The Ladin cuisine

There's only one certainty in life: in the Ladin valleys, you'll never stay on an empty stomach. In the kitchens of Val Gardena, Alta Badia and Kronplatz, there's always a pot on the stove and mouth-watering smells that remind of grandmothers. A traditional dish called "Panicia" is a barley soup with vegetables and meat served with slight variants across South Tyrol. But the Ladin cuisine offers far more delicacies: the local dumplings "Bales" , potato dumplings "Gnoch" and fritters filled with spinach and ricotta cheese "Turtres". You can also try a popular dish known as "Grestl", roasted potatoes and veal cut into pieces or "Fortaies", spiral fried pancakes. Besides tasting delicious, the "Jufa", a kind of milk pudding that is traditionally eaten in a pot and with a spoon, is likewise an authentic experience.

Straight from the farm

Would you like a piece of strong-flavored goat cheese? A spicy salami processed in a farm? Or a hand-woven scarf? You will find a wide range of local, high-quality foods and handcrafted articles for daily use and art at the Dolomites Region Alta Badia, as in the rest of South Tyrol. Many producers sell directly from the farm, where you can taste the delicacies and meet the producers

With a bit of luck, you can take a stroll through the village and look over the shoulders of the craftsmen as they create hand-woven textiles or wooden sculptures.
