Food from the wild

Silvia Furtwängler lives toghether with her family in the middle of nature and they live mostly from what the nature ca provide.

Silvia will be our teacher when we learn how to cook food based on raw material from the wilderness.

Cooking with a touch of wilderness

To fish with a rod, is well know to everyone. But the traditsional skill of fishing with a fishingnet, is pretty much a higher art of fishing.

To be engaged in traditional fishing with a fishingnet, it is required to have a knowledge of weather and wind conditiones, the habits and living conditiones of the fish where it`s living and of course also the actual knowledge of how to throw, pull up and mintain the fishingnets.

Our experience of cooking with a touch of wilderness ist unique and completely based on natural ingredients and preparationes.

Natural ingredients

All food that we cook together ; and later on eat will be based intirely on natural ingredients and prepared according to old traditional recipes delivered dow through generationes.

Bread, chees or youghurt....we will prepare the food in the same way it`s been done throughout the centuries.

The reward of our loving preparation of the food will be the refined taste that will be even more noticeable, as we sit down toghether by the nicely layed table to eat the food in the traditional old fashion.

Fishing in the evening

In in the early evening we got out with the boat on the lake to throw the fishingnets.

In the evening we will sit together in front of the fireplace. talk about different ways of how to prepare fish ans together we will plan teh menue for the next day.

The lunch gives us a little breather and then we start the preparationes four our four - course evening menu.
