The defensive country residence dated 1650, former country house of the Cavenago’s Count is one of the most ancient building of the municipality of Ghemme; The Farm Holidays is made by three rooms severely maintained at the original state, featuring wide fireplaces, floors made by ancient fired brick and wooden coffered ceiling.
In such background of the times gone by, we suggest our Menus that change according to the season, since that they are related to the output of our fruit and vegetables concern..
Cavenago’s specialities are :
Baked pears with Gorgonzola cream
“Rustiscion”(rustic pie with cole and potatoes),
Peppers with Bagna Cauda cream,
Ghemme tradition Paniscia,
braised meat with Ghemme (wine)
and meat coming from our courtyard breeding of course
(goose, duck, rabbit, hen and guinea-hen).
The raw materials employed in our cooking that don’t belong to our production like rice, cheese, wine and beef are directly purchased from local farms so to have quality and freshness guarantee as well as local products.
Combined with our dishes you can taste wines coming from the esteemed local wineries like Ghemme DOCG and Gattinara DOCG.
At the Farm Holidays you can organize wedding banquets (up to 60 people), confirmations, holy communions, baptisms, snacks in the open air and business meetings.
Moreover you can relax walking through a wide panoramic park, visiting crops and farm animals.
