Meanwhile, he earned two toques, two Gault Millau hoods, and was named one of the greatest talents in the culinary industry by Gault Millau. Having worked as head chef at hotel restaurant Bergergut before, chef Thomas Hofer returned in 2016 and now showcases his exciting multiple-award-winning cuisine at this fantastic fine-dining location.
