Sweet & savoury
Young female farmer Verena is also a talented and passionate cook. A lovely fragrance of freshly baked cakes, biscuits and bread constantly wafts from her kitchen. She attaches great importance to the use of farm produce and fresh ingredients. Every now and then, she makes a traditional South Tyrolean Apfelstrudel, the well-known Buchweizentorte (buckwheat cake) with cranberry jam, an exquisite Sahneroulade (cream roll), the ever so popular Schokoladen-Birnen Blechkuchen (chocolate & pear tray bake) and many other delicacies from the bakery. Savoury bread rolls and salty snacks as an accompaniment to the South Tyrolean Brettlmarende (hearty snack) are also baked and served with our home-made cheese. Verena also enjoys trying out new things, which she then combines with the traditional…
- Farmhouse bread – previously, almost every South Tyrolean farm had its own farmhouse bread baked according to an individual and usually jealously guarded family recipe. This tradition is now being revived at the Triefer Hof. The homemade bread is served at breakfast or with the Marende (hearty snack) and has a strong and flavoursome taste.
- South Tyrolean dumpling – whether made with bacon, cheese, spinach, beetroots, other vegetables, liver or buckwheat, each different type of dumpling at the Triefer Hof is just as popular as the next. Young farmer’s wife Verena gives regular dumpling cooking courses for guests in which you are welcome to take part, thus enabling you to cook a little bit of South Tyrolean tradition for yourself when you get home.
- Homemade cakes and desserts – we use the fresh products available every day on the Hof to conjure up numerous delicious homemade cakes for our guests, as well as the lukewarm South Tyrolean Apfelstrudel that can be enjoyed with a cup of coffee whilst enjoying the marvellous mountain views – or a Kaiserschmarrn with homemade cranberry jam and a glass of fresh milk.
- South Tyrolean Brettlmarende – the traditional “Jause” in South Tyrol, served with Schüttelbrot (a flat, brittle type of bread), cheese, sausage specialities, South Tyrolean bacon, chutneys and pickled vegetables. The traditional way to enjoy it is with a glass of good South Tyrolean red wine or with apple juice.
On request, we serve our guests a hearty South Tyrolean Brettlmarende in our parlour.
- Cheese tasting – As a cheese sommelier, young male farmer Martin invites all the guests to a tasting of a South Tyrolean cheese variety.
