Austria’s first class gourmet cuisine is set to become that little bit more accessible during the course of March. With the help of coffee makers, Nespresso, some of Austria’s best restaurants will be offering their lunch and evening menus to diners at a discounted rate during the event entitled "Gourmet Weeks".
For the fourth time Nespresso have teamed up with Gault Millau restaurant guide to give food fans the chance to affordably sample some of the best cuisine that Austria has to offer. The price of the menu depends on the number of toques (chef’s hats and points system from Gault Millau) that the venue has been awarded. A two course lunch however in all of the participating restaurants will cost between 14 and 29 Euros with a three course evening meal priced between 24 and 50 Euros. Each meal is of course concluded with a Nespresso at the customer’s discretion.
Head of Nespresso in Austria, Dietmar Keuschnig who is very pleased with the continuing partnership between his company and Gault Millau said, "We have noticed, as well as an increase in enthusiastic customers, several more enquiries from top restaurants for our product. Nespresso wins round more and more culinary locations with its fine aroma and his quality standards and that pleases me not only as an employee of Nespresso but also as a passionate connoisseur."
Karl and Rudi from Restaurant-Hotel Obauer in Werfen in Salzburg will be taking part in the Gourmet Weeks for the fourth time. The pair, who participate once again on the grounds that the event not only promotes Austrian culture but also encourages further innovation in the country’s food industry, said, "The Nespresso Gourmet Weeks show that the cooperation of visionary companies, strong brands and creative cooks is essentially in the culinary arena."
The event will take place from 5 to 25 March 2012 around Austria.
