The second stop of The Italian Tour will be in Piedmont.
True to the meaning of its name (foot of the mountain),
Piedmont is a land of mountains, and valleys.
Most of these, as “Le langhe”, are famous for the production
of wines and truffles.
The most typical specialties of the regional cuisine are fondue and bagna cauda, braised beef in Barolo wine, civet of hare and a wide array of cheeses: toma, robiola, bruss, gorgonzola, and sernium,
but also typical desserts as the exquisite gianduiotti chocolates, the crumiri of Casale, the baci di dama and the amaretti cookies.
