The gourmet guide to culinary excellence, Michelin, has awarded one star to the Capri restaurant in Zermatt.

The Capri is an Italian restaurant in the Petit Cervin hotel, and only open during the winter months. Chef Pierludovico de Vivo tantalizes the skiers’ palette with a range of ‘newly-inspired’ Mediterranean dishes. And those delicate, innovative creations have now been recognised by Michelin – the restaurant already has 16 Gault Millau points for the quality of its food, which is quite a high rating in these terms. 

Le Petit Cervin is the annexe part of the larger 5-star Mont Cervin Palace, and provides luxury refurbished apartments and suites. The Capri is on the fourth floor.

The award is apparently the first Michelin star for a Zermatt restaurant, although the resort boasts 233 Gault Millau points altogether. So, foodies get a lot of quality dining choice.

This has been brought together in the 2011 edition of the cookery book ‘Zermatt for Gourmets’, which is on sale for SF 89 and available in English. The resort’s best chefs have put together a collection of their favourite recipes for you to recreate your holiday at home – sadly without the magnificent Matterhorn setting (although there are lovely pictures for reflecting on your trip!).
