    Food & Drink: Land of Gentle Refinement

    Austria owes its culinary identity to both its location in the heart of Europe, nestled between the Danube and the Alps, and its remarkable history. Austria stands for openness to varied influences and a love for refining existing traditions at the highest level.

    When it comes to food, we want to enjoy our meals with a good conscience – with regard to our bodies, the environment, and the animals. But what distinguishes “good” food? 

    In Austria, farmers, producers, and chefs often place their emphasis on tradition and the knowledge of their forebears. At the same time, they are open to new influences; they travel all over the world in search of inspiration and return full of ideas. These people have one common vision: traditional recipes prepared with high-quality, sustainable ingredients refined through innovative approaches. The recipe for success already begins with the cultivation of old varieties of fruits and vegetables, or with the raising of long-forgotten animal breeds. The combination of knowledge, pioneering spirit, and mindfulness results in creative dishes, uncontrived and genuine. 

    Here, we place the spotlight on these “artists of gentle refinement”. They give things time to ripen and grow, treat nature with respect and care for the environment – always with future generations in mind.
