In order to taste a typical dish from the Muggio Valley we recommend you to participate in the Season of Local Dishes in the area of Mendrisiotto which is held every year in this valley between November and December.
The gastronomic compositions offered in the different places (restaurants, grotti, taverns and agritourisms) are based on traditional recipes and ingredients: cazöla (a cabbage dish), roast suckling pig, stewed donkey, pork shin, veal osso buco, stewed chicken and rabbit, polenta and “rustisciada” (filet and beef innards), etc.
The famous fresh cheese produced in the Muggio Valley is always on the menu.
Each person who takes part in the festival also participates in a competition and can win a voucher for a trip! Moreover, in every restaurant there is the chance to win a prize with local products of the Muggio Valley.
