Discover authentic culinary traditions, in the rolling hills of Torino and the Langhe region, famed for its white truffles, Barolos and Barbarescos.
A week of discovery following the visions of Slow Food founder Carlo Petrini. We will seek out authentic culinary traditions and the pleasures of the table, in the rolling hills of Torino and the Langhe region, famed for its white truffles, Barolos and Barbarescos. This region, known for its rich delicacies, is for many still an economy of small farms and artisan food producers, whose products and agricultural methods face extinction, and where traditions and quality reign supreme.
Cooking classes with our favorite Nonna (grandmother), wine tastings and visits to award-winning vineyards and the lesser-known gems. Learn the basics of Robiola di Roccaverano DOP cheese, and try your hands at the grape harvest or truffle hunting with a local Trifolau (in season). And of course, there will be plenty of feasting on all the local specialties; Coniglio griglio all’Arneis (grilled rabbit with Arneis wine), vitello tonnato (boiled veal with tuna & caper sauce), brasato al Barolo (Piemontese beef, slow-cooked in Barolo), agnolotti dal plin (tiny ravioli-like pasta filled with meat). And don’t forget the wines: Barbaresco, Barolo, Moscato d’Asti, Dolcetto & Arneis, for a start!
