Service & Great Food – the Secrets of Success

Schlemmer Atlas 2023 – double triumph for the Hubertusstube at
SPA-Hotel Jagdhof in Neustift, Tyrol, Austria

Personal, understated, but always present – great service is a principle that has shaped the SPA-Hotel Jagdhof in the Stubai Valley for many decades. Germany’s Schlemmer Atlas gourmet guide has now recognised the Hubertusstube’s excellence by endowing it with the Service Team of the Year 2023 award. Plus: Chef Christian Jeske is listed among Austria’s TOP 50 chefs. These are just the latest triumphs in this year’s already impressive series of major awards for the Jagdhof.

Service Team of the Year & Austria’s TOP 50 Chefs

Two of the coveted Schlemmer Atlas Awards from the renowned Busche Verlag publishing house went to the SPA-Hotel Jagdhof and its Hubertusstube restaurant this year: the service team headed by Karlheinz Jonak was awarded Service Team of the Year 2023, and new Head Chef Christian Jeske has gone straight into Austria’s TOP 50. The Schlemmer & Schlummer Atlas Awards were presented as part of Busche’s gala at the PUR Gourmet Trade Fair in Salzburg on 17 and 18 April.

Both of these awards confirm that we’re on the right track looking forward. However, they also honour the vision and drive of my grandparents and parents who established the Jagdhof as a gourmet hotspot. As a family, we’re incredibly proud and grateful to be continuing along the path they laid for us. With our great teams under the superb leadership of Chef Christian Jeske, Maître Karlheinz Jonak and Albin Mayr, our Restaurant Manager and Head Sommelier, we intend to keep following this path to the peaks of success.

Quality and Personality

The SPA-Hotel Jagdhof’s three essential success factors: ‘We are fortunate to be able to work with extraordinary products and suppliers – the best-quality ingredients are to be found on our own doorstep. Secondly, we benefit from brilliant teamwork, and the crew knows the Jagdhof inside out. The third factor, of course, is the Pfurtscheller family, especially Alban Pfurtscheller whose innovative spirit has created ideal conditions for success,’ said Albin Mayr, Restaurant Manager and Head Sommelier, while a beaming Head Chef Christian Jeske took possession of the awards on behalf of the whole Jagdhof team.

Schlemmer Atlas

The annual awards are based on the tried and tested Schlemmer Atlas Cooking Spoon rating system (more spoons = more kudos). The Schlemmer Atlas is particularly interested in role models, teamwork, innovation, accountability and regional reputation. The publishing house also acts as one of the largest platforms for the meeting of gastronomic and hotel industries.
