"Sauce god" Jens Rittmeyer has committed himself entirely to the Nordic cuisine. With Olav, he succeeds in the loving and detailed preparation of his artful dishes.
On his way of becoming a professional chef, Jens first learned in various restaurants in Baden-Baden. Afterwards, he worked in Michelin-starred restaurants such as the Victorian and the Schlosshotel Lerbach in the Rhineland. Finally, he spent seven years in Portugal. This sunny time was very formative for him, as he realised, among other things, the value of using fresh seasonal ingredients.
Eventually, Jens decided to open his own restaurant. Today he runs the cosmopolitan Restaurant N° 4 in Buxtehude. The sea's closeness reflects Jens' preference for processing fresh fish and shellfish. Jens sees his culinary basis in the connection to Nordic cuisine.
With a lot of finesse and attention to detail, Jens cooks for his international guests at N°4. His unique creations open up unimagined taste horizons. Jens' sauces have become so popular that he recently started offering them for shipment in his own online shop. The products are of course made without flavour enhancers and from 100% natural ingredients. Sauce specialities such as balsamic jus, lemon thyme sauce, mushroom stock, fish stock or carrot anise sauce can be purchased online and ordered directly to your home.
Like any star chef, Jens knows that successful food is not only about good ingredients and a clever recipe. Only with high-quality cookware can the dishes be prepared with precision and sensitivity.
