3-Star Chef Massimo Bottura @ Deer Valley

This one is special. My favorite Italian chef, Massimo Bottura, will be visiting Deer Valley Resort in December for memorable, one-of-a-kind dinners and VIP meet-and-greet reciptions. Here are the details from Deer Valley Resort. 

“The next course in Deer Valley Resort’s Taste of Luxury series features Michelin 3-Star Chef Massimo Bottura for exclusive VIP meet-and-greet receptions and six-course Italian dinners with wine pairings the evenings of December 16, 17 and 18, 2022, in the world-class resort’s Fireside Dining location at Empire Canyon Lodge.”

“We are incredibly grateful to Chef Massimo for traveling from Italy to be the star of our Taste of Luxury events for three consecutive evenings this December,” said Deer Valley Resort Vice President of Food and Beverage Jacob Musyt. “Our culinary and beverage teams are excited to work alongside Chef Massimo and source the highest quality ingredients and curate complementary wine pairings to create an imaginative, robust menu of fine Italian cuisine.”

“An innovator and restaurateur for more than 30 years, Chef Massimo Bottura is one of the world’s most innovative culinary figures. His Michelin 3-Star restaurant, Osteria Francescana in his hometown of Modena, Italy was nominated #1 on The World’s Best 50 Restaurants list in 2016 and again in 2018. He is the author of Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef and founder with his wife of the nonprofit Food for Soul to fight hunger and combat food waste. In 2020, Chef Massimo was appointed Goodwill Ambassador under the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), and Osteria Francescana was awarded the new Michelin Green Star for its commitment against food waste and in favor of a more equitable and sustainable food system.”
