In Südtirol geht es herzhaft zu: Knuspriges Südtiroler Schüttelbrot mit seinem unverwechselbaren Anisaroma, Südtiroler Schinkenspeck und Kaminwurzn geben eine rustikale Brotzeit ab. Darüber hinaus ist Südtirol ein fruchtbares Anbaugebiet für Obst, vor allem Äpfel.
Aperitivi and glass of wines are the typical Italian way to begin the evening. Try some Alto Adige products including the Speck Alto Adige IGP and local Alto Adige wines for a perfect moment in Bolzano. Photo credit by Frieder Blickle
Speck shares its name with a German pork product, but while German Speck is basically lard (the equivalent to Lardo in Italy), Italian Speck has some similar characteristics to smoked bacon. However unlike American bacon that comes from belly portion of the hog (same as Pancetta), Speck is made from hog legs. Speck originates from the Alto Adige region where it is still a home made process protected by a PGI designation.
