6 Chefs, 24 dishes, 3 days to taste them all. Plus wine tastings, international DJ sets and one “on ice” location right in the heart of the Mont Blanc. Taste of Courmayeur goes on stage from January 26 to 28. And here are all the highlights.

The Courmayeur Mountain Sport Center and its ice skating ring with spectacular inlaid glass windows are all set to welcome Taste of Courmayeur, the enogastronomic festival that will bring the best of Italian cuisine on the slopes of the Mont Blanc.

During the daytime, the free entrance will let everybody enjoy the kaleidoscopic program, from tea tastings to cooking lessons with the guest Chefs.

The Chef Moi series will be the perfect occasion to uncover the secrets of gourmet recipes such as the unusual Risotto with potatoes, lard and sea urchins by Chef Paolo Griffa, or maybe to master some traditional dishes such as the Polenta taragna by Chef Luca Zara.

Aspiring mixologists will also find their heaven at the Cocktail Academy, where the most popular cocktails will meet an icon of the Alpine spirits tradition: the Genepì, a timeless herbal liquor that will be used in dive-bar classics such as Spritz, Negroni and Mojito.

At night, it will be the right moment for the stars to shine. The six guest Chefs will alternate in pairs at the Chef’s Table, entertaining each evening with a 6-course menu paired with award-winning wines.

Friday 26 Chef Filippo Oggioni of the Dandelion restaurant in Courmayeur and Chef Alessandro Buffolino of the Acanto in Milan will open the dances with a menu that will range from the Neapolitan Sfogliatella to the wintry notes of the Risotto with kale, goat robiola cheese and smoked eel.

Saturday 27 Chef Claudio Briganti of La Chaumièr and Chef Eugenio Boer will get in the chair. Their menu based on Deer sirloin and Cinders risotto is already sold out.

Closing in style on Sunday 28, Chef Mateus Coelho of the Albufera restaurant in Milan and Chef Stefano Lorusso from the Hotel Gran Baita in Courmayeur will celebrate the Aosta Valley cuisine with key ingredients such as the Bleu d’Aosta and Pleod’s saffron.

To top it all off – and for the pleasure of the most passionate sommeliers – siding each encounter there’ll be a wine list curated by Vinai Trimani in Roma. A sensorial journey from Valpolicella to the hills of Montalcino, from the shores of Lipari to the slopes of Valdobbiadene. To make all the palates happy.
