Savouring cross-border culinary delights couldn't be easier

discover la cucina valdostana on skis

Clouds Clouds Clouds

Combine your holiday in Zermatt with gourmet pleasures and cross culinary borders. We are referring to the border between Switzerland and Italy, which runs through the Matterhorn ski paradise.

In the mountain restaurants of the Breuil-Cervina/Valtournenche skiing area you can discover the authentic Italian cuisine of the Val d’Aosta. So: on your skis, get up to Testa Grigia and discover la cucina valdostana.

La Cucina valdostana - just superb!

La cucina valdostana is simple, hearty and down-to-earth. And it isn’t just the Swiss who love it. Have you ever tried fonduta? The Italian version of fondue is made with the regional fondina cheese. And you’ll find motzetta on many menus – that’s dried chamois meat, usually served with rye bread and butter. 

And no meal in Italy would be complete without good wine and a grappa to finish. Accompanied by the traditional hospitality of alpine people, you’ll experience a full measure of pleasure in Val D’Aosta. For example, in the Rifugio delle Guide del Cervino on Plateau Rosa (3'480 m a.s.l.). Or the world-famous Foyer des Guides in Valtournenche.

Tip: Make sure you don’t miss the last cable car to Testa Grigia, so you can get back to the pistes down to Zermatt. Please check the timetable
