German and Austrian cuisine are underestimated

KOCH.CAMPUS in the Gannerhof.

At the beginning there was the sad realization that Austria's contemporary culinary quality is almost unknown outside the German-speaking area and is absolutely underestimated. Unfortunately, Austria's cuisine is reduced to clichés such as Wiener Schnitzel, fried chicken and apple strudel.

A campus has always been a symbol of openness, cooperation and the transfer of knowledge and skills. The Koch.Campus sees itself as an initiative that further develops the concept of “Austrian cuisine” through the joint work of chefs and high-quality producers.

At the international level, the Koch.Campus aims to position Austria as one of the top destinations worldwide with both independent and excellent gastronomy culture and cuisine.

New definition of the "alpine winter kitchen" in the Gannerhof.
