From a very early age, I realised the joy and satisfaction of growing and harvesting, food preparation and sharing a table with family and friends. My Latvian background was definitely one of the reasons as well as living in Australia where our multicultural society has introduced us to a never ending symphony of exotic international flavours and cooking techniques. With Australia being so vast in size and climates, we have access to a huge array of produce. After living in Europe for a few years and returning home to Australia, I came to appreciate even more the importance of using this amazing produce and decided to start up cooking classes to share the love and to shake up any complacency out there. It worked and 13 years later, I have built my business to a point where I have a large data base of people who come to watch me cook, or to cook with me, to accompany me on local foodie day tours around Sydney and to travel with me to international culinary regions such as Morocco, Piemonte and Provence. New Zealand and Latvia are on the cards for 2016. It's all so exciting!

Heinrich Zehetner studierte Wirtschaftswissenschaften und ist im Hauptberuf als selbständiger Managementberater tätig. Seine große Leidenschaft ist die Kulinarik und die Weinkultur. Seit 1987 beschäftigt er sich mit hochwertigen Olivenölen und hat dazu ein erhebliches Fachwissen aufgebaut. Unzählige Reisen führten ihn zu Olivenölproduzenten nach Italien, Spanien, Kroatien und andere Länder, wo er als Olivenölverkoster und Tester große Erfahrung sammelte. Er hat in Italien eine staatliche Prüfung zum Olivenölverkoster- und Tester nach den Vorschriften der Europäischen Union und des Internationalen Olivenöl-Council abgelegt.
Aus der Leidenschaft wurde ein Zweitberuf. Seit 2002 ist er für das einzigartige Projekt für eine neue Olivenölkultur „Olio Secondo Veronelli“ in Österreich und Deutschland zuständig, welches von Luigi Veronelli, dem großen Kulinarik-Philosophen und Doyen der italienischen Wein- und Gastronomiepublizistik ins Leben gerufen wurde.
Er ist der Erfinder von speziellen Olivenöl-Workshops und Menüs, bei denen reinsortige Olivenöle mit verschiedenen Speisen verkostet werden, indem das Olivenöl wie ein Gewürz auf die fertige Speise gegeben wird. Er ist Freund und Berater von Sterne- und Haubenköchen; seine Vorträge und Workshops „Olivenöl & Kulinarik finden bei den Köchen, Servicemitarbeiten und privaten Interessenten großen Anklang. Außerdem ist er Vortragender bei der österreichischen Anti-Aging-Akademie und hält Vorträge zum Thema „Olivenöl & gesundheitsfördernde Eigenschaften“ bei Tagungen und Ärztekongressen.
Laufende Einladungen zu Messen und Gourmet-Events als Experte und Vortragender (wie z. B. Gourmet’s Italia in Wien, München, Bratislava, Moskau und St. Petersburg, Expoliva in Jaén/Spanien, Tourismusverband Istrien/Kroatien) zeugen von der großen Fachkompetenz. Eine besondere Auszeichnung sind die Einladungen auf die besten Kreuzfahrtschiffe und einzigen 5-Sterne-Plus-Schiffe der Welt „MS EUROPA“ und die neue „MS EUROPA 2“, um auf Reisen als „Genuss-handwerker“ Olivenölworkshops und Olivenölmenüs für die anspruchsvollen Gäste durchzuführen und mehrere Einladungen zu „EUROPAs Beste“, eine jährliche Veranstaltung mit den besten Köchen, Winzern und Affineuren Europas auf der MS EUROPA.
In den letzten Jahren ist er zusätzlich als internationaler Berater und Verkoster für Olivenöle tätig geworden.
Von der Fachpresse wurde er als „unermüdlicher Enthusiast“, „Olivenölmissionar“, „Veronelli-Botschafter“, „Oleomane“ und „als einer der renommiertesten Olivenöl-experten Europas“ bezeichnet.
Unterstützt wird er in seiner Leidenschaft von seiner Frau Karin, welche Romanistik und Marketing studierte und für das Marketing der Salzburger Festspiele tätig ist. Beide leben in Mondsee bei Salzburg.

Stephan Zuber
Stephan Zuber
Owner Du Bonheur

Stephan Zuber comes from Styria in Austria, where he gained experience in his parents' dining pub. His passion led him to well-known Viennese addresses, such as the parade at the Opera, Meinl am Graben, and the Munich Tantris. In the Atelier de Joel Robuchon at Ducasse and Hélène Darroze in Paris, he refined his skills until he finally settled in Berlin, first as a chef in the restaurant Uma (Hotel Adlon) and now as the operator of the Du Bonheur, where he meets his guests at noon and spoils them with savory creations.

The idea and philosophy of D Bonheur:

Du Bonheur (happiness) - When a Frenchman tastes something special, all his senses are captured in that moment, and he exclaims, "Ah, ca c'est du bonheur!"

Give yourself such moments of happiness - in the enjoyment of a zartblättrigen croissant, a fragrant cup of coffee. Or that crowning moment when your teeth break through the crust of a fine macaron and the chocolate cream begins to melt on your tongue...

All products in Du Bonheur are of hand-picked quality. Many products are made fresh in our bakery every day ​​with care and love. Some come from factory farms that operate according to similar principles, and we are confident in their products.

We are committed to the confectioner craft. Enjoyment is our top priority. The decoration, reduced to essentials, is used to prepare a taste sensation. Clear profiles with a maximum of three taste-giving ingredients serve the intelligibility of creation.

We work exclusively with spelt, as it is grown largely without chemical fertilizers and is protected from harmful environmental influences by its husk. This cereal is easily digestible and suitable even for many people with wheat intolerance. The taste and visual difference from wheat in the finished product is hardly recognizable.
