Gastronomy at the First Salzburg Festival Ball 2012: Indulgence at the Highest Level
published in: Festival Ball
A native son of Salzburg, chef Andreas Döllerer will create the menu for the first Salzburg Festival Ball’s gala dinner. Döllerer intends to treat the ball guests to classical and regional dishes featuring delicacies produced locally, refined with a pinch of originality and sophisticated charm. Andreas Döllerer is considered one of the creative stars among Austria’s chefs and the inventor of “cuisine alpine”. In September 2010 he was named “Chef of the Year” by the culinary guidebook Gault Millau.
The Tourism Schools Salzburg Klessheim will be his partner, serving up the Festival menu at the Residenz. The schools’ outstanding reputation is a perfect match for the Ball’s exclusive gala dinner. Not only is the professional knowledge of the students important, but also their communicational abilities. They will work together with Andreas Döllerer and his team in the kitchen and as servers.
A long-term partner of the Salzburg Festival, Moët Hennessy will also support the first Salzburg Festival Ball. Apart from a high-carat champagne selection, two cocktail bars will also offer first-rate spirits. Moët & Chandon is a symbol worldwide for exclusive indulgence, for glamorous celebrations and special moments. The brand was the first to make champagne known internationally, creating its importance as the drink for special moments. Moët & Chandon is the most popular champagne in the world – even the libretto of Richard Strauss’ opera Arabella mentions Moët & Chandon! It stands for tradition as well as contemporary enjoyment. Quality, elegance, beauty and the consciousness of its luxury have always been the standards for the creation of this unique beverage.
For over 20 years, Nestlé has supported the Salzburg Festival as a main sponsor, and so the company also supports the first Salzburg Festival Ball. Striving for perfection in the shape of outstanding moments of enjoyment is common ground for the Salzburg Festival and Nestlé. Selected products like the mineral waters San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, Baci chocolates as well as the exclusive ice cream creations of the Antica Gelateria del Corso, Nestlé-Schöller’s premium brand, will be offered as part of the Festival Ball. Furthermore, a Nespresso bar in the Karl-Böhm-Saal will serve first-rate coffee specialties.
For many years, Salzburg’s brewery Stieglbrauerei and the Salzburg Festival have enjoyed an extraordinary cooperation. The brand is inextricably linked to the city of Salzburg. Thus, it is a matter of course for Stiegl to enhance the Salzburg Festival Ball by providing a great variation of its beer specialties as well as Flüx, the first lemonade brewed according to the Purity Law. For the Ball, Stiegl will install a brewer’s inn at the Haus für Mozart, catering to the ball’s guests there with its best products. The largest private brewery in Austria, the Stieglbrauerei has been brewing beer successfully in Salzburg since 1492 as an independent, family-owned company. Relying on its brewmasters’ highest art, it sets great store by quality. The private Salzburg-based brewery successfully unites tradition and innovation, making Stiegl the most successful beer brand in Austria.
