REGIONAL ITALIAN CUISINE - a list of traditional food
During your holidays in Italy you will soon understand that “typical Italian food” exists only for foreign people. Italians are very proud of their own region’s cuisine and when they visit other parts of Italy they are always curious to try traditional local food. We love eating fresh, seasonal products and we like “from farm to fork” food, which means we prefer dishes prepared with locally grown ingredients. While in most tourist destinations Italian traditions have been replaced by standardised menus, in Marostica you can still enjoy the pleasure of eating authentic Veneto food.
THE AUTHENTIC REGIONAL ITALIAN CUISINE- Here you can find a list of some typical regional food we recommend you try during your holidays in Veneto:
- baccalà alla vicentina: stockfish slowly cooked with milk, oil, onion cheese and anchovies
- bigoli con l’anatra: thick spaghetti with duck sauce
- soppressa vicentina: aged salami, often served together with polenta and mushrooms
- Asiago cheese: also used in some lasagna recipes or to prepare sauces for other dishes
- the imbriago (drunk) cheese: cheese aged with grape pomace
- Bastardo and Morlacco: typical cheeses from Mount Grappa, used in many different starters and main courses
- asparagi alla bassanese: white asparagus, served together with a sauce of soft-boiled eggs
It is easy to find restaurants offering menus completely dedicated to a specific local product, from appetizers to dessert, following traditional or innovative recipes. We recommend you try the white asparagus menu (April-May), the cherries menu (May- June) and red lettuce menu (in winter time).
WINES AND GRAPPA TASTING- Within a one hour drive from Marostica there are some famous wine production areas like Prosecco, Amarone, Soave and Valpolicella. While just 10 kms from the hotel there is the town of Breganze, where you can drink and buy Vespaiolo (white wine) and Torcolato (sweet dessert wine) directly in the winery.
Our region is famous in Italy for Spritz, an aperitif made by mixing white wine, aperol and sparkling water. It is also famous for grappa, which the locals drink after their coffee in the same cup!
