Family Floriddia does not only cultivate ancient organic grain varieties, it also mills them in the company-own stone mill and processes them into outstanding, wheat-germ containing pasta doughs that are pulled through bronze. We bake bread and focaccia (a flatbread made of leavened dough) twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, which we sell in our company-own BIO SHOP while still warm. Fridays we produce almond, oat, wine and chocolate biscuits. You will find the following in the BIO SHOP: flour, semolina, oats, spelt, noodles, biscuits, jams, pesto sauce, crafted beer and other delicacies.
What is more, we would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone wishing to assist and with the desire to learn to bake biscuits with our baker!
We offer our guests:
The Monday pizza (free in the first week), which can be enjoyed in the peace and quiet of the garden belonging to our apartments, a welcome hamper containing pasta, biscuits, wine and other products, the possibility of taking a look at the mill and the pasta manufactory, where you can see how we manufacture organic flour and pasta of outstanding quality.
Relaxation, hikes, swimming pool as well as warm pizza and warm bread twice a week.
FLAVOUR and HEALTH
Sourdough bread, pizza “in teglia” (literally, “on a baking sheet”), focaccia with rosemary, and breakfast biscuits are baked in a wood-fired oven.
Everything is manufactured with our stone-ground organic flour in our company-own mill. For connoisseurs of organic pasta dough, we produce ancient wheat dough with wheat germ directly in the new pasta manufactory, which is a culinary delight for the taste buds and also suited for people suffering from food intolerances.
