The gourmet valley in the Dolomites
Three Michelin stars for Norbert Niederkofler, one for Nicola Laera
For several years Alta Badia, the small valley in the heart of the Dolomite UNESCO World Heritage Site, has been crowned as the gourmet destination in the Alps. The small valley occupies a mere 15 square kilometres, but it can boast a grand total of four brightly shining Michelin Stars:
three stars for Norbert Niederkofler from the St. Hubertus restaurant de l'Hotel Rosa Alpina;
one star for Nicola Laera from the La Stüa de Michil restaurant in Hotel La Perla.
The award-winning chefs and restaurateurs have, over the years, served as role models for many young local cooks and have been able to inspire them to try their hand at fine dining in restaurants, hotels and mountain huts.
Top quality food and drink have for years now been one of the main attractions for tourists visiting Alta Badia. The numerous gastronomic awards, above all the Michelin stars, are cause for great pride and are the well-earned prize for hard work and commitment.
If you choose Alta Badia as your holiday destination you can be sure to experience unique culinary delights, whether in gourmet restaurants and in hotels or in inns and mountain huts.
