Whether in your own kitchen or in the hotel kitchen: sustainability isn’t a difficult ingredient to add to the food preparation process. Especially we who live in South Tyrol, which is blessed with such a sublime natural landscape, can find countless ways to be environmentally conscious in our kitchens. It often suffices to survey the neighborhood. After all, the closer the provenance is, the more environmentally friendly the sourcing process. It’s not without reason that the members of the Vitalpina Hotels Südtirol group have chosen this philosophy as a guiding principle.
Homemade jam, meat and milk from the farm next door, local fruits and vegetables: that’s by no means all that our Vitalpina Hotels offer during a sustainable holiday in South Tyrol. Every dish we serve our guests is prepared from ingredients that are stocked during the respective season. In the end, products grown out of season in heated greenhouses are ten times more harmful to the climate than those grown outdoors without artificial heat. It is for this reason that strawberries are not served at the breakfast buffet in winter – the nutritional concept of the Vitalpina Hotels is ultimately holistic, and is also interwoven with a great sense of responsibility towards preserving the environment and sustainability for future generations.
We feel sure that you’ll be convinced about our sustainable cooking processes soon after your holiday at one of the Vitalpina Hotels Südtirol begins. Each hotel’s kitchen team sources high-quality natural products locally, creating delicious menus and varied wholesome buffets with specialties ranging from the traditional to the international.
“You are what you eat” – the old proverbs always contain a kernel of truth. A healthy and sustainable diet is vital to holistic wellbeing. We do tend to forget that fact every now and then. But as you enjoy your stay at one of the Vitalpina Hotels, you will soon realize just how much good conscious eating can do for you.
