This land of lakes, hills, forests, and castles is protected by the Serra Morenica, one of the largest morainic hills in the world. Here the vineyards enjoy the sweetness of its microclimate, producing excellent wines including the Carema Nebbiolo and the Caluso Erbaluce. The Canavese cuisine has distinct flavors including cured meats and Alpine pasture cheeses, “Capònet” rolls of savoy cabbage with meat, stuffed onions with amaretto, “Ajucche” wild herb soup served with bread, and “Bagna Caòda”; the distinguished anchovy sauce served as a dip for crudités. All of this is just a taste of what awaits you on this tour. Detailed Itinerary: Noon: Guided tour in one of the castles of the Canavese region.

Turin: 3-Hour Gastronomy Tour

8. 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.

What people are saying about Turin

A beautiful sensory journey to discover the delicacies of Turin and Piedmont in the field of sweets .. it was 1 perfect combination of historical anecdotes with tastings of 7 characteristic sweets, a way to discover the city a little alternative but no less important or minor value .. the guide, Mirella, very competent .. she was able to convey her knowledge to us in a very engaging and not boring way, absolutely interesting and also good at constantly asking us if we had understood what she was telling us and if we were fine and that was all ok I absolutely recommend it, even the partners who have made themselves available to explain their history to us a little and "offer" their products

Fantastic tour around Turin at night visiting places we would have walked straight past. Carolina is a local and took us around Turin like we were old friends. She was full of relaxed information about the history, food and wine of the area. My daughter and I had a great experience tasting traditional Piedmontese fare and were appreciative of the other recommendations for places to go to eat and drink for the remainder of our stay in Turin.

The morning exceeded my expectations: as much as I've been interested in wine and wines for at least twenty years, I still learned a lot about the Martini world from a good and knowledgeable guide. The tour was long, the exhibition rich and even the final tasting was completely satisfying: excellent products presented with skill and lightness. Recommended, definitely!

The experience was excellent. A real cooking class with an Italian family. Nothing like a normal class in a place, but rather cooking in the host house. The hosts were incredible nice and despite the fact this is not their regular work, they seemed well prepared and gave us a wonderful time together.

Interessante scoperta del mondo Martini, esperienza da consigliare a tutti, appassionati e non! Mi raccomando di terminare la visita con un cocktail e giretto nello shop
