Parvin Razavi

Born in Iran, Parvin Razavi moved to Austria with her parents at the age of eight. She discovered her passion for cooking at an early age. She spent a lot of time in her mother’s kitchen, where she learned to know and love traditional Persian cuisine.

Since 2021, Parvin has been the head chef at &flora, where she has developed her own distinctive culinary style. Refined, open-minded and feminine – this is Parvin’s signature, not only when it comes to her dishes. The fact that her team consists mostly of women can be interpreted as a clear statement in the hospitality scene.

& Parvin loves oriental spices.

Creative Head Chef Parvin Razavi likes to pass on her love for cooking and enticing flavors through the meals she creates. Besides being served exciting dishes, our guests also receive a portion of positive energy.

Combined with Austrian, international and oriental influences, this fantastic culinary world tour also reflects Parvin’s personal past and present. It stays personal when we talk about “homemade” – because at &flora that really means “handmade”. Our fun-loving and open-minded philosophy only knows one exception: Strict care is taken to make sure as many ingredients as possible are regional and ethically sound.
