Karla: Generally, the food was amazing, we had a lot of Speck
which is a cured pork product very similar to prosciutto, and a typical meat in Austria. This was accompanied by lots of cheeses. The food was hearty mountain fare but prepared in a refined way – it was lovely and we certainly never went hungry!
Gillian: We only snatched a glance of Maria Alberta (the main chef at Aldein) as we were passing through the kitchen on the evening of our arrival, so we didn’t have a formal introduction. However, we did sense her indisputable presence as we dined and as the evening progressed. Competence, experience, knowledge of food, respect for ingredients, customers and the business are all evident at Gasthof Krone
and have inevitably filtered through from Maria in this family-run hotel which is a favourite locale for gourmets and offers natural regional cuisine with fresh produce from the home farm.
