“You just have to look for the positive and stop fixating on the negative”
Economically, the situation is a disaster. No doubt about that. But most of all, we are sorry for the employees who had prepared themselves and were eager to come. That hurts and sometimes makes us sad. But if you put the negative aspects aside for a moment and look around, one thing becomes apparent: We live here surrounded by an incredible natural mountain landscape and for the last few months, we had it all to ourselves. That is a great privilege.
Everything is a matter of perspective: “You just have to look for the positive and stop fixating on the negative” Normally we would both work so much that we hardly have any time left for other things. Right now we have all the time in the world and we make the best of it: I have been learning how to make cocktails and Ethel went skiing a lot.
We both cook very intuitively and create our dishes in the process. Lacking this rhythm and daily routine makes that difficult, however. In this light, we are simply looking forward to finally being able to cook for guests again. Prior to the lockdown, we changed many things here at the Klösterle and it's time to make all these ideas a reality.
