Food Philosophy at the Well-Being Hotel Italy

Food to heal and stimulate all the senses

Reserved for guests on Retreat, our new Wellness Healing Gourmet Menu was created by Emanuele Giorgione, the internationally renowned Healing Chef, together with our Chef de Cuisine and Dr. Med. Alexander Angerer, our in-house doctor, and Patrizia Bortolin, Spa Director and Transformational Wellness Coach at the well-being hotel, Italy. 

‘The Preidlhof Way’ philosophy is to revitalise the pleasure factor in the eating experience, to train the senses, to promote perception and body awareness, to achieve longer lasting, health benefits. 

So, it isn’t just about what you eat, but also why you eat, how and where.  Do you chew properly?  Are your senses trained to their full potential, to smell, taste, and to describe?   Do you know the 7 types of hunger?   Do you really savour your food?

These experiences are passed on by Patrizia Bortolin directly as well as the spa therapists and healers.  All have a strong background in health and prevention and have  undergone in-depth training led by Slow Food experts, psychologists and wellness experts.  They incorporate practical experience in the sessions to offer each guest an  enchanting and highly sensorial experience.


Wholefood and predominantly plant-based with South Tyrolean and Mediterranean influences, the menu is free of gluten, lactose, egg, soy, and sugar.  The selection changes every evening and comprises seven courses incorporating the freshest ingredients in season.
