Summit of celebrity chefs
Gault & Millau bring 100 award-winning chefs and 50 winemakers from across Austria to Vienna for the Genuss-Messe 2016 on 17 and 18 September. At the Kursalon Wien, visitors can sample everything from award-winning pub food to stunning avant-garde creations. All the big names will be there, from Heinz Reitbauer from the Steirereck in Vienna to Konstantin Filippou and Silvio Nickol (both also from Vienna) through to the Obauer brothers from Werfen and Simon Taxacher from the Tyrol. For visitors, it’s a unique opportunity to experience such a line-up of leading chefs in a single place.
The right accompaniment to the culinary highlights comes from the 50 winemakers who will be presenting their wines at the Gault & Millau Genuss-Messe. Among them: Domäne Wachau, Weingut Bründlmayer, Fritz Wieninger and Weingut Jurtschitsch. Beer, schnapps and fruit juice producers also present their award-winning drinks.
In addition to the sampling, there’s also the chance to watch selected leading chefs at work in the show kitchen. For example, Simon Taxacher will be showing how he prepares Kaspressknödel (fried cheese dumplings), while Rudolf Obauer presents one of his trout recipes.
