Gasthof Blaue Quelle - Erl

Several years ago, the Blaue Quelle was able to secure initially one and, over the course of its history, two toques from Gault Millau. Also, in the current year, Alexander Struth, a gastronome at heart, has maintained the level of 2 toques. This is his story:

"My education began at the Hotel Management School Villa Blanka in Innsbruck, which I completed with a diploma in 1989. In the same year, I worked during the winter season at Almhof Schneider in Lech, where I expanded my knowledge in wine service. From May to October 1990, I worked as a steward on a private yacht, moving between the USA and the Caribbean. In the winter season of 1990, I started working in the Klösterle/Almhof Schneider restaurant in wine service, and in 1991, I worked for the first time in this establishment as a chef. In the summer of 1991, I was hired in the kitchen of the Hotel Gasthof Blaue Quelle in Erl. In 1998, my wife Gaby and I took over this family business. From 1998 to 2006, I not only worked as a chef but also operated a cocktail bar in the house. From 2006, I focused on more ambitious cooking, and in 2016, we achieved our first toque. Since 2019, we have been running a 2-toque restaurant!

After Villa Blanka Hotel Management School, my interest was solely in service. I only entered the profession of a chef through my wife Gaby, who was already working in the family business at that time. Most of my knowledge in the kitchen I acquired and expanded on my own in the following years through various specialized books.

My professional vision: With my passion for quality, I aim for the absolute delight of the palate!"
-- Alexander Struth
