No borders – even on your plate
For centuries, people in the triple border region of Slovenia, Austria and Italy have been working together in various areas of life. At a time when national borders were even more strictly defined, nations cooperated with regard to culture. On every second Sunday in September, hikers from Austria, Italy and Slovenia have been meeting at the triple border above Rateče for more than 40 years.
At the initiative of the largest hotelier from Kranjska Gora, HIT Alpinea, they also collaborate in the culinary field. The Dinner of Three Lands is a unique culinary journey where you get to know three countries, three nations and three cultures, which all have a lot in common.
The way to friendship between nations is through food
The Dinner of Three Lands is a story that goes along a sixty-kilometre-long circle. First, you will be greeted with an aperitif in Kranjska Gora, then you will eat a warm appetizer in Tarvisio, while the main dish will be served in Arnoldstein, followed by a dessert in Kranjska Gora.
On this trip you will get to know the typical flavours of the Slovenian Upper Sava River Valley, Austrian Carinthia and Italian Friuli Venezia Giulia with Carnia. Taste the typical Treviso radicchio, Carinthian sourdough bread, the famous Ziljska Valley dry meat delicacies, traditional Friuli cottage cheese and Kanal gnocchi. The traditional Slovenian dessert – potica will give you sweet moments to cherish.
