Below is an incomplete list of what you will find for breakfast when you wake up, but a lot depends on the season, the number of guests and what I want to prepare.
Breakfast is one of the first steps of the day and also, in my opinion, it is the most important meal. In the last years I have tried to convey to the guests of the b&b my idea of a “perfect” breakfast, first mixing the tourist style with my personal style, then adding/removing something and finally, since last year (2020), the breakfast of the B&B Costiera dei Cech has become vegan.
Below is an incomplete list of what you will find for breakfast when you wake up, but a lot depends on the season, the number of guests and what I want to prepare. In short, the breakfast served in my home reflects and respects the ethics and ideas of those who live in this house, which should then be exactly what is proposed and sought in a Bed and Breakfast.
What do you want to drink?
What do you want to drink? This is the first thing I ask.
Coffee, tea and soy or oat milk are available alternatives.
The coffee is made in a moka pot, so you can enjoy real Italian coffee, Assam tea is good and perfect for breakfast, I get soy milk in the store but I make oat milk.
Bread and jam.
Once upon a time there was Franco, a friend who made an excellent wholewheat bread baked in a wood oven…but then Franco got tired of the mountains so after a short time of commercial bread I began to prepare Chapati and chickpea bread.
The jam that I make with fruits and berries, collected in the wood, is incredible…but I can’t offer it for breakfast, for health reasons (they told me), so you’ll spread a normal jam on the bread!
Cakes and cookies.
I have a long list of vegan cakes and cookies for breakfast and recently I started sharing recipes for these sweets on the B&B blog.
I prepare these sweets using only vegan ingredients and close to the tradition of the place where I live, the Valtellina. Whenever possible I buy local products.
One more coffee?
Yogurt, fruit juices, cereals and fresh fruits are always available and if you drink a tea at the end of your breakfast you can drink also a coffee!
Once upon a time there was a buffet!
Once upon a time there was a buffet, but at this moment (2020/2021) it is no longer possible for obvious health reasons, I am at your disposal to cut another slice of cake.
