OUTDOOR ACTIVITY & GOURMET

Cortina360 with its Mountain Guides partners with two renowned chefs in the area to offer its clients unique experiences that combine nature with food ...giving you high altitude thrills.

Get to know our chefs

RESTAURANT DA AURELIO
Chef Luigi Da Riz

The desire to combine food and health emerges clearly from both the dishes prepared by his father Aurelio, who opened the restaurant in 1970, and those of his son Gigi. Aurelio Diaz has always been aware of the importance of nature as a source of health remedies. "Although he cooked in the classic Italian tradition, he always put in some typical herb from up here," Mr. Dariz says of his father. After attending Academy Etoile in Venice and working in renowned restaurants in Italy such as I Carracci in Bologna and for a while in England, Mr. Dariz Jr. returned home to the province of Belluno. It was then that he decided to follow his own path. Today the restaurant has a dual nature: a great base for hiking in the Dolomites and a gourmet's paradise. Gigi curates his dishes and tasting menus with a view to experimentation as continuous improvement, while respecting the nature of the product and the valuable teachings of his father Aurelio.

EL BRITE DE LARIETO RESTAURANT
Chef Riccardo Gaspari

Great character, talented and humble at the same time: today we meet Riccardo Gaspari, class of 1985, chef and owner of the SanBrite restaurant in Cortina d'Ampezzo. Born in San Candido and growing up surrounded by nature, the air at home is pure, crisp, there he cultivates his passion: skiing, which will lead him to compete in the European Cup in the fast disciplines. From a very young age he has been helping his family in the farm he owns: a structure taken over in 2004 and refurbished, El Brite de Larieto. Coming back from an important experience in Osteria Francescana together with Massimo Bottura, it was in 2017 that he opened SanBrite, of which he has the reins together with his wife Ludovica. In 2021 he also received the important recognition of Michelin Star. His cuisine is regenerative (as he likes to call it), authentic, sustainable, made of great attention and love for the raw material.
