About us

The company Kochen & Kunst was founded by Alex & Angkana Neumayer in 2004 to offer further education in the area of culinary art (edible art) as well as various Asian cuisines. Kochen & Kunst quickly established itself in this market, and the demand for courses and workshops came from different countries of Europe.

In 2006, the Kochen & Kunst Shop,  founded as a specialist shop, offered our customers high-quality, interesting appliances for kitchen, art & culinary artistry.
