Christian Golles, like many youngsters in Austria, started first in the kitchen of a restaurant, then a culinary school after basic education, and finally, a one-year apprenticeship in several restaurants. He rose through the kitchen ranks under the mentorship of various Great Chefs.
In 1995, Chef Golles was offered the position of sous chef at the Palais Schwarzenberg in Vienna, Austria, under Great Chef Christian Petz. In 1997, the Great Chefs television team taped him at the Palais for Austria’s ORF-TV’s Great Chefs of Austria series, and the Discovery
Channel’s Great Chefs of the World Series (episodes 213 and 259).
