6 local products to bring a piece of Trentino to your own home
Tuesday 6 April 2021
Eating local food, trying traditional products and discovering age honoured recipes, is a fundamental part of every holiday.
We decided to gather some suggestions for a taste of Trentino at any moment during your day. In this way, even if your travel plans are still uncertain and there are a few months to go before summer, you can dream of already being in the Dolomiti Paganella and enjoy the characteristic flavours and aromas of our mountains in your own home, thanks to the e-commerce outlets of our local Alpine farms.
#1 Preserves and Jams
As the best way to start your day we recommend bread, butter, and jam using the preserves and jams from our local Ritorno farm. They cultivate blackberries, raspberries, black currents, and gooseberries according to organic and biodynamic methods. Just one bite will transport you instantly to Trentino, with the Brenta Dolomites as the backdrop to start your day.
The Rampanelli fruit farm have been growing organic apples since 1989. They also cultivate pears, apricots, and other small fruits and berries. While awaiting the opportunity for a real 0 km breakfast at their farm guesthouse, you can buy their apples and become an expert strudel maker (since by now we have all become home bakers)!
In this time of home-made aperitifs you mustn’t miss a good glass of beer! La Birra del Bosco, based in San Michele, produce seven “animal theme” beers. The ingredients are malt, hops, yeast, and water from the Paganella mountain springs!
#4 Honey and Cheese
It is not much of an aperitif without a tasty accompaniment. The cheeses from the El Ciasel dairy and the many varieties of honey from the Belfort beekepers, who have been active for more than 40 years below the ruins of Spormaggiore Castle, offer a plethora of refined and tasty combinations.
#6 Herbal Teas
What’s the perfect end to every day? A moment of silence and tranquillity enjoying a warm cup of herbal tea. We recommend the teas from the Florandonole farm guesthouse, made from the leaves of lemon balm and peppermint picked every summer in the meadows of Fai della Paganella.
