Giardino Mountain participates in the 25th St. Moritz Gourmet Festival 2018 with Chef Jacob Jan Boerma

Giardino Mountain, located in Champfèr-St. Moritz will once again be taking part in the St. Moritz Gourmet Festival, to be held from Friday, 12th January until Saturday, 20th January 2018. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the festival has an exciting new format packed with epicurean events. 

 
 
Guests’ experience at Giardino Mountain begins on Saturday, 13th January where Chef Rolf Fliegauf will be hosting a deliciously casual Tavolata in the two Michelin-starred Ecco St. Moritz. Diners can expect to savour delights such as Norway scallop, Goose liver from Landes and Red deep-water prawn.
 
 
Prior to this event, The Grand Julius Baer Opening will be held on Friday, 12th January in the festive setting of the Kulm Hotel, St. Moritz. Throughout the evening, five celebrity chefs together with executive chefs of all partnering hotels, will indulge guests by serving tasters of their gastronomical skills, prepared on “gourmet islands”.  Guests will also have the opportunity to interact with the chefs, all while supping the finest bubbly and grape. 
 
 
As a hospitality partner, Giardino Mountain is offering special packages for travellers who’re keen to attend the festival. For CHF 960 per person, guests get two nights in a double room including breakfast, tickets for the opening event and the Ecco Tavolata experience. 
 
 
From 16th to 18th January, the Power Retreat will be inviting Netherland’s highly-acclaimed Chef Jacob Jan Boerma. Renowned for his use of seasonal and regional products, he is the proud founder and owner of the three-Michelin starred Restaurant de Leest. Chef Boerma is a master of classical haute cuisine and yet experimental with new methods, ingredients and aromas. Alongside top awards from Michelin, he was chosen as one of the 50 best chefs in the world (Le Chef). He will demonstrate his extraordinary cookery style alongside Giardino’s own exemplary chefs, Michel Hojac and Rolf Fliegauf. 
 
 
Special events and menu/grape tastings will further enhance the festival programme. At the midpoint of the festival (Tuesday, 16th January), a Kitchen Party will take place at the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel. All ten guest chefs will be at the stove to spoil the guests in the luxury hotel’s canteen kitchen, before the first group of chefs bid goodbye to the Upper Engadine. The five newly arrived master chefs will take over culinary command for the days to come.
 
 
To end on a high note, Giardino Mountain will be hosting a Gourmet Dîner on Wednesday, 17th January, where gourmands can enjoy signature dishes prepared by Chef Boerma, along with a drinks reception. 
 
 
The Gourmet Safari experience is also a part of the festival and it involves six popular culinary discovery tours with a total of 12 trails - all leading to the Chef’s Table created by guest chefs.  
 
For those looking to experience the Gourmet Dîner, Kitchen Party and Gourmet Safari, packages at Giardino Mountain start at CHF 1,730 per person in a double room. www.giardino-mountain.ch

About St. Moritz Gourmet Festival:
 
 
Almost for a quarter of a century, the St. Moritz Gourmet Festival has gained cult character throughout the world. Over the last 24 years, almost 80,000 gourmet food lovers have travelled to the Upper Engadine, in order to be spoilt in the festival partner hotels and event locations by nearly 200 international master chefs from more than 30 different nations. However, the focus is not on competition, but on collegial cooperation between famous star-crowned chefs from all over the world and equally highly distinguished chefs de cuisine from our partner hotels. The aim, challenge and stimulus for all involved in the St. Moritz Gourmet Festival is mutual inspiration and the creation of great things together, so the guests can savour culinary highlights for all the senses. Since first being held in 1994, the festival has been organised by the partner hotels and event locations, who have all joined forces in the St. Moritz Gourmet Festival Association. They are the hosts and provide the stage for the top international celebrity chefs as well as the venues for all the Gourmet Dîners, official and special events. In addition, for the new format the festival can rely in the future on the continuing support of renowned, longstanding sponsors and partners.
