Food is one of the highlights of Piedmontese culture. It would be impossible to describe the region without mentioning recipes that are landmarks of its history and reflect its tradition. Food is culture, but it’s much more, too. Tempting Piedmontese products are second to none: a wide range of “antipasti” (starters), from stuffed vegetables, to vitello tonnato and bagna caoda (typical garlic sauce); fresh hand-made pasta like tajarin and ravioli del plin; more refined meat courses like brasato al Barolo; to finish with, delicious desserts like bunet (chocolate pudding), hazelnut cake or panna cotta.
