Turin, the first capital of Italy, and one of the most influential cultural centres of the old Europe. City of arts, refined cuisine and mysteries, Turin has been regarded over the years, amongst the others: the home country to Vermouth aperitifs and to the Italian Unification movement, the cradle of the most accomplished chocolate masters, one likely location of the Holy Grail as well as the place where the gates of Hell reside. In this bundle of culture, history and stories, the cuisine of Turin found itself a perfect ground to prosper: as much as in reality so on the tables, abundance and poorness somehow co-existed over the years, influenced by the French finesse and by the local rustic cuisine and outstanding produce. A Turinese dish can taste like heaven on Earth but it most surely leaves you guilty of the cardinal sin of gluttony at every bite.
Using regional ingredients, seasonal British products and our trade mark twist on traditional recipe, let us tempt you with a night in Piedmont.
