Turin: 3-Hour Gastronomy Tour

4. Turin: 3-Hour Gastronomy Tour

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.

I recommend having this experience as a first activity in Turin so as to immediately have an idea of the streets, directions, direction and architecture of the buildings and to be able to know where to return for further dinners and lunches. The guide Luisa we had was special because she also gave us an overview of the city as we walked around and gave us useful tips for the following days. Congratulations to Luisa and thanks for the experience!

My mom and I had an amazing time on the GOURMET FOOD TOUR for TORINO. Our guide was Fabio and he was great! He even graciously waited for us since our train was delayed to Torino. He happily answered our questions regarding the food, history and culture of Torino. We would GLADLY take a tour with Fabio again. His passion for food and history is astounding!

It was a pleasant two hours spent in the company of a local guide who was able to explain the history of the dishes we tasted, without her we would never have found these fantastic places! Thanks

Our guide Aleksandra was great. She brought us to restaurants that served delicious dishes. Restaurants that we would not normally have found ourselves. More than worth it!
