We too take sometimes for granted our amazing food even though in Turin we are blessed to have access to fresh, local, natural and seasonal food. Artisan producers are virtually everywhere and the food we crave is really just non-Italian specialties we can't replicate in our kitchen, like American bacon and tropical fruit.

We could have talked with Lucia for hours, listening to her explaining how in the end it all boils down to our vulnerability to stress and how the inappropriate cures we received during our early years started us on certain behavioral cycles.
Eating too much or too little, having a voracious sweet tooth or craving savory foods, everything has its reasons in our personal history, how we codified it and how we have re-elaborated it.
Some things can be tracked back to just one individual but others can naturally have more social and cultural roots.
In Italy it makes especially sense as Italians are so protective of their recipes and ingredients and particularly in Piedmont, where people are so food conscious to have founded the Slow Food movement to preserve native crops, traditional recipes, preparation methods and authentic flavors. The very first Eataly was opened in Turin too to allow people to have access to high quality and genuine foods.
Food is nourishment for both out body and soul and Lucia Andriolo shows us how by breaking down each sense and isolating different food experiences we can achieve food awareness.
Lucia Andriolo's sensorial aperitif for Turin Epicurean Capital 2017 is on June 22 at 7pm at Associazione Qubi' in Via Parma 75.
