The cuisine of Ski amadé
Local and regional
Regional products taste better and are more sustainable than imported foods that were transported across long distances. Based on this philosophy, Ski amadé makes use of its natural circumstances. Where skiers whoosh down the slopes in winter, cows graze on wild herbs and grass in summer. Cheese is made from the fresh and nutritious milk and is later on used in traditional dishes at the huts. A culinary cycle that works perfectly. Especially because people appreciate seasonal and traditional foods from the region.
Local and regional: a promising combination, which is lived year-round in Ski amadé.
