2016 St. Moritz Gourmet Festival: ‘Yokoso Nippon’ – a cordial welcome to Japan!

‘Japanese cuisine offers an incredibly rich culinary variety that we have the privilege of presenting to our guests in an authentic way from 25th to 29th January 2016 in the Upper Engadine, within the scope of our unequalled event culture’, explained Reto Mathis, President of the event organisation. He is not yet revealing the names of the nine Japanese master chefs from Europe and Japan who will be invited to the Upper Engadine, but here is a short preview of what you can look forward to: ‘Thanks to the very individual, highly distinguished culinary skills of the Japanese master chefs, particularly exciting culinary experiences in Far Eastern haute cuisine await you. The event will take place at an altitude of 1,800 m, facing the snow-covered mountains of the Upper Engadine. Nowhere else in the world can gourmet fans experience anything comparable!’ says Reto Mathis.

With the Japanese master chefs and the equally distinguished local chefs de cuisine of the partner hotels, the 2016 St. Moritz Gourmet Festival will offer epicures, as always, a varied event programme. The Grand Opening at the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains will be the sumptuous start, followed by the individual Gourmet Dîners and the Gourmet Safaris, the legendary Kitchen Party at the Badrutt’s Palace Hotel, as well as tastings, wine occasions and further special events in the partner hotels and event locations. During the Great BMW Gourmet Finale at the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz, all the guest master chefs and local chefs de cuisine together will ensure an exciting culmination to this festival week.

The advance booking of admission tickets for the event will start on 1st December 2015. Current news can be found on our website St. Moritz Gourmet Festival and on Facebook.
