Lake Como – Mezzegra – Tremezzina – 54^ Festival of Missoltino

Famous lake shad

Lake Como is well-known both for its wonderful landscapes and for its culinary specialities. In Tremezzina (it is the coastal area of the western branch of Lake Como that goes from Ossuccio to Tremezzo) is celebrated the 54^ Festival of “Missulten”( on dialect).

“The Missoltini” are lake sheds. They are fished especially in Tremezzina because the water is colder in this part of the lake. Its particuliarity is given by the processing technique of the fish.

Once fished the shads, are scaled and gutted and salted for a few days. After this period they are washed and dried to the sun. When they are ready, they will be placed in the famous tolla ( once the barrels were made in wood and were called missolte, from which the name missoltino derives) Once the tolla is completed, alternate layer with leaves of laurel, these delicious fishes can be eaten after a few months.

This event will take place on 24th and 25th of August 2019 at the Mezzegra Municipal Park. Don’t miss this fabulous speciality served with polenta!
