A taste for skiing
When taste is a matter of legàmi - relations
Winter 2023 - 2024
Passionate, charismatic chefs and promoters of ethical and sustainable cuisine: these are the protagonists of the A taste for skiing initiative on the slopes of Alta Badia. The chefs come from various regions of Italy, from north to south and from east to west.
The concept of the initiative remains the same: each of the eparticipating chefs will be assigned to a mountain hut on the slopes of Alta Badia, creating a recipe that will be offered to skiers throughout the winter season.
A taste for skiing, when well-being is a matter of solidarity.
This year, the gastronomic initiative very specifically supported a charity project in favour of the association "La Miglior Vita Possibile".
For every A taste for skiing dish consumed during the winter in one of the eight participating huts, €3 went to a charity for the care of children suffering from incurable or disabled diseases.
In total, more than 6,000 dishes were served and €18,200 was raised for the establishment of the new regional paediatric palliative care centre - children's hospice with responsibility for the Triveneto region.
A symbolic cheque was presented by the representatives of the Alta Badia Tourism Cooperative, Alta Badia Brand, and the huts of the ski area to Stefano Bellon, promoter and coordinator of the initiatives "La Miglior Vita Possibile" at the restaurant Le Calandre of Chef Massimiliano Alajmo in Rubano.
Giulan to the mountain huts who believed in the project and to all those who ordered the dish!
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.
