Straight from the garden
Our secret? Hans' flair for plants
Of course, we could place an order every day and have the ingredients delivered to us. But we want to offer our guests the food that we ourselves love most. Fresh, regional, healthy and made by hand. Many of the ingredients used in our kitchen come from our vegetable garden at the Lechnerhof. It is Hans's realm. Here he proves day after day that he has a knack for plants. When the last snow is gone, the first herbs break through the earth and it turns green. Then come spinach and radishes and delicious salads.In summer in fact we only get our salad from the Lechnerhof. But what would be the best ingredients if you didn't make anything out of them? Chef Marco Perez and his team not only process our fruit and vegetables, but also bake bread and cakes, knead pasta dough and prepare vinegar. The interaction between the garden and the kitchen works so well because Hans is in constant contact with the kitchen team. "I tell what is growing and they tell me what they will need next." A functioning cycle can be that simple.
By the way: Hans shows our guests the vegetable garden once a week in summer. Bet that it will taste even better in the evening?
