THE LAST SUPPER – LECH, AUSTRIA

Posted by on Sep 1, 2015 in FOOD, TRAVEL | No Comments

After today’s hiking adventure in the Austrian Alps, we were both completely famished!

We each had a post-hike pampering sesh – the boy went for a long massage at Aurelio Spa while I opted for a good ol’ traditional hot bubbly bath back in the room.

With rumbling tummies to attend to and thirst to quench, it was time to head down to the hotel’s amazing gourmet restaurant, Aurelio’s, once more to have our last supper in Lech *sob sob*.

Made with champagne, champagne jelly, elderflower sorbet, elderflower sparling wine (made in-house), lemon gel, lemon malto and decorated with lemon zest, mint leaf and needle leaves. Light, refreshing, fizzy and alcoholic – Just what you need to end a deliciously light summery meal.

I have a thing with seeing the nightlife of every place I visit and seeing how a place lights up in the evening. I believe each place comes alive in its own special way when the sun goes down!

So, off for a romantic stroll into town we go…
