In retrospect, the cross-entry as a basic principle for Sarah Wieners career. She was in her mid-twenties, single parents, social assistance recipient, and without any training, as she began to peel in the Kreuzberg scene Restaurant your father's potatoes. Who would have then bet on it that this kitchen would be the most famous cook in the German-speaking countries? Later, Wiener rose with a converted kitchen of the National people's army in a cart to the Film-Catering. Who would have thought that would develop into a company with almost 90 employees? In this respect, it is to be taken seriously, when the 56-announces year-old Austrian and choice brand citizen now to go into politics.

In the European elections in may, wants to place the non-party TV chef for Austria's Green run, you are applying to the second list, the party Congress will decide in March. Wiener wants to dedicate himself to the issues of sustainable agriculture, healthy food and biodiversity, and the white, "that I have a steep learning curve in front of me," as she told the news agencies.

Vienna self-describes himself as "lazy and angry child", dropped out of school and 16 years kiffend and swiping through Europe and hitchhiked.

Some find that they Images overdo it with the care of your Underdog, if you move out against the inequality in nutritional issues to the field. Others accuse her of verzettele with all of your projects, and you turn the nose on your all-too-down-to-earth cuisine. Criticism of the Vienna with self-irony encountered: could not cook "from everything that I can, at best," she says.

the allegation of Self-PR to counteract, commented on the cross-entry in the policy as a precaution, with the sentence: "This is not a Sarah-Wiener's personality number".
