Courmayeur Mont Blanc will welcome a star-studded line-up of Michelin-starred chefs and sommeliers for another month of culinary excellence, with the third edition of ‘Peak of Taste’ taking place in March 2024. Joining forces with local chefs, Courmayeur Mont Blanc will host a series of events showcasing the very best of Aosta Valley’s produce and Northern Italy’s traditional cuisine.

Situated in the heart of the Italian Alps, Courmayeur is home to luxury accommodations, pristine ski slopes and an array of fine-dining restaurants. Culinary events will take place across the gastronomic resort, and Courmayeur is inviting guests to meet and eat at altitude with some of the most prolific chefs in the region.

Events include cooking classes and demonstrations with Chef Paolo Griffa of Paolo Griffa al Caffè Nazionale who is returning to the resort as a Michelin-star chef. Additional workshops will be led by Chef Ugo Alciati of the fine dining restaurant, Guido Ristorante with further offerings including aperitif tasting at the highest peak in Europe – Punta Helbronner Station in Skyway Monte Bianco – followed by a descent to the Pavillon, which sits at an altitude of 2,173 metres, for light bites by Chef Roberto Valbuzzi, patron of Crotto Valtellina Restaurant. Wine tastings and pairings will also take place throughout at recently opened restaurants with fresh and local ingredients.
