This tour explores the range of cuisine of the Piedmont from home cooks and restaurant cuisine.
We will visit the birthplace of the Slow Food movement and dine in restaurants that reflect the cuisine of the season as much as the region.

We will visit chefs in their kitchens and have cooking classes with seasonal offerings.

What to Expect
This tour is for the person who wants to learn about cooking from local home cooks as well as professional chefs. You will have the opportunity to eat in simple family run trattorie, osterie and restaurants and weather permitting we may have a picnic in the vineyards. You will talk to chefs and visit their kitchens and learn about the culture of the Piemontese cuisine.

We will also visit food purveyors and shop the markets for our cooking classes. There will be wines sampled and wineries toured. Most days we will have one meal in a restaurant and one meal that we cook together with the help of a nonna.
Let's face it the #1 wine reason to come to Piemonte is the grape Nebbiolo. It is one of the few grapes that expresses the microclimate, or terroir, where it is grown, and when it is grown around Barbaresco and Barolo, it becomes something altogether incredible.

We will visit the villages Barolo and Barbaresco and we will taste some of the lesser known, but no less interesting wines; Barbera, Grignolino, Dolcetto and Pelaverga.
