Which are traditional dishes of Alta Badia?
Traditional Ladin cuisine can boast many tasty dishes which combine flavors and aromas of mountain products with Tyrolean and Ladin tradition. The most famous dishes are the canederli (bread dumplings), the barley soup with homemade “tutres” (ricotta cheese, spinach or sauerkraut pancakes), the spätzle (small spinach dumplings) and the cajincì (spinach and ricotta cheese filled pasta with parmesan and butter).

South Tyrol has also tasty desserts, first of all the traditional Apple Strudel with warm vanilla sauce. We advise you to try also the Kaiserschmarren: a kind of pancake served with icing sugar and cranberry jam.

And finally, to perfectly end this wonderful meal, taste a typical homemade grappa, flavored with mountain herbs or mixed berries.
