Head chef at Lech hotel receives Austria’s most prestigious gourmet award

Five-star hotel Severin’s Alpine Retreat in Lech Am Arlberg Austria will be top of the list for ‘foodies’ this winter after the head Chef, Stephan Kriegelstein was awarded the Gault&Millau award in October this year.

The Gault&Millau award is the most prestigious gourmet award in Austria, rewarding culinary professionals for their creativity within the industry. Kriegelstein’s own imagination is abundantly evident and his clear tomato soup, Wagyu beef tartare and goose liver pâté pinwheels had the critics reeling.

This award should not really come as much of a surprise however. Before joining the team at Severin’s, Kriegelstein and his team at the Omnia Mountain Lodge in Zermatt were awarded a Michelin star. Since this achievement, the talented chef has also won the Fallstaff award for best newcomer in Austria and he can now add the Gault&Millau award to his trophy cabinet.

Rooms at Severin’s start at €690 a night which includes the use of all hotel facilities and meals cooked by Kriegelstein himself. The restaurant is not exclusive to hotel residents and is open to all fine dining enthusiasts. It will be serving food from 7pm Monday to Saturday from the 9 December 2017.
