Liquid happiness – that’s what it says on her homepage and it’s a promise that’s kept at the restaurant from Tuesdays to Fridays. Ulli Natter’s Elfenküche became an attraction in Dornbirn soon after she opened it in 2011. Everything in Ulli’s five-elements kitchen revolves around the sixth element: the devotion, love and attention that’s given to the sowing, harvesting, processing and serving of food. Depending on the season, certain organs need strengthening with the help of invigorating food. That’s provided in steaming dishes and preserving jars, which – without any artificial aids – last for remarkably long times. Ulli Natter used to be a nutritionist who worked to the rules of Chinese medicine before she succumbed to her heart’s desire and started to cook. She simply knows what she’s doing.
