La Dolomitica 2018. The Sassongher amongst the protagonists!


Are you ready for an amazing culinary experience in the heart of the Fanes-Senes-Braies Natural Park, in the presence of some of Italy’s best exclusive Chefs?

Ladins Do Cook It Better! La Dolomitica 2018

It’s almost time! The event is scheduled for the  9th of August 2018

This spectacular gastronomic symposium at high altitude, in the Sas Dlacia meadows, this year sees the Hotel Sassongher taking part, with a culinary team led by Massimo Busin, along with other Chefs from the best local establishments. The slogan Ladins do Cook it Better itself foretells the rivalry between the great Chefs participating is set to be fierce, a real race towards excellence for the achievement of a single goal: to offer Guests an opportunity to be part of a thrilling sublime experience, savouring unforgettable flavours amidst one of the most beautiful natural settings in the world.


The Spirit of the La Dolomitica 2018 Event

The setting of the most anticipated culinary event is the Sas Dlacia, which in Ladin means “rock of ice”, a dream location near the Dolomites’ Fanes-Senes-Braies Natural Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This choice was not by chance, it highlighting the strong link to the territory and soul of the Chefs taking part. To share the important relationship with the Dolomites’ nature and mountains in the surrounds, our Guests can delight in savouring dishes whilst seated on blankets spread out on the meadows like a truly opulent picnic.

With our Head Chef leading a team of selected Hotel Sassongher Chefs, we will be involved this year alongside other culinary groups from the best local establishments, for an event also known as Italy’s Greatest Gastronomic Symposium.

Together with 9 other Sas Dlacia Chefs, the Hotel Sassongher Culinary Team – with Massimo Busin at the helm, will work within the fascinating natural setting that has welcomed the previous 3 editions of La Dolomitica, known as the “most starred picnic in Italy”. Val Badia, in fact, now boasts culinary traditions positioned amongst the most distinctive and recognised in the world of Taste, as shown by the Michelin stars awarded to so many of our restaurants, especially due to the search for authenticity and the creativity that proudly unites almost all Ladin folk.
