Clemens Wilmenrod: Germany's first TV chef
Clemens Wilmenrod (1906-1967), Germany's first TV chef, can also truly be called a pioneer. From 1953 onwards, the trained actor invented rather special recipes. In his view, no rules should block a cook's inspiration. Wilmenrod became known as the inventor of "Toast Hawaii," a toast with ham and grilled cheese topped with a maraschino cherry in the middle of a slice of pineapple.
