In his AlpiNN restaurant, the three-star chef serves filtered tap water, a sustainable project in line with his culinary philosophy Cook the Mountain
For the South Tyrolean chef Norbert Niederkofler, awarded with three Michelin stars with the restaurant St. Hubertus and founder of the culinary philosophy Cook the Mountain, the biggest challenge of the future is there'water: "It represents the most critical resource of our time," he explained. "We must therefore learn to manage it differently to leave a better world for future generations." And since the chef's idea of cooking is to promote good practices that have a positive socio-economic impact on the entire planet using, for example, local and seasonal resources, with attention to waste and the reuse of waste , the water served at his restaurant AlpiNN Food Space & Restaurant di Marebbe (Bz) is that of the tap.
