"NOTHING IN NATURE IS WITHOUT REASON' - Leonardo da Vinci -
The menus of the Grand Hotel Castrocaro Long Life Formula® are complete in that they are designed both for those who want to taste the typical local dishes and immerse themselves in the authentic and strong flavours of Romagna, and for those who are curious to try a good but healthier way of eating without upsetting their eating habits. However, for the preparation of all menus, the chef follows the dietary principles of the Long Life Formula® method:
COOKING METHODS We favour cooking methods that minimise alteration of food flavour, limit the loss of nutrients and that contain as little fat as possible.
BREAKFAST A healthy breakfast is the best way to start your day. This is why our morning menu included both dishes that appeal to the palate and products that are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, proteins and nutrients – which boost our health, give our body the strength and energy it needs during the day and help it fight off external threats, such as viruses, bacteria, stress and pollution.
HERBAL TEAS AND INFUSIONS Let us take you on a journey through the Italian realm of teas, herbal teas and infusions: “Le Vie del Tè”. “What does tea represent to me? ... The scent of a faraway land, the echo of Ulysses’ journey, the man’s desire.”
ALFREDO CARRAI In 1961 Alfredo Carrai founded “Le Vie del Tè”. He was the first to introduce Italians to the culture of tea, which at the time was virtually unknown in the country.
DESSERTS Our goal is to serve desserts that appeal to the eye and to the palate and, at the same time, are in line with our principles. A tasty dessert doesn’t necessarily have to be bad for your health.
