Rudi Pichler sees himself as host of Ski & Culinary Pleasure. He comes from Kleinarl and learned to cook from top chef Aichhorn. Afterwards, his culinary journey lead him on to legendary cooking giants such as Sepp Schellhorn as well as Rudi and Karl Obauer. His love of raw materials and his overwhelming curiosity lead Rudi Pichler to an alpine hut in Switzerland, where he learns to make cheese. In South Africa he discovers his love of baking bread. Nowadays his passion for bread is even bigger. Rudi Pichler loves the stage and starts his stage career with his film “Lehrling der Zeit“ (“Apprentice of Time”). Where he heads off on a mental journey back in time to the post-war period and learns to appreciate “old” regional foodstuffs. Today he combines “old“ produce with modern culinary skills. Thus tasty works of art are created. Regionality is centre stage for Rudi Pichler. Together with producers “Organic from the Valley“ he creates new types of cheeses, tastes and cooks them. When at last they’re perfect, they’re ready for his dishes.

Bio from the valley: 3 “bioneers“ from Kleinarl have a vision: they want to make the Wagrain-Kleinarl valley into a bio-valley. The farmers are passionate organic farmers and love nature and their animals. In their own dairy they produce milk and cheese products. Sustainability and regionality play an important role for the farmers. They’re always looking at the ecological footprint. With “Bio from the Valley” they lay the foundation stone for their dream. They want to spread consciousness amongst the people. At last they’ve achieved their goal and as of now the Wagrainer Hühnerdorf (Hen Village) and the Grosswidmoos Farm provide produce for “Bio from the Valley”. The Steinbauer Bakery is also a member. You can look forward to seeing how the ingredients from “Bio from the Valley” are cooked in Ski & Culinary Pleasure. You’ll be able to taste the difference – that’s for sure.
