If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Laulenzi Opens in Hotel Bachmair Weissach

Submitted by on May 26, 2012 – 12:35 amNo Comment

International fusion cuisine has arrived along the Tegernsee Lake with the opening of Euro-Asian restaurant Laulenzi in the Hotel Bachmair Weissach, Wiesseer Strasse 1, Weissach, Germany (map).

The 150-year-old Bachmair Weissach, a member of Design Hotels™, has just completed an extensive renovation.

The unusual namesake of the new fusion restaurant was a kitchen-hand known as Laurenzi, who worked at Bachmair inn when it first opened. In 1862 the young man set sail for the Far East in order to acquaint himself with the many mysteries of the Orient, both in terms of cuisine and women.

The lothario proved to be such a hit with the local female population that his departure from the Hong Kong harbor was accompanied by many longing calls of “Laulenzi, Laulenzi”.

Back in his homeland, Laurenzi’s culinary discoveries were committed to paper and then quickly forgotten. Fast forward 150 years and the newly discovered travel journal has provided the inspiration for executive chef Frank Mollenhauer’s fusion menu at Laulenzi restaurant.

The European-Asian fusion menu features such dishes as grilled scallops with enoki mushrooms served with a candied grapefruit and asparagus salad and sweet spring rolls with mango coulis and chili-raspberry sorbet.

Chef Mollenhauer has previously worked at Michelin starred restaurants including Restaurant Lakme in Aachen, Germany and Chateaux Neercanne in Maastricht, Netherlands.
