(4/1/2007)

If asked to describe Hangar-7 in Salzburg, Austria you might say it was a gourmet restaurant, a cutting edge contemporary art gallery, a performance and presentation venue, home to several trendy bars and an aircraft museum. In fact, it's all this and more. Defying description or categorization, the impressive and steel-and-glass structure and all it encompasses, in the word of its creators, is "a place where art, passion, technology and refined living meet."

Founded by the Flying Bulls of Salzburg, a group of pilots and aviation enthusiasts who scour the world for vintage aircraft that they purchase and lovingly restore, Hangar-7 is the home to the group's historical collection of aircraft – some more than 60 years old – all maintained in an airworthy state, ready for their next flight leaving from the adjoining Salzburg airport's runway.

But what fun is having one of the world's most impressive collection of flying machines if you can't show them off to the world? To that end, the Flying Bulls opened Hangar-7 in 2003 featuring:

• An aircraft museum open daily from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. .

Ikarus Restaurant open daily for lunch and dinner, a gourmet restaurant which hosts a different celebrity chef and his or her cuisine each month. And, in keeping with Ikarus' unrivaled reputation for an ever-changing dining experience, Bali's very own Heinz von Holzen will be traveling with his own culinary team to Austria to showcase Balinese cuisine for the entire month of June 2007.

To learn more about Heinz, his award winning Balinese cuisine and his definitive cookery books on the subject visit his website at [Balifoods.com].

Mayday Bar - Open every day from 5:30 p.m. until 3:00 a.m. the following morning. It's unique bar surface is, in fact, an interactive computer monitor where guests can perform aircraft maneuvers, direct cartoon generated waiters and waitresses moving through the streets of New York while avoiding customers drinks, and even send text messages to other guests seated along the massive bar. An adjacent Cigar Lounge offers a relaxed atmosphere for premium smokes and congeniality amidst the warm embrace of deep leather seats, lush carpets and hand-rubbed precious woods.

The Three Sixty Bar - Accessible only via a single stairway and situated at the very top of the hangar, this bar's all-glass floor provides a "bird's eye view" of the Flying Bulls aircraft collection.

Carp Diem Lounge - open each day from 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. is adjacent to the aircraft collection offering visitors a perfect locale for an expertly brewed espresso or something from a range of light food and snacks.

More About Heinz von Holzen

Chilli peppers, ginger root, turmeric root, galangal root, kencur, salam leaves and lemongrass - the aromas wafting from the kitchen of Heinz von Holzen have absolutely nothing to do with Swiss culinary tradition. Nor can they, since Heinz von Holzen, born in Stans, Switzerland, in 1958, is more or less the discoverer of and sage in matters of Balinese culinary art. It's perhaps unbelievable to think that "The Food of Bali" - written and photographed by the Swiss-born cook in 1993 - was the first cookbook to embrace the world of Balinese cuisine. And, on an island where fine Balinese dining options are surprisingly few, Heinz's Bumbu Bali is widely considered the best of its kind; the recipient of "Best Balinese Restaurant" awards from the Government of Bali.

Von Holzen's career didn't get off to the smoothest of starts. He was interested in technology and began studying mechanical engineering. But three and a half years of working in an office bored him to such an extent that he decided to look for another apprenticeship position. Changing to a chef's apprentice, he fell in love with cooking on the very first day. Von Holzen started at the Hotel de La Paix in Lucerne, worked his way up the culinary and career ladder in various Hilton hotels, arrived in Singapore as a sous-chef in 1985, where he switched to the Hyatt Regency, subsequently becoming head chef of the Grand Hyatt Bali in 1990.

Balinese restaurants, explains von Holzen, tend to offer very similar dishes: a little Indonesian, a little Italian, a little French. In his search for authentic Balinese recipes, von Holzen staged a cooking competition for 159 Balinese staff at the Grand Hyatt. He was surprised and overwhelmed by the variety of flavors and dishes that emerged as a result of the competition. The recipes uncovered at the Hyatt went into "The Food of Bali," forming the foundation for each of the dishes served by von Holzen at the Bumbu Bali today: roasted duck or grilled fish in banana leaves, ox tongue in sweet nutmeg sauce, braised squid in lime basil.

Several books, numerous promotional trips and well-attended cookery seminars later, Heinz von Holzen has become the ambassador of Balinese cooking. The Bumbu Bali has been rated the best Balinese restaurant in Bali several times, and von Holzen himself has been voted one of Bali’s 21 most important personalities owing to his services to local cooking. "Balinese cooking," says von Holzen, "has genuinely taken hold over everything I do." Is there anything typically Swiss left of him? A love of endurance sport, perhaps. And of course the discipline and enthusiasm with which he prepares and globally promotes Balinese cooking.
