Making something yourself is probably one of the greatest human aspirations.
Pasta, pastries, marinated fish, roast beef for breakfast, jams, chutneys, doughs, pickled vegetables, fruit ragouts, mustard, sauces, lemonades, fruit juices, pastries, sausage... the list of our home-made specialities goes on. We often buy large cuts of the animals (or the whole thing) and work on them ourselves. We believe that these skills form the basis of good cooking.
We're not the only ones that like to get stuck in, our suppliers do too. You have to look long and hard for products such as our Weideschwein ham (and reach a little deeper into your pocket), but it smells absolutely wonderful and its flavour is well worth the effort.
The professionals who build our facilities and furniture are also craftsmen, but in the literal sense. It's impossible to be run-of-the-mill here, as the building is too irregular, too idiosyncratic. Every piece of wood, every stone, every fabric in the building has been worked with loving attention to detail and put together to the highest standard to ensure the comfort that you rightly expect from us.
Good food is supposed be simple, but not simple to produce. The finest quality products and precise craftsmanship are indispensable. Everything we know is poured into our dishes. And we're more than happy to pass this knowledge on to our apprentices; it's a valuable part of our culture.
