Q & A with Chef Bernhard Pfeffel
from Hotel Kristall, Weidach, Austria
Q. What Makes your food so popular among our guests?
A. They love our daily 5-course themed dinner menus. We offer dishes which include local venison, prepared to old farmer recipes, or we spoil our guests with Italian specialities, prepared in Tyrolean style.
Q. Do you focus on using local produce to give an authentic taste?
A. Our organic farm in Leutasch provides us with organic veal and beef, we use potatoes and vegetables from a farmer in Roppen and cheese from Kitzbühel Alps. Seasonal herbs are grown in our own garden.
Q. I understand the hotel owns its own vineyard?
A. My uncle has a vineyard in the Wachau in Lower Austria and we offer his most famous wines in our hotel. We also make marmalade out of the Wachau apricots and Leutasch strawberries.
"The family-run hotel is oozing Austrian hospitality and charm
but the main memory it leaves is the food"
