1. Prepare your own Potato Soup

I found my love for potato soup with star chef Heinz Winkler in Aschau. I will never forget this day because the soup was served with fresh white truffles. The basket with the white truffles was in the kitchen in the morning and I could smell the truffles, which I didn’t know at that time, one floor below the staff entrance in the underground car park. This soup was a formative experience for me and I would like to pass on my recipe.
