The Taste Experience begins with ham cooked in bread dough served with mustard and horseradish, an appetizer that combines the fragrant meat with the two intensely and distinctively flavored condiments. Horseradish is a real specialty of the area: this wild root is very widespread in Trieste cuisine.
Next, another classic dish of local cuisine. We are talking about the 'jota', a particularly delicious first course made with sauerkraut, potatoes, beans and sausage. A rich dish, usually served on cold winter evenings, when the city is lashed by the bora wind, but can also prepared in a Summer variation. We continue our gastronomic tour with an herb-infused veal roast, offered with a simple but delightful sauce made with celery, carrots and onions and served with roast potatoes. Even this side dish is a true symbol of the local cuisine.
Finally, a typical dessert of Trieste: the Presnitz. The Central European influence is clearly visible here: legend has it, in fact, that this typical dessert was created at the beginning of the nineteenth century, on the occasion of the visit of the Empress of Austria and Hungary, the famous Sissi. It is in her honor that a well-known pastry shop in the city center created this roll of puff pastry filled with walnuts, almonds, figs, prunes and chocolate flakes.
