Jacqueline Pfeiffer of Le Ciel at the Grand Hotel Wien won the title of Austria's Chef of the Year in the Acqua Panna Special Prizes category. "As a chef, there is nothing I value more than the daily feedback and 'awards' I receive from my guests. But of course this kind of professional award as best chef of the year 2012 is a great pleasure for me. It's both a confirmation and a strong incentive. The fact that I can consider myself part of the league of great chefs who received the prize before me is an especially meaningful honor."
