Who would have thought that, a top chef who likes fast food. Kitchen wizard Johann Lafer (62) now admitted that he grew up in Berlin almost only nourished by burgers and Co.
“My mother gave me 500 shillings, or 80 DM, at the time. I was the best customer at Burger King at the Kurfürstendamm“he said on the program” Brisant “.
This time was also very good for him, as he emphasizes. She had brought him up to be grateful and he knew that on the way up you always had to be ready to jump over a few hurdles.
But his career also took a toll, because “after more than 45 years as a high-performance chef with 14 to 16 hours on his feet seven days a week, the body sends warning signals at some point, which I ignored for a long time.” He even had to be operated on because of “arthrosis in the left knee”.
Today, however, it is absolutely painless and no longer needs tablets. “I have a lot more fun with my work, I have become more spontaneous and enjoy my freedom of movement, I can go hiking and cycling again. And yes, I also try new things.”
