Guest Chefs at Restaurant Ikarus
Guest Chef October 2015: Christopher Kostow
With his degree in philosophy and no formal chef training, Christopher Kostow is certainly not your typical head chef. But perhaps it is for this precise reason that he takes a broader, deeper approach to his work.
Kostow, who has been awarded three Michelin stars at The Restaurant at Meadowood, paints a picture of his own America, playfully reproducing the unique beauty and rich abundance of his culinary, and private, homeland - the Napa Valley in California. In combination with his masterful command of highly diverse culinary techniques, Kostow is able to create an authentic, personal reflection of life in the valley.
Each month at Salzburg’s two Michelin-starred Restaurant Ikarus, a different top international chef creates the menu. For this globally unique concept, Hangar-7 executive chef Martin Klein visits the cream of the crop, takes a look behind the scenes of haute cuisine, and is let in on some exciting culinary secrets. “Culinary Heights at Ikarus” offers a unique glimpse into the world of high-end cuisine and provides an interesting portrait of each guest chef, their culinary philosophy, and the food culture of their country.
