Epicurean Long week-ends in Turin
Turin has a long epicurean tradition boasting the very best ingredients and many renowned brands. Many things recognized as Italian were actually created in Turin: espresso, vermouth, gelato on a stick (like Magnum) and the whole Slow Food movement just to name a few. Moreover, Turin has one of the three urban vineyards in Europe - the most productive one - and a vibrant café life where the aperitivo culture has originated before spreading all over Italy.
Our epicurean long week-ends will make you experience our food and wine scene like a resident and we are pretty sure you will want to come back for more 😎
Program:We will start on Friday with a welcome dinner where we will get to know each other while savoring
some of the seasonal Piedmont specialties and of course, the famous wines.
On Saturday, our mid-morning Turin-style break will mark the end of our walk through the historic city center and the beginning of our visit of the Porta Palazzo market. After lunch, we will have a free afternoon to go shopping or visit a museum, before meeting again for an Italian-style apericena (aperitif + dinner) in one of the royal coffee shops.
Take advantage of this free Saturday night to go to the Opera at Teatro Regio, find your own marvellous Turin restaurant or simply wander around the city center.
Sunday will be devoted to wine with a visit to the urban vineyard and an evening wine tasting paired with Piedmontese cheeses, lunch meats and wine country specialties. Lunch will be in a gourmet restaurant.
Finally, on Monday we will have fun cooking our goodbye lunch during a morning hands-on cooking class where we will learn to make some local traditional dishes
