Star Chef Dieter Koschina

  • Austrian-born Chef Dieter Koschina has achieved a culinary first for his adopted country by propelling Vila Joya into The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. This two-Michelin-starred restaurant combines local produce with northern European cooking techniques, so guinea fowl is stuffed with black truffles and artichokes, roasted goose liver is served on a broccoli purée with smoked eel, while the country’s ubiquitous bacalhau – dried and salted cod – is confited and paired with beetroot coulis and yogurt.
