A cooperation between the HLW Don Bosco Vöcklabruck and Jochen Neustifter, JO's Restaurant in Vorchdorf, with the support of the European Capital of Culture Bad Ischl Salzkammergut 2024. 37 pupils from the 3rd year of the HLW Don Bosco Vöcklabruck, four teachers - Elfriede Waldhör, Michaela Schachinger, Michaela Kreuzer, Christine Lahninger and Jochen Neustifter - are reviving the partially lost pub culture in the Salzkammergut.

For several days, we will open the doors of the former Rosenkranzwirt in Gmunden and the Moserei in Scharnstein. We will put our acquired knowledge into practice and take on everything from planning, organisation and costing to designing the menu and, of course, serving and preparing the deliciously created dishes. Traditional regional dishes will be combined with new culinary art and innovative concepts.

About the Wirtshauslabor Salzkammergut 2024 project

The Capital of Culture provides an impetus to revitalise the disappearing pub culture in the countryside. With representatives from local and European top gastronomy as well as art and culture, themed regulars’ tables will be initiated, pubs will be revitalised and pub labs with tourism schools will be convened. In addition, the artistic-performative cooking collective Healthy Boy Band (Lukas Mraz, Philip Rachinger, Felix Schellhorn) developed the “HOT BOX BUILDING” especially for the Capital of Culture in cooperation with friendship. is the “HOT BOX BUILDING”, a mobile installation that works in the form of culinary interventions and performances at various locations and activates them for a certain period of time: in the town centre next to abandoned inns, on the lake in front of the picturesque mountain panorama, in the field directly at the producers or in the abandoned industrial hall as an ambassador for the cause.
