The best cooking class in Tirol

Last updated 20.12.2016EckardEckard

Restaurant Schwedenkapelle (in Kitzbühel) runs truly remarkable cookery classes – the best I’ve experienced. Winkler brothers Christian and Markus – also known for their Michelin star restaurant, Schindlhaus in the village of Söll – are the owners of this traditional inn. Their three-hour cookery class focuses on refined, traditional cuisine, with an emphasis on seasonal and regional ingredients. Although the recipes are fairly sophisticated, they’re easy enough to recreate at home. And these cookery classes are not only an opportunity to learn some fantastic Tirol recipes, but they also share expert tips, practiced by the pros. Guided and entertained by chefs who seemed genuinely interested in our cookery education, my afternoon in the kitchen flew by in a flash and, afterwards, the other cookery students and I tucked into our creations with great pride. The Winklers are not only excellent chefs, they also understand just what it takes to create really enjoyable and successful cookery events, like this. Perfect hosts, their relaxed and attentive attitude is reflected in the welcoming ambience of their restaurant. I’d highly recommended their cookery school to anyone – classes are held once a month (priced at €80/person), with menus available on the website.
