A holiday in Carinthia is a truly culinary experience

Influenced by the food cultures of three countries – Carinthia, Italy and Slovenia – the Alpe-Adria cuisine principally uses fresh, regional products to create deliciously tasty, healthy dishes that are closely linked to the agricultural year. Among the best-known traditional dishes are Carinthian ‘Käsnudeln’ pasta with an abundance of curd cheese and potatoes and a characteristic mint and chervil note, the Carinthian ‘Kärntna Låxn’ – the lake trout – that slowly grows in the clean mountain waters or even polenta, a dish of boiled corn semolina that is delicious both in sweet and savoury forms.
