Dorin Schuster has returned to the kitchens of The Legian, Bali for a third tour of duty. Schuster’s first assignment with the resort was as Executive Chef in the early 2000s.
Dorins first entered the kitchen as an apprentice at the age of 18 in a small family-run hotel in South Germany. Experience and scholarship led to eventual certification as a “Master Chef” by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Augsburg.
Credentials in hand, he then spent several years working in his native Germany, earning his stripes and a culinary reputation while working at establishments such as Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Munich, Landhotel Illereichen and the legendary Adlon Hotel in Berlin.
Asia beckoned and Chef Schuster set out for Bali working for 3 years as the Executive Chef at The Legian and 2 years at the Financial Club in Jakarta before opening Iggy’s in Singapore 2004.
Chef Dorin has worked together with an impressive list of legendary Chefs such as Eckard Witzigmann, Tetsuya Wakuda, Luke Mangan, Eberhard Aspacher, Peter Dörner and Karlheinz Hauser. He has cooked for then-U.S. President George Bush, German President Roman Herzog, Steven Spielberg and Michael Jackson.
Now back for a third engagement, Schuster worked previously at The Legian Bali in 2008, departed the island briefly and is now back again as Executive Chef at one of the Island’s most renowned dining rooms.
When asked about his culinary philosophy, Schuster's answer is simple: Good ingredients, simple preparation and precise execution.
