When I was happy
In Porretta Terme, your wellness is not only achieved thanks to the healing properties of these extraordinary thermal waters, but also by the culinary tradition of the Apennine area which we proudly bear witness to here at the “Il Bassotto” restaurant in the Hotel Santoli.
The “Il Bassotto” restaurant uses zero-mile products from the Upper Rhine Valley, proposing a menu that particularly reflects the strong bond it has with the local mountains, continuously carrying out culinary research to recover ancient local traditions. Organic flour and eggs, seasonal fruit and vegetables, meat produced in the local Apennine farms are always present on our menu.
Come and try our Osteria (Inn) too, an informal, rustic environment where you can taste unique local specialities.
Slow Food Emilia-Romagna rewarded us by joining the community of the Slow Food Chefs’ Alliance, a result obtained thanks to the fundamental collaboration between restaurant “Il Bassotto” led by the chef Franco and the local producers of our Apennines, a sustainable project for the protection of agri-food biodiversity, for the safeguarding of gastronomic knowledge and local cultures. Let’s start again from the earth, let’s start again from the Apennines.
The Slow Food Alliance is a pact between chefs and small producers to promote good, fair and clean local foods and to save biodiversity. The cooks of the Alliance using the products of farmers, breeders, cheesemakers, fishermen, winegrowers, artisans who produce with passion and respect for the land and their animals every day in their kitchens. On their menus you can find local products, Slow Food Presidia, Ark of Taste products, Earth Markets and Slow Food communities.
