Holidays dedicated to gastronomy
Delicious food, fine wines and inviting restaurants in harmony with nature and tradition await you in Alta Badia
In South Tyrol, gastronomy is held dear. Gourmets regard the Dolomite region of Alta Badia as the South Tyrol's model region when it comes to good food.
Particularly noteworthy is the renowned restaurant La Stüa de Michil, under the leadership of chef Simone Cantafio, which proudly holds a coveted Michelin star. The award acknowledges the exceptional quality and creativity of the dishes prepared here with passion and finesse.
Good food and sophisticated lifestyles show many faces in Alta Badia. For some, it's the cosy mountain huts, the rustic farms or the traditional Ladin food in the charming guest houses. Others, however, love the elegant ambience of the gourmet restaurants. Whatever your preference, in Alta Badia we cook with passion and love and above all with great respect for customs and tradition. This combination, which is in great demand today, has been cultivated in Alta Badia for years.
In the starred restaurant, in small inns and welcoming restaurants, in rustic farms and cosy huts, everywhere the saying goes: cook with fresh South Tyrolean products. Speck, mountain herbs, meat and dairy products constitute the basis of many recipes and the foundation for modern creations. Short delivery routes ensure freshness and quality of the produce.
The typical cuisine of Alta Badia has its roots in the farmhouse cooking of our grandmothers. If you would like to put yourself to the test in the preparation of some typical Ladin recipes, make a reservation for a cooking class held on a typical farm in the valley. Reservations can be made on site at the offices of the Alta Badia tourism cooperative.
Alta Badia, the gourmet destination par excellence in South Tyrol, is rich in gastronomic initiatives that enthuse tourists and locals alike with its excellent cuisine and fine wines. Examples are the initiatives 'A taste for skiing', offered in winter, and 'Peaks of gastronomy', organised in summer. These initiatives combine good cuisine with art, nature, culture and sport - the special features of Alta Badia.
