Alexander Huber is chef at restaurant Huberwirt. Alexander wanted to become a chef since he was a child. He grew up in his family's tavern, after which he started his culinary studies. His first cooking experiences took him to Michelin starred restaurants all around the country. In 2005, he returned to his hometown and took over the family business, restaurant Huberwirt. In 2013 his creative tavern-style cooking and high-class cuisine were awarded a coveted Michelin star. We asked the chef some questions to get to know him better, about his culinary inspiration, his favourite dish, and much more.
Alexander, how would you describe your cooking style?
Bavarian avant-garde, as well as neo-Wirthauskuchl.
What's your favourite dish to make?
I enjoy making braised food such as ox cheek, or Böfflamott (pot roast) because these dishes have a soul.
I like working with mushrooms, but also with tomatoes.
Who is one of your top suppliers or producers?
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced in your culinary career?
The duties at restaurant Huberwirt are a new challenge every day. The tradition here is long and some culinary tasks already awaited me.
Which gastronomic trend are you excited about the most?
The regionality and the sustainability trends in the gastronomic world are great, but also the new casual approach in the Michelin restaurants. We have followed and lived these trends for many decades.
If you could only eat one dish for the rest of your life, what would that be?
Difficult to say, but Wiener schnitzel or pasta always works for me.
What’s one thing in the area that your guests absolutely need to see or do?
I would recommend guests to visit the historic castle in Burghausen, and the fantastic golf course in Pleiskirchen. Of course, a visit to restaurant Huberwirt should not be missed afterwards.
Thank you, Alexander.
