The origin of buckwheat

Buckwheat arrived to Europe from Central Asia thanks to the nomad people.

Since the beginning, it was an important nutritional source for the population living in the mountains, thanks to its high adaptation to low temperatures.

In the northern Italian area called Valtellina buckwheat is cultivated since the XVI century, when it soon became a very important element of the local diet.

This is why a lot of traditional recipes from Valtellina’s tradition contain buckwheat as main ingredient.
