The Province of Turin lies on the border with France and Val d’Aosta, extending to Pinerolo, the picturesque Val di Susa, the Canavese and the hills to the east and south of the City of Turin.
The area is characterized by its varied landscapes: magnificent alpine resorts, vast pasturelands, woods and large stretches of vineyards.
When in the city of Turin, what immediately strikes the eye are its surroundings, with imposing Alpine peaks that encircle its skyline. The Piedmontese Capital presents itself as a city with a singular charm: emperors traversed it, kingdoms arose in it, and it was thus that power left its indelible marks on it. Turin today is a metropolis that regards its past by looking toward the future, with the ambition of a city that, as a tiny village in the Region of Piedmont, became the capital of both a realm and a nation, only to later become a capital of cars and cinema..and food!
The entire Province of Turin is characterized by strong culinary traditions that govern each course, from starters to desserts. Turin is the home of grissini (bread sticks), vermouth and gianduja chocolates.
Typical dishes are agnolotti del plin, small squares of pasta filled with meat and vegetables and topped with gravy and sage; soups like the tofeja; the rabbit dish coniglio alla canavesana; gigot, meat cooked in a bronze pot; and, of course, bagna caoda,a warm dip served with fresh vegetables.
Other local favorites include cheeses, pinerolese mushrooms, and chestnuts from the Val di Susa.
The tour of gastronomic delights concludes with a wide range of desserts: the famous baci di dama, nocciolini of Chivasso, biscotti della duchessa, the crispy torcetti di Agliè, Andrate e Lanzo, melia pastries, biscuits made with corn flour, amaretti of Castellamonte and, of course, gianduja chocolate, well-known and appreciated around the world.
The bicerin is a delicious drink native Turin made with coffee, chocolate and cream; it pairs perfectly with the bonet, an amaretti and chocolate dessert.
Finally, this area boasts excellent wines, in particular, strong reds: Barbera, Barolo, Nebbiolo and Freisa di Chieri.
