Marcel Biro was born in the former East Germany in 1973. By 21, Marcel was a European certified chef instructor, teaching aspiring chefs by day and cooking in Michelin-starred restaurants by night. At 24, he became one of the youngest chefs in European history to attain the title Master Chef de Cuisine. Acclaimed for winning several coveted European awards and for his dedication to demystifying classic cuisine, Marcel worked in France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Hungary, Italy, and Lichtenstein before coming to the US in 1999. He has cooked at several internationally acclaimed restaurants including Emile Jung's three-star Michelin Au Crocodile, toured Europe with Olympia Master Chef Francois Geiger, and was personal chef to German Chancellor Helmut Kohl. Shannon Kring Biro, the co-star of The Kitchens of Biro, is an award-winning lifestyle and cuisine writer who has been featured in Gastronomica and many other publications.
