    Gastronomia Bignotti: Local cheese in Gargnano

    by oriettaIT Updated Jul 4, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Delicious!!

    Walking the main street in Gargnano we found a "Gastronomia" (delicatessen shop). They had a sign about local produced cheese, we could not help to go check it out. Along with the usual selection of delicatessen (that all look really yummy) they had a selection of maybe ten cheese, all local produced, some made with cow milk some with goat milk. We tried them all and finally decided for a goat's one, the more tanghy tasty one that was our favourite. The price wasnt cheap but reasonable for the excellent product they sell!!

    What to buy: Gargnano special cheese and whatever you can find there!! everything look SOOOO good.

    Most Gardaland attractions offer themed shopping opportunities as well - it's all part of the park experience. You can buy practically anything - toys, clothes, accessories, stationery, craft, gadgets, etc.

    What to pay: It's absolutely up to you - prices are about the same as in the tourist centres of Italy

    As we made our way down the old street of malcesiner towards the harbour we came across this cake shop and simply couldn't resist. The idea for them goes back to 1882 from a baker born in Malcesine, Lake Garda. He formed "balls of snow" with an egg dough, baked it and rolled it in iced sugar and cinnamon. Later on he rolled them in fine chocolates and infuse with luxury ingredients - delicious! They were huge and hence difficult to eat without making a mess!
    Lots of flavours to choose from - mine was champagne and trufffle, Dave's a capuchino..but others included amaretto and cointreau....mmm making my mouth watering again!

    What to buy: Balle di Neve (= Balls of Snow) - choose your favourite:
    Lots of flavours to choose from - mine was champagne and trufffle, Dave's a capuchino..but others included amaretto and cointreau....mmm making my mouth watering again!

    What to pay: 3-4 euros each

    Oil

    inside a Lazise wine shop

    In Lazise there are a couple of shops selling wine, liquor, oil and vinegar.

    We have found some fantastic oils there and our favourite is a lemonscented oil. It tastes wonderful over some fresh tomatos or in a salad and we have not found it here in Germany yet. So this makes a wonderful souvenir.

    Other delicious oils are walnut oil, truffle oil and well, that lemon oil...

    Wine

    wine stall

    Just outside the Campground La Quercia you will find a vinyard - and a stall with the local wines.

    It is very enjoyable to talk to the old man who runs it - and as you can see in the picture, he was very proud to get his picture taken!

    What to buy: We have bought a Bardolino (red wine) there, but kept with our custom to only drink this kind of local wine during our vacation there. The whole atmosphere adds to the great taste - but we were usually disappointed, when we took that wine home with us.

    cheese stall

    On Wednesdays there is the open air market in Lazise. While "my ladies" rather enjoy the clothes and the jewellery, my favourite stall is the cheese stall.

    I love to get a good selection of Parmesano, Peccorino and Padano - and whatever else the padrone recommends....

    hell or paradise?

    Lazise is within walking distance from the campground. When I went to Lazise with my three ladies, I asked myself:
    "Is this hell or paradise".
    MY answer was: "This is hell"
    THEIR answer was: "This is paradise"

    What to buy: Nothing that you can't buy: clothes, jewellery, wine, cheese, postcards, oh, you name it and they have it!
