The ninth edition of “A taste for skiing” the culinary initiative with the most stars in the Alps, will give you the chance to taste some traditional dishes from the childhood memories of the gourmet chefs taking part. They include big names like Giorgio Locatelli, Norbert Niederkofler, Matteo Metullio, Nicola Laera, Enrico and Roberto Cerea, Enrico Bartolini, Francesco Baldissarutti, Andrea Aprea, Giuseppe Biuso and Alberto Faccani.
On 2 December Alta Badia will reopen its doors to the numerous downhill ski lovers. The famous Sellaronda will open on December 6.
We remember people, places, emotions or times. All of our memories nurture the perfumes and flavours of our childhood. In fact, the slogan of the ninth edition of A taste for skiing, starting with the traditional Gourmet Skisafari, which gets underway on 10 December, is “Childhood flavours”.
So, A taste for skiing 2017/18 will be marked by the traditional dishes that the gourmet chefs taking part loved the most when they were children. They will create recipes based on what their parents or grandparents used to serve up, but with their own touch, in various refuges in Alta Badia.
The concept of the initiative is unchanged: 13 gourmet chefs will each be assigned to a refuge on the slopes of Alta Badia, where they will create a recipe to be served to the skiers throughout the whole winter season. The dishes will tell a story, connected with the childhood and family of the chefs and the local products, as well as the producers themselves. In their recipes, the chefs will focus on genuine ingredients, using top quality produce. Each dish will be combined with a local wine, carefully selected by an experienced sommelier from South Tyrol, who will create special and original combinations.
