At 2,275 meters above sea level in South Tyrol, Restaurant AlpiNN – Food Space & Restaurant is home to “Cook the Mountain”, the ethical and sustainable cooking philosophy of the three Michelin-starred chef and Green Star for Sustainability, Norbert Niederkofler.
It is from a deep sharing of values that the collaboration with Denis was born, oriented to the study of leavened products dedicated to the aperitif area, such as focacce and schiacciate. It is in this magical place that Care’s – The ethical Chef Days takes place, a project created by the chef and his partner Paolo Ferretti, for other chefs. During the event, starred and non-starred chefs from around the world as well as companies and professionals in the food and wine industry come together with a common goal: taking care of the environment, of the local communities and the rhythm of nature, promoting an ethical and sustainable approach to cooking. An event that alternates moments of debates and discussions with dinners by many hands, proposed by international chefs.
Denis, the only pizza maker invited, participates for the aperitif part, presenting pizzas and focaccias that embrace the fundamental principles of ethics and sustainability, fundamental inspiration of the event.
