From the fields to a Michelin-starred cuisine

For Michelin star chef Norbert Niederkofler, it all starts with respect for nature, the environment and animals, which is why only ingredients that grow here and now are used in his kitchen. The consistent implementation of this philosophy at his St. Hubertus  and AlpiNN restaurants have earned the South Tyrolean three Michelin stars and one green star – and as of July 2022, Hubertus has been rated amongst the “World’s 50 Best Restaurants.”  In his restaurant AlpiNN , on the Kronplatz mountain, his cuisine takes shape in an eye-opening architectural and mountain setting. And a new opening is waiting for you: the Atelier Norbert Niederkofler Moessmer opens July 12, in Bruneck.

His homeland, nature and that which comes from the region have always been central themes of Norbert Niederkofler's work, even during his professional development in New York, Milan and Zurich. For him, South Tyrolean nature is still the best place to switch off, reflect and seek new inspiration. For his CARE’s projects - The ethical Chef Days and Cook the Mountain. In a short interview he expresses his love for South Tyrol.

My favourite places in South Tyrol are...

The Pederü mountain hut in Al Plan/San Vigilio, which reminds him of his stay in the Rocky Mountains in the United States. The Dolomites with its incredibly beautiful and unique natural landscape. And finally, South Tyrol's lakes, especially the Antholzersee lake and the Pragser Wildsee lake  (in spring, autumn and winter).  

Witness how architecture can honour nature...

The best place to see for yourself is the MMM Corones by Reinhold Messner museum planned by Zaha Hadid, which is perfectly integrated into the Alpine landscape. Another great place is my AlpiNN Food Space & Restaurant in the LUMEN building, a new museum for mountain photography at Kronplatz. Here, the ‘Cook the Mountain’ philosophy is expressed by the the interior: Martino Gamper has created a "Living Room" for the mountain using only local materials made by local manufacturers.

For me, South Tyrol is sustainable because...

... it fulfils every prerequisite for becoming the world's leading sustainable mountain destination. The foundation is formed by time-honoured laws for the protection of nature practiced by farms and farmers.

I purchase regional products because...

...I want to know where the food comes from. Only then can I serve it to perfection. Just as importantly, I want to know who is behind the product, which is why I work with about 50 South Tyrolean producers. The selection is large and the contact always direct.”
