Culinary Delights

Despite different gastronomic versions elaborated over the centuries, one of the undiscussed keystones remains ‘’Polenta’’. Whether in its ‘’uncia’’ variant enhanced by pasture cheese, sage grass and butter or in its most traditional and simple way, this dish made of corn flour and buckwheat is a must-try accompaniment. From the combination of flavours of the majestic mountains and the products offered by the Lake, another king of the table is Risotto with fillets of perch (Risotto con pesce persico), usually served dipped in flour and browned in butter and sage.
