Chef Marcus Tusch of the International School of Hamburg

Mr. Tusch is a family man, who believes that children should not only eat healthily but also understand what they consume and the nutritional values that come with it. He loves to travel but is mostly passionate about cooking. He loves to cook for family and friends because as he puts it, "Liebe geht durch den Magen." The way to a man's heart is through his stomach. His favourite cuisine is Asian because it is healthy, diverse and there is always something new to try out in it.

Mr. Tusch creates the weekly menu which can be found on our parent portal and parents are always welcome to stick around, enjoy a caffe latte and chat with their peers. 

Together with Junior School Principal, Dr. Weishof, he is always at hand talking with the students about their food options when they come into the cafeteria. 

Students use a cashless payment system for convenience and fast service as well as for monitoring transactions. The ISH Cafeteria features close to 300 seats and was recently equipped with new furniture in 2017.
