Grotto

True Tessin gastronomic culture

“Correctly a good roast / counts as one of the good deeds.”  (Wilhelm Busch)


Grotto open only for hotel guest.

The term “Grotto“comes from the Lombardy and describes a culinary cellar.  Here the peasant population had their stockrooms in the past, well protected from the sun.  On feast days people collected in front of the grotto, set up a couple of tables and got salami, ham, cheese, speck and wine from the shady stockroom.  Tessin without its grotto is unimaginable. And the same is the case in the “Cacciatori” as well.
A grotto feast needs the Tessin plate.
