Because that’s where the good stuff is!
You’ll work up an appetite in the fresh mountain air. And a hike just wouldn’t be complete without stopping off at a rustic inn. And they’re dotted all across the upper mountain reaches. Soups simmer on the cooker while a pork roast or trout caught fresh from the mountain stream spits gently in the oven. The farmer’s wife is surrounded by heaps of bacon, salami, cheese, butter, home-made bread and wooden platters – that’s all you need for a ploughman’s lunch. A pot of creamy sour milk or some chilled buttermilk will give you the strength for the hike home. Mountain cuisine at its best.
