Chefs Karl & Leo Wrenkh
The Brothers Wrenkh were raised in the first (and up until recently, only) high-quality vegetarian restaurant in Austria. With a family motto, “Eating is Life!” they take cooking very seriously. While Leo attended a classic culinary school, Karl’s cooking background has been more casual. Their styles merge using healthy, quality and locally grown ingredients to create foods with international flair.
These Viennese brothers opened the Wrenkh Vienna Culinary School 2.0 in 2009. Classes include everything from Indian cuisine to forest harvest; team cooking to herb hikes..
Karl and Leo share a lifelong love of good food and a strong desire to provide their guests – in the restaurant and at the culinary school – an unforgettable dining experience.
