The Törggelen is an ancient tradition that takes place from end of September to the begin of December. During the Törggelen, the farmers were used to invite neighbours and offer them their self-produced wine. Nowadays it is possible to taste a savoury South Tyrolean Speck and some Kaminwurzen, which is a smoked sausage produced by the local families or taste some typical dishes of the peasant cuisine of the region.
In all periods of the year, we recommend eating cold cuts like speck, ham, salami, bresaola accompanied by cheese, butter and good bread. The famous South Tyrolian Speck PGI is a type of slightly smoked ham. It is characterized by its aroma, teste and texture. Among the first courses, Schlutzkrapfen are tasty ravioli filled with ricotta and spinach with melted butter and crispy speck.
Also based on spinach are the Spätzle, which are dumplings with butter and sage.
Strudel is a dessert made from South Tyrolean apples, short pastry or puff pastry. It also contains chopped walnuts, raisins, sugar, breadcrumbs, spices, natural flavours, pine nuts, walnuts or almonds and butter. We suggest you also to try delicious dishes accompanied by fruity red and white wines, such as St. Magdalener or Lagrein.
