Vegetables from different altitudes

There is good 1,000 metres of difference in elevation between Lustenau on Lake Constance and Lech in Arlberg. Restaurateur & hotelier Josef Walch (Rote Wand, Lech) and organic farmer Simon Vetter (Vetterhof, Lustenau) both cultivate vegetables of the highest quality at their respective locations. They ponder how taste is changed by those 1,000 metres of altitude. A fascinating Koch.Campus workshop spanning the lakeshore and mountain peaks.

About Koch.Campus

The Koch.Campus association brings together more than 30 world-class chefs and roughly the same number of pioneering agricultural and commercial producers, hoteliers and food experts from around Austria. This task force for good taste, currently boasting 58 members, is led by Hans Reisetbauer and Andreas Döllerer. The association promotes greater exchange of knowledge and experience between chefs and producers and joint exploration and development of regional primary products. Secondary goals include encouraging contemporary interpretations of Austrian cuisine and better positioning of domestic Austrian primary products to compete on international markets. Through expert workshops, tastings, lectures, excursions and discussions, members of Koch.Campus enter into dialogue with domestic primary product producers and evaluate their quality potential based on various types and breeds, cultivation and captivity models, age and maturation levels and preparation methods.
