LA COLOMBE executive Cchef James Gaag will be the chef-in-residence at Red Bull’s Hangar 7 Restaurant Ikarus in Austria for the month of March – an exclusive opportunity, only offered to a handful of chefs each year.

“It doesn‘t matter which continent or country they come from, whether it‘s the USA, South Africa or Japan. Or whether they serve traditional, fusion or molecular cuisine. What matters most is the variety. And, of course, the high quality of the dishes,” says Ikarus.

James joins chefs like Dominque Crenn, Ana Roš, Tim Raue and Pierre Gagniere who have all shared their menus with the patrons of Restaurant Ikarus.

Comments James: “It’s an honour to be in the company of multi-Michelin award winners from all over the globe – to be alongside some of the greatest names in the culinary world is an absolute dream. As the only chef from Africa to be invited this year, I can’t wait to show the rest of the world our unique take on flavour, and share the taste of La Colombe with a new audience.”

Following its opening in 2003, Restaurant Ikarus launched one of the most ambitious projects in the world of international haute cuisine: the guest chef concept. Under the leadership of executive chef Martin Klein and patron Eckart Witzigmann, this concept sees the most creative and successful chefs in the world invited to Salzburg each month. Surrounded by the special glass architecture of Hangar-7 and the historic aeroplanes of the Flying Bulls, the concept is a unique experience for the senses.
