and a culinary school while dedicating himself to the training of more than 300 professional chefs. These cooks are now working around the world, where they hold the top jobs in some of the finest restaurants.

Toni Mörwald was nominated Cook of the Year in 2004, entered the list of the Relais & Châteaux Grand Chefs in 2006 and was named “Euro Toques Master Chef” in 2008. He teaches cooking and gives advice on cooking on Austrian radio and TV. Over the course of the years the MÖRWALD GROUP has become increasingly involved in exciting hotel & restaurant projects and has continued to open its own restaurants.
