A touch of vitality
waldhotel colour cuisine
Waldhotel Color Cuisine is a new way to tailor nutrition to you and your individual needs. Following extensive researches and on the basis of various measurements, your nutritional profile will be determined and derived from this a personal nutritional recommendation. The diet can also be supplemented with specially enriched micronutrients.
The idea of dividing the foods into their colors is based on the good complement of the ingredients, especially the phytochemicals. Identical or similar colored foods often have comparable active ingredients, and so, with diets in certain colors on different days, the input of positive substances in certain colors can be maximized and, at the same time, it is easier for the body to absorb them.
Thus, each day is under a certain color motto which runs through from breakfast to dinner and also includes things such as flowers and teas. Now an insight into the world of colors in food and its key ingredients.
My name is Martin Stein. I am the kitchen manager of the Waldhotel Health and Medical Execution on Bürgenstock Resort. I started my career as a cook in my hometown Vienna. Through various stations in renowned restaurants in the city in which I was several times involved in reaching Michelin awards. Could I quickly, in the circle of the Viennese gourmet restaurants, rose to a coveted chef and was praised by the press enthusiastically.
Only a few years later, together with my wife, I opened our own restaurant "Martin Stein" in Vienna. After only two years we were already number 4 among Vienna's fine dining restaurants. As a genuine nature lover we pursue our balanced living style few years later and sold the restaurant to escape to the countryside. There, as head chef at VIVAMAYR Altaussee, I had the great pleasure of merging the modern Mayr cuisine with my experience of star gastronomy.
The best of both worlds can now be found in the Waldhotel Colour Cuisine designed by me. Waldhotel offers me the unique opportunity to pamper guests from all over the world with a healthy gourmet kitchen. Because enjoyment and added value for our body need not be excluded is my doctrine.
