Get lost down the rabbit hole in an enchanting land of rolling green hills, misty mountaintops and the sweet surrender of tranquility. Have you reached the Elysian Fields? Almost, you’re in Piemonte. The region’s natural wonder can only be matched by its sumptuous cuisine. It is a feast for the eyes and the stomach. The Piemontesi, deeply rooted in a tradition of fine living and slow food, greet each traveler with generous warmth – smiles that grab you like a cozy hug and the type of charm that can only develop from generations of contentment. The birthplace of both unified Italy and the global Slow Food movement, Piemonte’s industrious spirit has always been tempered by its philosophy that simple but high quality is best. Whether it’s a velvety Dolcetto d’Alba or satisfying ribbons of tajarin con tartufo bianco, Piemonte will leave you no choice but to give in to its calming allure. And of course if you’re still not convinced that slow is better, just bite into the silky richness of a gianduja chocolate and you’ll become a believer.
