Piedmont Recipe for Truffles

Piedmont cooking is, in my experience, the finest of all Italian cooking, and with Italian cooking being as good as it is, that really is something.

For the people of Piedmont eating is one of the great pleasures of life. Food is taken extremely seriously here.

It would be crazy NOT to take this cuisine seriously.

About Piedmont's Cuisine

Piedmont is home to many of the top quality products essential to achieving authentic Italian dishes.

Piedmont’s local produce ranges from the best rice in Europe, through to fantastic mushrooms.

The huge variety of risotto and mushroom recipes in Piedmont bears testimony to this.

Some of the other world class products include the famous truffle from Alba and the renowned hazelnuts.

Piedmont wine is among the best of Italian wines and the grape varieties of found on the Langhe Piedmont wine route are exceptional. Details on the wines can be found here.



Fail to use 100% authentic Italian ingredients though and the results will disappoint.
