Max Meat Boutique

Max Pfeiffenberger is Patron and ePONYM

of the meat and fish dish station. „Brutal regional“ (meaning 'resolutely regional') is Max’s slogan for his cuisine and his principle when he chooses his viands. At the LUMBERJACK, he combines these high standards with organic quality. True to the motto of „flexitarians“ - 'if I choose meat, then just high quality one, whose origin is known' - that’s how Max runs his meat boutique at the LUMBERJACK. In the meat vitrine at the front of his station, he presents the pieces of meat that he uses for his dishes. In the dry ager, the fine cuts mature until they are worthy to land on Max’s lava grill to be served rare, medium or well-done.

Meat only from the valley

The meat for the dishes in Max Meat Boutique is exclusively from Kleinarl and Wagrain. The organic farmers of the cooperative from Bio aus dem Tal supply Max with a whole cattle every two weeks for his station at the LUMBERJACK - to be precise, two halves of beef and the innards. Max and his butcher utilize everything from 'nose to tail' as it is called. Sustainable recycling of all parts of an animal, self-evident for any butcher or farmer back in the days.

Cook by CALLING and passion

At the tender age of five, Max was convinced: I will become a chef. 1994 he started an apprenticeship as a cook in Flachau. Then his international apprenticeship and travel year in the top gastronomy around the globe began. When he became a father for the first time in 2002, it became clear for him to put his passion for cooking back into his home region Salzburg, now as a chef.  

Since 2015 Max has been an independent host and chef with his own restaurant who focuses on regionality, healthy and tasty food. We, Eva and Maria, have been working successfully with Max since the beginning as a caterer for the ALPIN CHALETS. As a second and important pillar, Max runs a catering company together with a partner.

Station Max Meat Boutique

Meat in the highest PERFECTION

Max’s know-how in terms of meat maturing, his handling of all parts of the animal, his claim to make something special out of every single piece of meat, corresponds 100% with the idea of a flexitarian: If I choose meat, then just high quality, in regionally organic quality of an animal whose origin is known.

Max only uses Austrian products that are fresh and seasonal, he creates regional and international culinary delicacies - at the LUMBERJACK in organic quality. These shared values and Max’s creativity unite us and made him the first choice for meat dishes at the LUMBERJACK. Max is an important partner and a guarantor for the implementation of the LUMBERJACK idea - in terms of quality and sustainability.  

The meals in Max Meat Boutique will follow in the upcoming weeks.
