Roland Trettl

Star chef at ski & culinary delight in Wagrain-Kleinarl

Roland Trettl is a top chef and at least since his role as chef at Restaurant Ikarus every gourmet has known him. Roland Trettl's Restaurant Ikarus was honoured both in the Falstaff Restaurant Guide and by Gault Millau Austria.

He was also awarded a Michelin star in 2004. In addition to his work as a chef, he is also a popular TV chef. Roland Trettl is a TV expert on the Sat 1 cooking casting show "The Taste", the VOX shows "Kitchen impossible" and "Grill den Profi/Henssler".

He also delivers himself behind the stove again and again cooking duels of the extra class. Since 2018 he has been leading through the VOX format "First Dates - Ein Tisch für 2". And with "First Dates" he even reaches prime time. Together with Michael Mittermeier he creates "True Story", a mix of fiction, comedy and authentic stories.

In September 2019 he publishes his new book "Nachschlag: Der Koch, der erst ohne Sterne und Hauben das wahre Glück fand" ("Lookup: The cook who found true happiness without stars and hoods").

Rudi Pichler 

One of the stars of ski & culinary delight in Wagrain-Kleinarl

Rudi Pichler comes from Kleinarl and is a local chef. He learned his trade from top chef Franz Aichhorn and worked with renowned chefs such as Schellhorn and Obauer. He has improved his skills in various restaurants. On a culinary voyage of discovery in South Africa, Rudi rediscovered baking bread and the passion for bread is greater today than ever before. In May 2018 the joint film work with Simon Tasek premiered in the local cinemas. In the movie "Lehrling der Zeit" (Apprentice of Time) he takes a mental journey back in time to the post-war period and learns a new understanding of the value of local food and the appreciation of food regains more importance for him. He reworks the existing products with today's possibilities. Thus, long forgotten culinary arts find their way into modern cuisine - traditional roots are combined with modern culinary art. The focus is on regionality.

Bio aus dem Tal

The producers of many ingredients for ski & culinary delight in Wagrain-Kleinarl

Organic food from the valley: The three "pioneers" are farmers with a passion and enjoy working together as a family. Under the "Bio aus dem Tal" brand, they produce dairy products and the various types of cheese in their milk workshop in Kleinarl. They love life with nature and animals. They are particularly proud of the fact that they can work on their own farms and also have jobs to offer in the region. They attach great importance to sustainability and regionality. Of course, everything is made out from organic and regional products - you can taste the difference.

With "Bio aus dem Tal" they have laid the foundation stone for their dream - but they are working hard to bring their vision to as many people as possible and to create more awareness again. And they have succeeded. From now on the Wagrainer Hühnerdorf and the farm Großwidmoos produce organic products from the valley. The Steinbauer bakery is also on board.

Every course of the gala-menu is dedicated to another producer of Bio aus dem Tal.
