Video: Törggelen in San Genesio

When the leaves change their colour from green to shades of gold and amber, the chestnuts are ready. In San Genesio close to Bolzano, farmers used to gather chestnuts as a food source for the winter months. Nowadays they gather them so their guests can enjoy „Törggelen“. Once a year, there is a so-called „Chestnut Week“ in local hotels and restaurants, where culinary delicacies are served.
