Curiosity: Buckwheat is used very often in mountain cuisine (see famous pizzoccheri), once this was one of the most widespread agricultural cultures in mountain areas and represented a means of sustenance and a food pillar for all "high altitude" populations.
After a period of decline, buckwheat is returning to mountain cuisine thanks to the rediscovery of the flavors of the past.
