Bauernherbst Season means a celebration of New Alpine Cuisine
Bauernherbst starts on the day local herdsmen drive livestock down from the high pastures: colourfully decorated animals are greeted with dancing, music and feasting by villagers in dirndls and lederhosen.
Winter preparations are set in motion. Jams, schnapps and cheeses made, meats cured, fruit and veg preserved, cereals and grains stored. Farms open for visitors to taste and buy local produce or try bucolic skills such as cheese-making, markets are heavy with produce and handicrafts and traditional cultural and sporting events pop ups across the region.
SalzburgerLand's restaurants are spoilt for choice of ingredients from the highest concentration of organic farms in Europe - no surprise the region has the highest concentration of award-winning chefs in Austria. Tempting menus draw inspiration from ancient family recipes to create new Alpine cuisine - fascinating flavours and surprising combinations.
