From January 26 to 28, the Italian resort of Courmayeur hosts an amazing gourmet event: Taste of Courmayeur where people have the chance to sample the best delicacies from the Aosta Valley and Italy as a whole with a beautifully scenic backdrop, enhanced by lights and music.
For this year’s event at the Courmayeur Mountain Sport Center, six renowned chefs will prepare their most refined and delicious dishes in a special tasting menu. The 24-course menu will be accompanied by a rich programme of activities – it’s a gourmet dream for foodies, a great festive occasion, and a unique opportunity to attend food and wine tastings and workshops with top chefs. The three-day festival aims to make haute cuisine accessible to everyone – each of the 24 dishes is priced between €6 and €10, with good-quality wine and beer as an accompaniment – and there’s also a kids’ area for young foodies.
Each day will be divided into two sessions, offering unique and varied gourmet experiences. The lunch session (12 noon to 4pm) has an amazing line-up of fun and educational activities, revealing the secrets that great chefs use in their own kitchens.
Then at the dinner session (6.30pm to midnight), the Courmayeur Mountain Sport Center is transformed into a lively après-ski destination at high altitude, with three party nights featuring fine food, DJ sets and a classic sense of style.
This is the perfect occasion to combine this great gastronomic heaven event and Courmayeur as a city renowned for its skiing with the thrill of riding the resort’s varied slopes at the foot of Mont Blanc.
The festival runs from January 26 to 28, 2018. Visit tasteofcourmayeur.it to book your ticket now.
