Enjoy the delights of South Tyrolean cuisine

While the world is full of delicious treats, some especially mouth-watering local delights wait for you to try in South Tyrol.
Wine, cheese, “speck” bacon, apples, meat, milk, beer, dumplings, delicious pastries like Strauben (similar to American funnel cake), jam, honey, juice and a whole lot more are to be found on the vast list of flavor-filled South Tyrolean specialties. How come that a region as small in scale is known for such a wide range of high-quality products and culinary treats? For one, South Tyrol’s climate is extraordinarily favorable, and the soil is especially fertile, allowing for excellent growth. And – an aspect even far more important than that – the people of South Tyrol love their land and cultivate it with great care, harnessing the great gifts of nature, of which there are plenty to be found here. South Tyroleans truly appreciate these gifts and follow the rhythm of nature defined by the four seasons when farming, planting, sowing, sorting, harvesting, picking and gathering the fruits of the land. They work hard to make their excellent products even better and create the most delicious treats for visitors and locals alike. It goes without saying that the quality of all authentic products of South Tyrol is outstanding and that they are truly filled with nature.
Moreover, South Tyrol is home to several Michelin-starred and other top-notch restaurants recommended in the most renowned culinary guides: 19 restaurants were awarded at least one of the much sought-after Michelin stars in 2015, with South Tyrol thus ranking first among the provinces in Italy.
Of course you do not need to visit one of these star restaurants to enjoy delicious South Tyrolean dishes, as the numerous inns, mountain huts and bistros offer plenty of top-quality delicacies.
And the Josef Mountain Resort is conveniently located right in South Tyrol’s culinary heartland…with loads of yummy treats to look forward to!

5 minutes of wanderlust

At least once a year I am seized by a fit of longing. Usually there’s nothing special triggering it: often it’s only a breath of wind that wafts the fragrance of a memory towards me, or the chirp of a bird which caresses my ear. Sometimes it’s simply the sight of the fir tree outside my window which awakens the wanderlust deep inside me. Then I close my eyes and imagine myself gone – gone to where I am always happiest: Avelengo.
