Born in northern Germany, Roock found himself in Ticino for the first time at the age of 21 and fell in love with it. Following a variety of work experience around the world, from Doha to Shanghai, he returned to southern Switzerland, becoming Executive Chef at the 5-star Castello del Sole hotel in Ascona in 2016. Since then he and his team have been delighting palates and promoting sustainability in the kitchen.
