A journey through the flavors of Monte Rosa

food monterosa

The culinary art of the valleys at the foot of Monte Rosa is typically mountainous with high-calorie products as tradition dictates.

Dishes such as polenta concia, topped with Fontina Dop or Toma di Gressoney cheese, lard with chestnuts in honey, Valdostan soup and the typical mocetta sausage are just a few of the offerings from our area that you will find in almost every restaurant.

For several years, mountain cuisine has rediscovered 0-km agri-food products, which are always highly appreciated for their intense flavors that bring to mind ancient scents and tastes of local tradition.
