In addition to the many typical products produced in Ticino, such as wine, beer, grappa, nocino, gazzosa, chestnuts and different types of cheese, Ascona-Locarno is particularly proud to have unique products such as cicitt, farina bòna flour, the only 100% Swiss rice and Vallemaggia pepper. Minestrone alla ticinese (soup), nettle soup, polenta with milk (adored by children), sea trout, alpine cheese, gorgonzola, spezzatino (ragout) or rabbit, tripe, risotto and luganighetta (grilled sausage) as juicy costine or puntine from the grill (spare ribs), amaretti and torta di pane make part of the traditional Ticino cuisine. But in Ascona-Locarno you will also find some absolutely unique gems. For example, the cicitt - long, thin goat sausages from the valleys - and the farna bòna, roasted maize flour from the Onsernone Valley, which are both Slow Food products. But you can also find the only 100% Swiss rice, the famous Vallemaggia pepper or tea from Monte Verità.
