The only Swiss chef found in the top 20 is the young Andreas Caminada, who had earned his three stars by the time he was 33.

Deep within a medieval castle, in the extremely small town of Furstenau, Carminada took over the kitchen of Schauenstein Schloss at age 26. It was a far cry from his previous establishments in Zurich and across Germany. Yet, he put this tiny village and castle on the culinary map. The restaurant has been one of the world’s 50 best since 2015.

Caminada opened additional casual restaurants at the Grand Resort in Bad Ragaz and Badrutt’s Palace Hotel in Saint Mortiz. Despite being “casual,” Michelin awarded them both with a star. (That gives him five Michelin stars in total.)
