Very popular in South Tyrol is the simple Marende, a typical snack with cold cuts, spreads and black bread.
The so-called Marende is very famous in South Tyrol. Thought to be a light snack, it can also be regarded as a main meal and many people order the Marende at the Törggelen.
Speck bacon is a main part of the Marende. It is seasoned according to typical South Tyrolean recipes and with its intensive taste it is the number 1 on the hit list of many gourmets. The Kaminwurzen sausages, various cheeses and ham can also be found on the plate. Pickled cucumbers and vegetables, horseradish, spreads and hard-boiled eggs are combined with it. Homemade bread, mostly black bread, is the best completion.
The Marende has its most important time especially in autumn, when the farmers gather in the harvest and enjoy the Marende during their well-deserved breaks in the vineyards.
A typical Marende can be found in all taverns and inns during the period of the Törggelen. Enjoy!
