It's simply fabulous what the region around Jochpass has to offer – and that goes for the food too. Passionate hosts, we use it all to our, and especially your, advantage, therefore we buy all our fresh produce from local farmers. And with these ingredients, we create our own soups, salad variations and traditional dishes; sometimes, we even go on to refine them according to our very own recipe.
In addition, we continue, assisted by Raoul, our chef by calling, our search for old family recipes. That's why you will find on our menu fabulous dishes such as... “Urner Häfelichabis”
This traditional stew containing mutton, a generous amount of white cabbage, carrots, onions and potatoes is served in an original bowl, the aforementioned “Töpfli”. “Graved Lachs Raoul”
Choicest salmon from Norway, prepared according to Raoul's own recipe, with a fresh herbs and sea salt marinade. Or how about our homemade corn croquettes, our warm chocolate tart served in a glass, our “Hacktätschli” (ground meat patties), and so on, and so forth. We could go on at length whetting your appetite here. But we won't, because we have a much better suggestion: come on up to Bärghuis Jochpass and find out about our cuisine yourself!
Of course, we don't prepare everything up here on our own – why should we when there are excellent finished products around? Delicacies such as the mouth-watering Zuger Kirschtorte (cherry brandy cake) from Konditorei Meier in Zug, or the alp bratwurst from Metzgerei Gabriel in Wolfenschiessen are essential items on our menu.
