The dumpling festival is perhaps the best reason to visit St Johann in Tirol in late Summer. Dumplings, beer and oom-pah bands.
If you get a portion with three spinach dumplings on the plate, beware; if you eat all three you may not be able to move for the rest of your ski trip. Drenched in brown butter, spinach dumpling is truly the food of champions.
If it is feeling a little chilly outside Canederli Dumplings, a specialty in the Dolomites, are truly irresistible. This is Paula’s cheese version.
