The bounty of nature: traditional and innovative

Tasty and prepared with typically genuine products, this is the cuisine of the region of Lugano. You can enjoy it in a grotto – the traditional eatery – with a plate of polenta, risotto, salami, cheeses and a glass of Merlot. But the region is also a land of great chefs: tables finely laid to tempt the world's most demanding gourmets.

Sapori del Ticino a tavola

Enjoy "The flavors of Ticino"

Local dishes, menus and wines in the region's restaurants.

"Sapori del Ticino a tavola" is not a festival but a project whose objective is to enhance the long-term status, every day of the year, of Ticino's food and drink as well as the restaurants using the area's produce to prepare traditional or innovative meals.

The "Sapori del Ticino a tavola" initiative is coordinated by GastroTicino through the Centro di Competenza Agroalimentare [food and drink skills centre] (CCA) supported by the Canton within the framework of a new regional policy. In conjunction with the Ticino Farmers Union and the large-scale retail trade, the project aims to enhance knowledge and use of local produce in restaurants.

In accordance with the "Sapori del Ticino a tavola" ethos, throughout the year, restaurant owners who believe in Ticino's terroir offer one or more dishes and/or a menu (changing according to requirements or the seasons) prepared exclusively with Ticino products. Gourmets can pair these dishes with local wines. In an era in which globalisation is likely to impoverish not only tastes and flavours, but also traditions, "Ticino a Tavola" is the key to enhancing the status of those precious culinary treats which our Canton produces for those eager to discover them.
