Farina Bóna, the “good flour”, is a unique product obtained from roasted corn. Its deep-rooted origins take us to a spectacular, remote valley in the back of Lake Maggiore. Our cooking class is a real celebration of its humble origins and of its fame and importance in the gastronomic traditions of Ticino, today.
We visit the original stone mill, where passionate and dedicated locals still produce farina bòna. We witness the various steps and have a tasting of several products, including beer, made with this special flour, and enjoy some local wine. We visit an artisanal studio, where a group of local women carry down the ancient tradition of weaving straw, turning it into a real art.
Our cooking class is the grand finale. Under the guidance of a chef, we prepare a meal where the main protagonist is farina bóna. The dishes will depend on the season. All rigorously paired with local wine.
A truly unique experience. Opportunity to buy the product and cook the special dishes at home.
