The next Kitchenation
Viktoria Fuchs | Romantik Hotel Spielweg, Münstertal, German
Traditional and cosmopolitan, wild and established – in her cooking, Viki Fuchs fuses flavours that do not initially seem to belong together.
She is head chef at Romantik Hotel Spielweg, a property that has been in the Fuchs family since 1861. Here, tradition meets the modern age as Viki’s culinary talent is #wildstyle. She serves octopus with boar and turns it into dim sum or creates a venison vitello. She is an exciting modern-day cook.
Viktoria Fuchs has spent time in the kitchen of the Romantik Hotel Spielweg since she was a small child. That was when her father, Karl-Josef Fuchs, was head chef. Since then, she has taken charge of the pots and pans and continues to prepare traditional regional cuisine with game from the hotel’s own hunting grounds. But as a cosmopolitan young chef, she gives the dishes her own twist: Southeast Asian spices and techniques – all served up with home-made bread as well as fruit and vegetables from the Black Forest. Her style of cooking is a reflection of her personality – warm, cheerful, grounded and extremely cosmopolitan.
