The legendary Kulm Hotel St. Moritz is pleased to welcome three-star Michelin chef Mauro Colagreco this winter season. Chef Mauro will take over the hotel’s restaurant “the K”. Colagreco, is currently the best chef in the world (according to his peers in the annual Le Chef list), while his restaurant Mirazur in Menton, France holds the top position in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list at present.

“The K by Mauro Colagreco” will open on December 15, just 11 days after the opening of the Kulm Hotel’s winter season on December 4, and will aim to bring the Chef’s innovative creations to St. Moritz. His cuisine is inspired by his roots, his travels and the nature that surrounds him. He has created a style of his own that focuses on his interpretation of the ingredients and in the spectacular combinations of flavors.

His food philosophy is all about fresh ingredients, simplicity, balance of color and bringing out authentic flavors to his cuisine. One of his star ingredients is lemon, which makes anchovy fillets set on fried anchovy skeletons pop and sing, while a dish Colagreco simply calls “Green” combines garden peas, fennel and kiwi fruit in a tribute to fresh produce. Additionally, signature dishes like “Luxus beta vulgaris” aim to combines the everyday with the ultimate luxury by serving salt encrusted beetroot with Oscietre caviar cream.

“We are very pleased to welcome back Mauro Colagreco, one of the most successful chefs in the world, to the hotel,” said General Manager of the Kulm Hotel St. Moritz Heinz E. Hunkeler. “In March 2017, we had the honor of Mauro doing a month-long pop-up to help us launch the Kulm Country Club, but this time around he will be with us for most of the winter season. We are very excited by his plans for “the K” – our guests are in for a treat when they sample the taste explosions on their plates.”

“The K by Mauro Colagreco” will be open for dinner only, from 7PM to 9:30PM, Tuesday to Saturday inclusive. Colagreco will be personally present at the Kulm Hotel on certain dates; otherwise, his Chef de Cuisine Paloma Boitier will be in charge of the kitchen. Chef Boitier is a fellow Argentine who has been working at Mirazur for close to five years; as well as being an essential member of the kitchen team, she is also the restaurant’s in-house artist.
