Twenty-five chefs, from starred to emerging, a passionate photographer, breathtaking landscapes and the suggestions of ancient and noble holidays: these are the elements of this book, a sensory journey that combines flavors and atmospheres of lakes and mountains.
The over 50 recipes, with their authentic and unmistakable alpine flavors, are born from the skilful grafting of the creativity of contemporary chefs into the ancient culinary knowledge of lakes and valleys between Italy and Switzerland.
Rustic recipes, such as the inevitable polenta, coexist with others with an unmistakably lake imprint, to precisely convey the genius of the place: on the one hand the authentic mountain, still firmly anchored to traditions, on the other the environment charming of the pre-alpine lakes, the result of international visits that have their roots in the eighteenth-century Grand Tours.
