Discover the local hero "Snowflake" and the way to happyness - you might even win a ski holiday

Food Unplugged

It is certain! The Food Unplugged goes into the next round! 

The Food Unplugged 2023 was a complete success. Also this year, the Engelberg top chefs have transformed the barbecue area of the Fürenalp cable car into an outdoor kitchen for gourmets. On two evenings, our guests were treated to a wonderful aperitif, amuse bouche and 5-course menu including wine accompaniment at the Wald Dinner. During the day there was also a lot going on at the festival area and spontaneous visitors were allowed to taste their way through the menu of the Wood-Food afternoon.

The next Food Unplugged will take place on the 06th - 09th of June 2024!

At Food Unplugged everything revolves around the original preparation of food, i.e. without electricity and gas. Original, authentic, regional and with lots of passion, the kitchen artists will conjure up fantastic creations on the plate and spoil you.

Kempinski Palace Engelberg

Usually Michéle Müller provides culinary variety in the Cattani Restaurant, the Palace Bar and in the Wintergarden. Now it goes from the kitchen of the 5-star superior hotel off into the nature to be already for the 2nd time with Food Unplugged with the party. This year Michéle Mueller brings a modified variant of the Döner Kebap from its homeland Berlin into the forest. In the evening, she will then cook the main course of the menu together with Victor Stein from the Alpina Einhorn: Brisket of Swiss beef cooked on the grill with carrot chimichurri, served with colorful root vegetables and young potatoes from the embers.
