The vegetables of Laghi De.Co.
Tel 0445 749500 (IAT Tonezza del Cimone)
Laghi shares with Posina an exceptional environment of integrity. When looking up, the scenery ranges from the valley floor, with fields cultivated among hedges and thickets, the terraces of the slopes, supported with dry stone walls, especially around the villages. Then, beyond the band of hornbeam and beech trees, open grasslands with alpine meadows and pastures, with the inevitable vegetable gardens at high-altitudes.
The grown products are currently still potatoes, the first pride of the area thanks to a celebrated selection of dumplings, and beans, equally renown, although nowadays produced mainly for self-consumption, with an additional mention of another mountain vegetable, the cabbage, which is the traditional ingredient for the preparation of sauerkraut
