Full description
The gastronomic journey begins in the Piazza Statuto, in the historic center of Turin. Stroll through the narrow streets while learning about the Piedmontese region and culture with the help of a local guide.   Taste gianduiotto, the local ingot-shapped chocolates with an interesting history. Legend has it that the gianduiotto was born as a result of the continental blockade imposed by Napoleon. As cocoa was considered an expensive, luxury good, many chocolatiers in the region began replacing it partly with hazelnuts, abundant in the hills of the region. Sip bicerin, which in Piedmont means "glass," a local non-alcoholic drink which originates from another 18th century drink called bavareisa, composed of coffee, chocolate, and milk cream and served in round, transparent glasses.   Sample vitel tonnè with a glass of wine. The term vitel tonnè comes from the Piedmontese dialect and refers to a meat dish topped with an anchovy sauce. Although the origins of this dish are shrouded in mystery, it is known that anchovies from nearby Liguria were widely used as an alternative to salt, which had prohibitive prices in the Middle Ages.   Last but not least, sample an array of delicious local cheeses, many of them recognized with protected designation of origin (DOP) status.

Treffpunkt war einfach zu finden. Ortskundige nette Führung, hatte gute Detailkenntnisse. Verkostungen waren durchaus gut bemessen, aber auch nicht zu viel so dass man nicht vollgestopft war. Nach Schockolade, Schokokaffe und reichlicher Käseverkostung netter Abschluss mit Vorspeisen und Wein. Sehr zu empfehlen.
