About Us

Chefs on the Mountain is a culinary festival taking place over the course of two weekends in 2019, created and hosted by The Capra, a luxurious five-star boutique hotel in the heart of the pristine and picturesque ski resort of Saas-Fee, Switzerland. The village has a deep-rooted culture in hospitality and also has some hidden gems to offer when it comes to dining. This makes it an ideal place for high-flying cooks to slow down, to recharge with nature and to replenish new energy.

For the fourth consecutive year, Chefs on the Mountain offers leading international chefs the opportunity to participate in the creation of a range of exclusive menus served in The Capra’s Fine Dining restaurant during the event.

The guests of Chefs on the Mountain have the opportunity to dine on the exclusive menus and have an unprecedented access to the chefs, whether in the kitchen or the restaurant during the course of the event.

The menus created contain ingredients that come from the mountain region of Saas-Fee and Switzerland, if possible. Fantastic Swiss wines, which are often difficult to obtain in other European countries, are served alongside the created menus and are explained by wine connoisseurs throughout.

The Chefs

Your host

Daniel Kornhuber – The Capra’s Head Chef

Daniel’s kitchen style has evolved over time to the one that is now.

It is characterized by honest craftsmanship mixed with creativity, precision and much love for local, high-quality products.

The simplicity and taste of a dish should be in the foreground, then come creativity and presentation.

Daniel often has only three to four components on the plate together form a harmony.

For a successful evening of the guests not only the kitchen plays a role but also the presentation of the service, a small show insert must not be missing.
