The Aman Venice has appointed the three
Michelin-starred chef, Norbert Niederkofler, as Consultant Chef.
In his role, which he will preside over
alongside his duties as Executive Chef of St. Hubertus at Rosa
Alpina Hotel and Spa, Chef Norbert will collaborate with Executive
Chef of Aman Venice, Dario Ossola, to provide culinary creativity
and flair to the hotelís menus including those of the signature
restaurant Arva, from 10 December 2019.
Renowned for his culinary philosophy ĎCook the
Mountainí, which sees him cooking only with locally grown produce,
drawing inspiration from his mountain surrounds and giving value
to the ingredients in all their parts, Chef Norbert will interpret
his philosophy to the shores of Venice to curate a series of
dishes and menus themed ĎCook the Lagooní.
Chef Norbert will work with Chef Dario to consult with local farmers, fishermen and market traders to source the
freshest seasonal produce from the Rialto Market, Venetian lagoon
and the cityís islands.
Originally from South Tyrol, Chef
Norbertís commitment to only using local ingredients meant
extensive research into the area, striking up close relationships
with the regionís farmers and producers, and a need to be creative
and innovative with ingredients, an approach which quickly gained
notoriety and which led him and St Hubertus to win their third Michelin star in 2017.
