The atmospheric restaurant is managed by Udo Hankh, a Eurotoques chef, who delights customers with his sophisticated and varied gourmet cuisine. The young service team led by Christine Hankh provides a charming and professional service always along the lines: "hospitality comes from the heart".

Udo Hankh - CV and culinary philosophy

"Quality demands passion"

Udo Hank, who now runs the kitchen with immense passion and creativity, was born in 1974 and grew up immersed in the world of gastronomy. Even as a child, he would rather go to the market with his father and grandmother than go to kindergarten or school.

Udo Hankh Before he took over the demanding and varied tasks involved in the parental business, he underwent a hard, but ultimately valuable training with gourmet chefs such as Joachim Wissler, Heinz Winkler and Karlheinz Hauser.

If asked to name his all-time favourite dish, it would be his grandmother's beef olives. Beef olives are still on the menu at the Lindenhof and are still lovingly prepared using the traditional recipe on the principle that "even a beef olive can be worth three stars".

Udo HankhThe cliché of "I always wanted to be a cook" does not apply in the case of Udo Hankh, because he actually started his career in gastronomy behind the counter in his parents' business. However, he soon realised that a career in hotel management would not provide the excitement that is so important to him. "My choice of career came as a great surprise to my family and teachers, because up to then I had always tried to avoid cooking". He could also have aspired to study architecture. Fortunately for the guests of the Lindenhof, – he survived. What has remained is the love of fine things and forms, which he brings to life for every guest of the Lindenhof with each renovation and extension.

Udo HankhThe second important aspect of his philosophy is continuity. In his opinion the most important thing about cooking is creativity and solid practical skills. It is not so much about processing some exclusive products, but much more about what you can conjure up from the available ingredients with love, fun and good ideas. Making something special out of the "simplest" ingredients, is something that is also reflected in the Lindenhof, in the balance between aromatic gourmet cooking and carefully prepared regional dishes. The second most important aspect of his philosophy for first class cuisine is consistency. The challenge is to guarantee the same high quality every day.

This is the task Udo Hankh and his dedicated kitchen team have set themselves, because for them, there is nothing better than to receive feedback from satisfied guests.
