Chef Attila Körmöczi at InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah

NOW! PEOPLE | 26 August 2022

Ever since its opening in late 2018, InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah has become an icon of luxurious hospitality experiences in Jakarta. From its well-appointed rooms to its elegant dining and wedding experiences, the hotel is contributing significantly to South Jakarta’s wealth of cosmopolitan ways of life.

The hotel appointed Chef Attila Körmöczi in June 2021 as the culinary leader to bring his undeniable wealth of experience in the global culinary world and sprinkle some world-class magic to its already impressive line-up of dining experiences.

Hailing from Wiesbaden, Germany, Chef Attila grew up in a household of kitchen wizards. “My family has a lot of members who are experts in the culinary world,” recalled the chef who cooked his first tagliatelle with duck breast in orange sauce long before his teenage years.

His prodigious talent earned Chef Attila his first apprenticeship in a five-star luxury hotel in his hometown in Wiesbaden, at the age of eighteen. He later honed his skills working alongside Michelin-star chefs Gerd M. Eis and Alfred Friedrich as well as in 1-Micheline star restaurants: Humperdinck in Frankfurt and Marcobrunn in Etville, Germany.

After mastering his proficiency in modern European cuisine, Chef Attila took on a new challenge in a different continent altogether and started his love affair with Asia and its many culinary wonders. Over the course of thirteen years in Asia, he has had stints in some of the continent’s best five-star hotels in Bali as well as in China.
