Discovering the flavours of Lake Garda
While staying at our hotel in Malcesine on Lake Garda, you can embark on a tour of the lake which lets you not only admire the surrounding countryside, but also appreciate its culinary treasures. The Lake Garda area boasts a rich, renowned gastronomic tradition that ranges from the production of wine to extra-virgin olive oil.
Lake Garda’s green gold
Lush olive groves grow on the shores of the lake, which yield an oil with a fresh fragrance and light aromatic notes. Malcesine has a long olive-growing tradition: The olive-growers’ consortium was founded in 1946 and the various growers built their own mill for producing Garda DOP oil. The oil from Malcesine, “Garda orientale”, has an intense green colour with soft yellow hues, a fruity fragrance, and a light taste, with a low level of acidity. The quality of the oil is especially high, as the producers still collect the olives by hand directly from the tree, milling and cold-pressing them using millstones, as was the case in years gone by.
Authentic, genuine flavours
At our Hotel Baia Verde, you’ll embark on a culinary journey to discover the flavours and fragrances of Lake Garda. Our menu includes meat supplied by the famous Sartori butcher’s, such as Garronese Veneta and salted beef, as well as traditional local and national fish dishes. Salted beef is a real delicacy: It stands out thanks to the selection of the best cuts of beef, the massaging of the meat during salting, and the skilful mixing of aromas. Salted beef was awarded De.Co. (Denominazione di Origine Comunale) protected status in 2015 and is an exquisite dish that is widely appreciated and has won numerous awards.
With genuine dishes and tastings of fine wines, at our hotel you can embark on a sensory journey that will delight your palate.
