Lightly-baked, crunchy rye bread in small format. As a rule, our South Tyrolean Mini-Schüttelbrot is eaten between meals (during a so-called 'Jause' or 'Brotzeit') or rather during a light afternoon meal (the South Tyrolean 'Marende'). It makes of course a perfect accompaniment to wine and beer.
The sweet cream for our butter is won of milk High Puster Valley mountain farms. Genuine, aromatic, tasteful milk. Then we make our butter it. Naturally golden brown, spreadable and extremely soft. It's taste is fresh, creamy and mild.
The South Tyrolean farm bacon is a culinary event of the special kind. An exclusivity, only in tiny amounts available, for gourmets oriented to pleasure to whom among other things also is aware of the great importance of an adequate fat portion. The meat comes pigs who are held appropriate to the species on small-structured South Tyrolean farms and are nourished freely of genetic engineering with especially well-chosen feed. The result are the pigs who prove an especially mellow bacon.
