Stroncone is not only a place worth exploring for its natural beauty and fascinating history but also for its rich culinary tradition that reflects authenticity and love of the land.

With its unique combination of authentic taste and culinary traditions rooted in the land, this small Umbrian village wins the hearts and palates of anyone who has the pleasure of discovering its hidden secrets.

The Stroncone area boasts a centuries-old olive-growing history and so it is no surprise that it is an integral part of the renowned Umbrian PDO Extra Virgin Olive Oil Route. The olive groves that dot the landscape not only decorate the view with their beauty but also produce an intense-tasting oil that is a real treat for the palate.

But it is not only oil that makes Stroncone's gastronomic offerings unique. Local tradition is rich in products coming from the mountains and their pristine environments. Game, lamb, homemade cheeses, mushrooms, truffles and delicious chestnut honey are just some of the delights that can be enjoyed here. In particular, the centuries-old chestnut groves of Cimitelle give the highest quality chestnuts, loved and appreciated by connoisseurs all over the world.

No meal in Stroncone is complete without Stroncone Bread, a homemade product that embodies the authenticity and history of the region. Made with a careful selection of flours and naturally leavened, this bread is baked in a wood-fired oven according to ancient recipes handed down from generation to generation. Its rich, fragrant flavour makes it perfect to go with local sauces, cured meats and cheeses, so as to complete an unforgettable dining experience.

On the table in Stroncone, ciriole and pappardelle are the undisputed stars, accompanied by delicious sauces or local truffles, which give them a unique and unmistakable flavour. These dishes, prepared with fresh and genuine ingredients, represent the heart of traditional Umbrian cuisine and embody the love and passion for high-quality food.
