A taste for skiing
When taste is a matter of legàmi - relations
Legàmi in Italian means connections, ties, bonds and harmony between and among people, places, memories, and values. Legàmi is the drive and desire to share emotions in the absolute freedom that the landscape of the Dolomites offers us all.
This is the basis for the new edition of A taste for skiing, the gastronomy event that has been making the winter season in Alta Badia a gourmet highlight for over ten years. With great chefs that will create their dishes based on these concepts and an idea of hospitality that is always new and inspiring, A taste for skiing aims to be an opportunity to meet in the name of taste, beauty and being together.
The chefs, who take part in the initiative, are each brought together with a "partner hut" from Alta Badia, for which they create a dish that is offered to skiers during the winter season.
This initiative is also connected, and it couldn’t be otherwise, to an important charitable initiative in favour of La Miglior vita possibile and Momo, i.e. organizations supporting paediatric palliative care. Because bonds, in the sense of relations, are at the heart of every feeling.
For each dish of the initiative served in the refuges €3.00 will be donated to the charity associations "La migliore vita possibile" and "Momo", and those who order it will receive tins of biscuits for free made by the chefs and pastry chefs Massimiliano Alajmo, Corrado Assenza, Luigi Biasetto, Luca Cantarin, Leonardo Di Carlo, Ezio Marinato and Luca Rasi.
The Chef's Table
Each mountain hut participating in the gourmet initiative will set a table on the terrace reserved for those who want to try a "Taste for skiing" menu. The menu will be made up of the dish from this year’s event and at least one dish from past editions, representing the history of “A taste for skiing”. Of course, you can choose among the dishes that best suit your culinary tastes. The exclusive experience for those who love the gourmet cuisine and skiing.
To reserve your "A taste for skiing" table, please contact directly the participating mountain hut where you would like to dine.
AL – PINO, THE DOLOMITES COCKTAIL
Barman Thomas Pozzato has created a new cocktail for A taste for skiing initiative, to be enjoyed after plenty of fun on the slopes. Its name says it all: Al-Pino - a salute to the Dolomites and to conviviality, made with gin and pine syrup plus a hint of plum-flavoured balsamic vinegar, apple juice and lemon.
Thiscocktail brings to mind the mountains, the local area and the world of gourmet cuisine, at the same time as being strong, just like the irresistible call of the yeti. The sweet and aromatic flavour contrasts perfectly with the pleasantly sour hint. Enjoy this cocktail in the participating mountain huts.
