Little herb guide from our gourmet hotel in South Tyrol
The garden of our gourmet hotel in South Tyrol truly is herb heaven! We grow a great deal of local and traditional herbs and we use them to season your meals. We also press them to make the oils we use in our massages and, when dried out, they provide the building with its wonderful, characteristic aroma.
A to Z Herb Guide
Aniseed has many uses, mainly in seasoning, but has medicinal properties too and is used to combat coughs and stomach ache.
Basil is used to season the dishes we prepare for you. Typically Mediterranean meals, such as bruschetta and pasta sauces, are nicely finished off by adding a pinch of fresh basil.
Calendula are used for their medicinal properties and in cosmetic products. The orange-coloured plant promotes wound healing and is, therefore, often used in creams and lotions.
Fennel is a multi-purpose herb. The bulb is used as a vegetable and the seeds are used in seasoning. In addition, fennel can make an excellent tea which is known to help with stomach aches.
Lavender doesn’t just have a pretty colour… it’s also used in a lot of cosmetic products due to its beautiful fragrance.
Lemon balm – fresh and fragrant. Lemon balm leaves can be used to season desserts and are particularly popular in sorbets and ice creams. Plus, syrup for juices can be extracted from them when they’re boiled.
Marjoram is closely related to oregano in terms of flavour and is, therefore, a very versatile ingredient in cooking.
Peppermint is delicious, both as a seasoning in sweet dishes and as a drink. Cold peppermint tea is a highly refreshing thirst quencher in the summer.
Thyme comes from Mediterranean countries. The unmistakeable flavour is characteristic of Mediterranean dishes, yet thyme isn’t just used in cooking. It also has medicinal properties.
Wild garlic is a true herald of spring and is mainly used in cooking. Bread, pasta, noodles and many other delicacies can be made using the leaves, which taste ever so slightly of garlic.
