The Kitchen Party Concept

The Kitchen Party is a unique offering which showcases the cuisine from the Waldhaus hotel’s restaurants as well as a guest hotel or restaurant. The evening we attended the crew from the Dolder Grand were there and the chefs from the two hotels worked together to tempt our palates with the most amazing array of delicious treats.

The Food

It was an opportunity to meet with the chefs in their own environment, ask them questions, find out about the ingredients and to even get involved with helping prepare some of the dishes if we wished.

It was so much fun to be backstage in the restaurant and not only could we see the dishes being prepared but we could taste whichever dishes we fancied. We were even able to glean a few tips on cooking for back home. We dined in the kitchen itself and also in the beautiful glass walled Epoca restaurant, which overlooks the hotel’s beautiful parkland. The Epoca restaurant has been awarded 14 Gaul Millau points and the cuisine is outstanding.

To round it all off there was an Elderflower panna cotta with mint granita and champagne.

All the dishes not only looked wonderful but tasted delicious. It was impossible to try everything, but it was great experience to see the dishes being made and decorated so precisely. There were also delicious snacks as well as cheese boards consisting of some sensational cheeses and local cured meats.
