Garfagnana has three Slow Food specialities: Bazzone prosciutto; an aromatic prosciutto with a scent of moss and chestnuts, obtained from local pigs, reared in a semi-wild state, Biroldo, a special sanguinaccio, prepared with pig’s head, wild fennel, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and star anise, Potato Bread, made of wheat flour and boiled potatoes, a perfect match to go along with the cured meats of the Serchio Valley.
