Verona's recipes

Verona has always had a great tradition for good food. In fact, the local noblemen, right from the very beginning, had achieved great fame for their splendid, convivial hospitality and the meals they knew how to offer during memorable receptions. Nowadays, this tradition is in the hands of the restaurant owners and inn-keepers of the province.
They provide an important resource of culinary inspiration, with their choice dishes. Veronese art in the kitchen continues today with the work of "master-chefs", who create or improve on, prepare and "personalize" with a touch of refined good taste, secret receipes or ones that are already famous. Typical dishes: boiled beef with "pearà", sauce (made of bread and pepper), "pastissada de caval", (horsemeat stew), gnocchi (potato dumplings), pasta e fagioli (pasta and beans). Veronese cakes "pandoro di Verona", "natalino" (both are special Christmas cakes), shortbread and "sfogliatine" (special flaky pastry biscuits).

Typical Product

Verona offers its typical products that are exported all over the worid, to its guests. Millions of tourists take advantage of this fact during the summer. There is an even wider range in winter. The numerous advantages go from the widest possible choice to extremely good prices.

D.O.C. wines: (with controlled specifications of origin)

(including Recioto and Amarone, which must not be missed), Valpolicella-Valpantena (with Recioto di Valpolicella-Valpantena), Soave (with Recioto di Soave), Bardolino, Bardolino Novello, Bianco di Custoza, Lugana, Bianco and Rosso Valdadige, Valdadige Schiava, Valdadige Pinot Grigio, Tocai di San Martino della Battaglia and Lessini Durello. You can go to the area where Bardolino and Custoza are produced following "la strada del vino" (the wine road) of Bardolino, of Valpolicella and that of Custoza. The Veronese wines lead the Italian national export of doc wines (about one million hectoliters).

Olive oil:

One of the main features of the landscape around the lake are the olive trees that grow at a height of 300 metres giving to the zone the breathtaking charm that makes of it a beloved place. Lake Garda is the northernmost region in the hemisphere, where olive trees grow and oliveoil is produced. The local oil is in fact one of the best oliveoils thanks to its delicate taste that makes it particularly advisable for fish. Excellent if used uncooked. Farms bound to the oil producers' association are opened to visitors and sell the product directly. Worth to be visited is the oil museum in Cisano, nearby Bardolino, dedicated to the oliveoil production and its ancient tradition.
