Stale bread, some cheese and a few other ingredients: canederli are a great example of how simple products can become a very tasty dish.

In old times, Cortina’s land didn’t provide all the fresh vegetables of other, warmer areas of Italy. This is one of the reasons why the local cuisine is based on poor but genuine cooking, making the most of basic ingredients.

Once a dish of leftovers, today the canederli are considered a local delicacy and can be found in virtually all of Cortina’s mountain huts as well as in some of its most elegant restaurants.
