24 events, 60 Michelin Stars and some of the best chefs in the world gathered together in Switzerland for a series of exclusive four-hand dinners with Ticinese chefs: more than a month ago the 10th edition of S.Pellegrino Sapori Ticino debuted in the breathtaking Swiss countryside, and after meals prepared by stellar chefs the event closed last Sunday.
To pay our homage to the 2016 edition of S.Pellegrino Sapori Ticino, we've put together a gallery of ten mouth-watering dishes served during the event, all prepared by 3-Michelin-Star chefs: this year the monthlong gastro-fest featured the participation of Thomas Bühner (La Vie, Germany), Massimo Bottura (Osteria Francescana, Italy), Annie Feolde (together with Riccardo Monco and Alessandro Della Tommasina, Enoteca Pinchiorri, Italy), Pascal Barbot (Astrance, France), Niko Romito (Reale Restaurant, Italy), Peter Knogl (Cheval Blanc, Switzerland), Enrico and Roberto Cerea, (Da Vittorio, Italy), Christian Bau (Victor's Fine Dining, Germany), Jonnie Boer (De Librije, The Netherlands) and Eric Pras (Maison Lameloise, France).
The starred chefs worked with local restaurants in the lakeside villages of Lugano, Ascona, Vacallo and Vico Morote.
It's been a great ride so far. We are very much looking forward to all the new adventures Sapori Ticino will bring. Cheers!
