Hotel Tannenhof announces new Head Chef, James Baron

Head Chef, James Baron.
Hotel Tannenhof, the exclusive private five-star property in the heart of the Arlberg announces the arrival of its new Head Chef, James Baron. An alumnus of numerous Michelin star restaurants including The Fat Duck, Schloss Schauenstein and Hotel Le Terminus, Baron brings fresh creativity and inspiration to the Tannenhof kitchen.  

Drawing on his unique experience, which spans the United Kingdom, USA, Switzerland and Austria, Baron has created an evolving menu that reflects the roots and traditions of Tyrol, but with an innovative and dynamic edge.   

His signature eight-course tasting menu, for instance, pairs duck liver with quince and Perigord truffle; pikeperch with black salsify; veal with mandarin; and sea buckthorn with carrot and blood orange.  

Not only is each course a true work of art, but its ingredient are thoughtfully, responsibly and locally sourced – be it butter from local Jersey cows (not a common sight in the Tyrollian mountains!) or herbs foraged from the surrounding hills. Not one for passing food fads or pretentious ingredients, Baron has crafted a menu that is as classic as it is daring; as consistent as it is stylish.  

Set in the beautiful surrounds of Hotel Tannenhof’s small and intimate dining room – commanding views down the valley over the twinkling lights of St Anton – Baron’s culinary prowess is matched with a carefully-curated wine list by expert sommelier Paula Bosch. The complex layering of flavours in each dish is complemented by a truly excellent collection of fine wines.  

Guests of Hotel Tannenhof enjoy a menu, which changes daily, not just seasonally, and can choose to dine in the restaurant, their private suite or – on warmer evenings – the picturesque terrace. Baron and his team also conjure up exquisite breakfasts, lunches, afternoon snacks and packed lunches, all individually tailored to guest’s plans to explore the mountains.  

James Baron, Hotel Tannenhof’s new Head Chef comments, “I am thrilled to be part of hotel Tannenhof’s great team. I am joining an immensely creative and spirited hotel where I am able to express and develop my culinary ideas. Together we are creating an unforgettable experience for our guests.“
