Last February, the general managers of Kempinski Hotels worldwide gathered in Berlin for an annual meeting.
At this meeting, Reto Wittwer, President and CEO of Kempinski Hotels issued a challenge to all the general managers gathered in Berlin:
“Does your hotel have a signature dish that is —
– Popular with the hotel’s guests?
– Has a history/story attached to it?
– Is unique in its preparation and ingredients?
– Is related and relevant to its location?
– Is timeless and not bound to its creator and most importantly
– Can you cook it?”

DON’T MISS THESE AT KEMPINSKI HOTELS
As they say ‘ the proof is in the pudding’ and last February, each Kempinski General Manager had to demonstrate his or her skills with the spatula and present the hotel’s signature dish.
The range was as varied as Kempinski’s hotels around the world:
All 70 dishes were cooked and tasted at the hotel school in Landshut.
Reto Wittwer, on issuing his challenge, said: “Our strategic vision is for Kempinski to become an undisputed leader in the hotel and restaurant industry.”
He continued: “Kempinski has a fine heritage in gastronomy, and this is what we want to build on. I asked our general managers to ‘walk the talk” while at the same time honoring and respecting the local culture our hotels are located in.”
