Food & drink at the GROSSARLER HOF
Salzburg’s gourmet culture and traditions
Salzburg’s boundless gourmet culture is in our DNA. Chef Andreas Gratz and his team have taken to heart the Austrian government’s GenussRegion initiative to promote regional food specialities by creating culinary delights – including vegetarian dishes – for our excellent Jagastub’n à la carte and elegant Alpine-style restaurants.
‘Good food is the foundation of genuine happiness.’
George Auguste Escoffier
for exquisite dishes
Andreas Gratz’ compositions are accompanied by oenophile offerings from the host country Austria, but our extensive wine list also features wines from all around the world.
During our weekly wine tastings, you can expect to sample first class wines from established growers as well as up-and-coming young winemakers.
Gourmets have long regarded the Pongau region as a centre of culinary excellence, especially with regard to game and venison. The Austrian GenussRegion scheme has even officially recognised it as a region of special culinary interest.
In 2014, special gourmet status was also awarded to the five small cheeseries in the Grossarl Valley that produce a wide range of farmhouse cheeses, from curd cheese and hard cheeses to the famous ‘sour cheese’.
