Food and Agricultural products

The characteristic of the typical products of the province of Belluno is their variety. Through the high lands of Belluno, which can boast a close relationship with Austria in the use of certain ingredients, to Valbelluna, Alpago and Feltre that instead are more influenced by the proximity to Venice.

Belluno's cuisine is a great mix of strong mountain flavors and lighter tastes. The local cooking tradition is linked to the wild and half-wild cattle and sheep breeding, the main economic activity. Pastìn (sausage with spices and aromas generally fried or grilled), Alpagota Lamb or Lamon sheep and excellent cheeses produced in alpine huts or dairies are just some of the delicious dishes that you can enjoy in the Belluno area.

The influences and contaminations have enriched the dishes which are made with local food products and can boast IGP (P.G.I.-Protected Geographic Indication) and DOP (PDO – Protected Denomination of Origin) marks.
In recent years numerous farmers have recovered native varieties to prevent their disappearance and facilitate their spread, knowing that good food comes from a good land. Among these products, the Lamon bean or Cesiomaggiore Potato but also Pom Prussian apple or Feltre Walnut.

There are many restaurants, agriturs or mountain refuges where you can enjoy local dishes, made by skilled chefs using simple raw materials. Just think of “polenta”, once daily food which is eaten with Schiz cheese (melted cheese), pastin or game.
From delicious first courses accompanied with wine or beer locally produced, to grappa with herbs and berries, Belluno's traditional cooking is a great mix of rustic flavors.
