He’s got the leather jacket, the matching sunglasses and helmet, hair streaming out behind him as he rides along, the rays of sunlight filtering through the golden leaves on the trees… This sounds like a total cliché, but for Fabian Fuchs it’s the perfect autumn day out on his motorbike. He comes across as calm, relaxed and completely at one with himself, but although he looks like he’s been riding for years, it’s actually an old hobby that the young top chef has newly rediscovered.
Just over a year ago, he and his brother were given their dad’s old motorbike. As well as rekindling childhood memories, the gift inspired the brothers to take on a more ambitious goal together. The young top chef, who has just become a father himself, has fond memories of when his dad was still biking with a passion and they used to spend their time tinkering with their respective steeds. It’s this passion which the Fuchs brothers rediscovered and which made them decide to get their motorbike licences together.
Fabian Fuchs has his own motorbike now, a Triumph. And he looks the part completely – biking isn’t simply his latest trendy hobby, it’s more something that rounds off his lifestyle perfectly. It probably does sound like a total cliché, but when Fuchs takes off his helmet and shakes his hair out, it looks like he’s been biking all his life.
The ambitious Zurich native doesn’t really have time to do much else. Day in, day out, you’ll find him in the kitchen at his restaurant, indulging his guests with fresh, modern, yet down-to-earth creations. These reflect his own personality: trend-conscious, passionate and in touch with nature. These characteristics can be seen both in the way he cooks and the way he pursues his hobby. Whatever he does, Fuchs puts his heart and soul into it.
