"Aroma Kitchen“ is what Tanja Grandits calls her culinary philosophy. It succeeds not only when tastes harmonize with each other perfectly, but also when contrasting flavours and textures, such as crispy and creamy, or juicy and spicy, meet in the mouth. Sweet potato puree served with saffron butter, loup de mer is graced with a seasoning of ajowan and a smooth cream of corn is served with a refreshing salsa of grapefruit. Everything she creates centers on spices and colors. Her restaurant kitchen is strewn with small jars containing coriander, ginger and many varieties of chillies, along with a stash of fresh herbs that completes her culinary treasure trove! There is not a plate that leaves her kitchen that hasn't been decorated with fresh lime cress or basil tempura.
The Gault Millau honored Chef (17 Points) cooks with an vibrant array of colours to enhance the flavor of her dishes. Her colour scheme is lively; reaching from warm orange and refreshing green to a delicate pink. Because colors not only contain a visual charm of their own but also correspond to specific aspects of our sense of taste. A perfect combination of colors and spices is an expression of pure joy of life on a plate. Cooked from the heart, Tanja Grandits dishes provide a sense of well-being for the mind, body and soul.
