Walter Jost was born in 1946 in St Veit/Glan, Auatria. After business school, he started as an apprentice in 1962 at the age of 16 at the Hotel Sandwirt in Klagenfurt, Austria.
In the late 1970’s, after working with Great Chefs Werner Matt and Heinz Winkler, he began to become interested in light kitchen foods and created a new “Light Austrian Cuisine”. In 1984 he was awarded his first toque by Gault Millau and in 1998, after holding two toques at Gartenhotel Tummlerhof, the Great Chefs television team showed up to tape Chef Walter for ORF and the Discovery Channel’s Great Chefs of Austria series
The hotel is located in the ski area of Seefeld, and is closed during the spring and summer months. In the off season, Chef Jost is responsible for the Austrian Gault Millau Week at the Hilton in Bahrain; the Grosvenor House in London; Hilton in Kuala Lumpur; the Jakarta-Hilton; the Jangou in Peking and the Nagoya-Hilton Japan. He also teaches several cooking classes through-out Austria in the summer.
