Resort Strands Michelin-starred Chefs In Mountains To Cook For Skiiers
What could possibly top skiing in the Alps? Skiing in the Alps while being fed by Michelin-starred chefs, obviously. But there is really an option for people who would rather eat haute cuisine at the ski resort than sad, soggy fries, and The Huffington Post recently sent a writer to check out the Slope Food and Gourmet Ski Safari at Alta Badia in Italy’s Dolomite Mountains to
show off how faaaaaancy skiing gets check out the six chefs they stranded in the mountains to cook.
Essentially, the resort at Alta Badia placed six European chefs, all with Michelin stars, at three different restaurants based in cabins along the ski trails. The vast majority, obviously, are Italian (Lorenzo Cogo, Matteo Vigotti, Arturo Spicocchi, Norbert Niederkofler, and Fabio Cuchelli); also cooking is the infamous television chef John Burton-Race of England. Between then, the six chefs hold six stars. (Niederkofler holds two, leading the other chefs to single him out as the first to be consumed if they should be stranded in the mountains for the winter.)
Surprisingly, the entire package is fairly affordable (dishes were priced between nine and 15 euros), and will run until April. So while everyone there goes and indulges in Michelin-quality tapas, we guess we’ll just sit here in our soggy ski boots and eat industrial-grade chili in the lodge.
