Intrepid tastebud adventures await. Courmayeur Mont Blanc, Italy has announced delicious details of the 7th annual Mountain Gourmet Ski Experience, taking place from 12th – 15th March 2020
Ideal for gourmand travellers, the yearly event is a must-try for skiers and foodies alike. Created by Momentum Ski’s Amin Momen and Heston Blumenthal, the experience draws Michelin chefs like a magnet to the world-class Italian resort of Courmayeur Mont Blanc for several days of incredible dining and slope side action.
2020 will be no exception, playing host to three Michelin star chefs, Tom Kerridge, Claude Bosi and renowned local-chef Paolo Griffa.
Announcing a new dinner-only format for Mountain Gourmet Ski Experience 2020, this season’s new flexible set-up will offer dinners only, with accommodation, flights and transfers as potential add-ons to suit different budgets, and a choice of 2 to 5 star hotel accommodation.
Tom Kerridge, who holds 2 Michelin stars for The Hand & Flowers as well as a Michelin star for The Coach, both in Marlow, will be joining the event for his second time on skis, along with friend Claude Bosi, who holds 2 Michelin stars at London’s Bibendum, to dream up more Michelin starred mountain feasts.
