The Slow Food philosophy

Slow Food is a non-profit organisation that preserves agricultural diversity, traditional food production, local culinary traditions, and diversity of flavours, and also supports artisanal food producers and the active cooperation between consumers and producers. It promotes a respectful use of resources for food as well as the preservation of areas and traditions.

Slow Food Travel is a Slow Food project that aims to develop a sustainable travel experience for guests. While food is the main focus, the interaction between agriculture, gastronomy, the hotel industry, trade, and the craft sector is crucial for processing. An important aspect is the communication between farmers, Alpine dairy farmers, shepherds, butchers, bakers, and winegrowers and the chefs who cook their products. The result is a community whose members interact with each other and welcome visitors.

The Presidia in South Tyrol

A Presidium is a project aimed at protecting local and artisanal food and supporting producers. These projects are intended to protect biodiversity, territories, and the knowledge of traditional production methods. There are currently five Presidia in South Tyrol.

Amazement: There is no better way of describing the Dolomites than this feeling. Marvel at their beauty, their boldness, at a masterpiece of nature. It took 270 million years to make it. In the info point you will pass through them in fast motion – up to the present day, when the Dolomites are a "UNESCO World Heritage Site". The story behind that is also told by the exhibition, which entertains and informs visitors. And leaves them with a feeling of amazement, of course.

The architecture:
The rocks, once in the seabed, now build peaks and are inclined, bent, or folded. This story of creation was adopted by Arch. Christa Mair (Studio PLAN_AR- Nals) in the architectural concept of the building and interior design.

The Drockerhof is located at 1300m above sea level. The farm has been owned by the Messner family for over 200 years, who have devoted themselves to breeding the sheep "Villnösser Brillenschaf". This special breed of sheep was accepted into the circle of Slow Food Presidia in 2011. Today, their flock on the farm consists of more than 100 animals, the majority of which spend the summer months on the Alpine pasture, while a few sheep graze part of the farm's own meadow. With their sheep breeding, they make a great contribution to the preservation of a breed of sheep that is threatened with extinction. The Drockerhof is the ideal accommodation with holiday apartments where guests can experience the life cycle on a mountain farm.

Nettle Schlutzkrapfen
Slow Food Travel: the roots of good taste
Ingredients
Pasta:
300g rye flour (Stieflerhof Slow Food Travel Partner)
200g type 00 flour
2 eggs (Flitzer free-range eggs)
3 tablespoons sunflower oil
150g water
Salt
Filling:
250g ricotta
150g nettles
50g onion
30g butter
Salt
Pepper
Nutmeg
Preparation

Combine the two types of flour on a work surface, add salt, and make a well in the centre. Mix the eggs, lukewarm water, and oil, pour the mixture into the well in the flour, and then knead to a smooth dough. Cover the dough and leave it to rest for an hour. Finely chop the nettles and brown the onion and garlic in the butter. Add the nettles and then reduce the heat. Remove from the heat and add the ricotta and Parmesan, then season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper and mix well. Roll out the pasta dough into a thin sheet. Use a smooth, round pastry cutter to cut 8cm circles out of the dough. Place the filling at the centre of each circle using a spoon or piping bag. Moisten the edges with water and fold the circles in half to create little half-moon shapes. Press the edges closed with your fingers. Boil the Schlutzkrapfen ravioli in salted water and put them on plates. Sprinkle with Parmesan and chives and serve with melted butter.

Cooking time: 3-4 minutes
