Dominik Hartmann threw the first big party: there were bubbles, bread, cheese and great dishes.
Monday evening, 5 p.m., in Rickenbach near Schwyz: a short thunderstorm has just passed overhead, but even that can’t dampen the party spirit: Dominik Hartmann, co-owner and head chef of Restaurant Magdalena (2 Michelin stars, 16 GaultMillau points), extended an invitation to his first Kitchen Party. Many of his chef colleagues from all over Switzerland came, 200 guests were served at the various cooking stations and, at the champagne station, a bubble machine produced shimmering rainbow bubbles into the evening.
Dominik Hartmann’s place is in the V-ZUG food truck, and naturally the ambassador for the household appliance manufacturer is cooking vegetarian cuisine as always: a beurre blanc sauce based on fermented mushrooms, served with fresh morels, braised walnuts and agretti salad. “There is a great atmosphere in this truck, it has everything you need for cooking and the guests love seeing us in here”, says Hartmann of his work in this unusual setting.
