Those who set off to join us in the Bregenzerwald will spend about half an hour driving past green meadows, cow pastures, and farms. A sustainable and responsible way of life has always characterized our region. This extends over all areas of life – from nutrition to living. That’s why in our new kitchen concept we are uncompromisingly rejecting far-traveled and nonseasonal ingredients, as well as the throwaway culture.
Holistic. A personal relationship with suppliers, a careful procurement process, and the art of holistic use of all ingredients characterize our hotel’s cuisine. In our new 4,000 m2 hotel garden, two young gardeners take care of our vegetables and kitchen herbs. They deliver the harvest directly to the kitchen. In addition, head chef Nico Hirschfeld knows our meat farmers personally and how they have fed and raised their cattle and pigs. When preparing meat dishes, he strictly follows the “nose-to-tail” approach and finds a use for all edible parts of the animal. In order to secure the supply of regional fruit and vegetables, in the new kitchen concept, we also rely on “iwecka” – the Bregenzerwald term for cooking and fermenting. This means that we have seasonal delicacies “in stock” for you all year round.
Enjoyment. We have consciously decided that every Hotel Post by Susanne Kaufmann retreat will be supervised by one of our nutrition experts. In this way, we help to ensure a long-term change in eating and nutrition habits that lasts far beyond your stay with us. In our food labs, we have experts on hand to provide nutritional input and tips on how to prepare food. Here, healthy food and enjoyment are not mutually exclusive. Depending on the retreat, our guests have the choice between:
Our Gourmet menus are accompanied by a large selection of teas, freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices, and our own spring water. If it suits the retreat, we are happy to present a selection of national wines from our wine cellar.
We are convinced that food holds the body and soul together. Convince yourself and book your stay now.
