Simple cooking with a distinctive taste, inspired by the fragrances of the mountains. Local and natural products provide the main ingredients and when blended together, they create the traditional dishes of the Alta Valtellina: pizzoccheri, sciatt, and malfatti, plus bresaola, slinziga, polenta taragna, several dishes of wild game, cheeses, bisciöla, and honey. These local specialties blend wonderfully with the wines of the Valtellina and the afterdinner drinks of Bormio - especially Braulio and Taneda.
