Truffles, mushrooms, hazelnuts, cheese, rice… we are mentioning here only some of the specialties from Piedmont and the list could go on forever! These products represent the rich culinary culture that this Italian region has to offer.
The great variety of products of this region stems from the territory. Typical products from Piedmont originate from the soil, the forests, the paddy fields and the mountain pastures scattered around this region. The results are inebriating and unforgettable flavours, which great producers protect with a great deal of passion.
The woods provide porcini mushrooms which are either dried or packed in oil. The Langhe area provides the incredible Piedmont hazelnut, which is crunchy, flavourful and just perfect. These two products are not in the slightest comparable to foreign products.
Our assortment of specialties from Piedmont had to include cheeses, such as the incredible delight that is PDO Castelmagno cheese. There are two versions of this cheese, depending on the production season: the cheese from alpine pasture is produced in the summer time and the mountain cheese is produced in the winter time.
Two words best describe our assortment of Piedmont food: selection and authenticity. We carefully select all of our manufacturers and add products to our selection only if they pass two very strict tests: production must follow very high quality standards and the flavour must be nothing short of extraordinary.
