The son of renowned French Chef Paul Haeberlin, Marc Haeberlin had big shoes to fill. His father’s Auberge de I’lll received the coveted Michelin three stars in 1967 — and kept them — making it one of France’s oldest three-star restaurants. 

Not only did Paul train chefs, such as Jean-George Vongerichten, he also taught his son and daughter, Daniele, how to cook. In 1976, Marc took over for his father as the restaurant’s head chef and continued to introduce the world to new recipes that, yes, win awards but also draw crowds to the Alsace region.
