Famous Food in Austria

Food in Austria - See here the small winter menu of the Hotel Olympia & Herbs***.

The HOTEL OLYMPIA & HERBS *** appreciates a fresh, regional and homemade cuisine and puts an emphasis on fresh herbs (if possible) from the hotel’s own herbal garden.

Slow Food is committed to protecting traditional and sustainable quality foods, defending the biodiversity of cultivated and wild varieties as well cultivation and processing methods.

Slow Food believes in the concept of neo-gastronomy – recognition of the strong connections between plate, planet, people and culture.

Collectively our consumer choices can bring great change to how food is cultivated and produced. To highlight this, we consider ourselves co-producers - an eater who is informed about where and how their food is produced and actively supports local producers, therefore becoming part of the production process.

Slow Food is about a concept of food quality defined by three interconnected principles:

GOOD a fresh and flavorsome seasonal diet that satisfies the senses and is part of our local culture;
CLEAN food production and consumption that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health;
FAIR accessible prices for consumers and fair conditions and pay for small-scale producers.

This is why we are an active player in a wide variety of areas, from education to agricultural policy. To work across this wide sphere, Slow Food defends biodiversity in our food supply, promotes food and taste education and connects sustainable producers to co-producers through events and building networks.
Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization with supporters in 150 countries around the world who are linking the pleasure of good food with a commitment to their community and the environment.
Today, we have over 100,000 members joined in 1,300 convivia – our local chapters – worldwide, as well as a network of 2,000 food communities who practice small-scale and sustainable production of quality foods.*
