turinepi20 week 2

Turin Epicurean Capital normally lasts 3 days in Turin but covid19 kept most of our guests at home and so we met them virtually online and these are our week 2 chats.


  • As our guests loved the turinepi19 cheese tasting at Latteria Bera, we had planned another one this year too. Given the situation, we decided to do a virtual one where Chiara presented 7 cheeses, mostly produced in Piedmont, the vegan gianduiotti and cremini chocolates you can buy in her historic dairy and naturally, her famous whipped cream 😋
This virtual tasting is fully in Italian and a second one, in English, will follow in the next few days!






  • Our old time friends: Antonio De Vecchi and Daniele Taverna of Gelato Village in Leicester, UK, shared their gelato philosophy and mission. They also explained how their gelato is still very much linked to Italy for the choice of their ingredients and the very small batches they make.
If you have always wondered what the difference is between gelato and ice-cream and if you love both, this video chat is a must!





  • Paola aka The Tiny Italian closed this second week of our virtual turinepi20 edition with some bubbles! She shared how after a rewarding career in fashion, she actually found herself in cooking healthy Italian meals and entertaining people.  If you think covid19 is preventing you from any kind of fun and party... you MUST try one of her her zoom events! 
You won't regret it!!

turinepi20 week 1

Here are the first turinepi20 online chats:

  • Renata Haidle - a very talented travel photographer who specializes about France but deeply loves Italy - opened this 7th virtual edition.
During her chat we talked about virtually everything from food to future travel plans!





  • Lisa Brancatisano of This Tuscan Life shared her job, how she moved to Italy following her passion for fashion and then transitioned to sharing her newly found Tuscan life with tourists and visitors from all around the world.




  • Elfin Waters of All About Italian on Instagram closed the first week of our online chats. As her Instagram account is designed for the lovers of Italian as a foreign language, our main topic was how to keep in touch with Italy especially now that many people can't travel over and experience Italy first hand.
This chat is fully in Italian!





Turin Epicurean Capital aims to expand the local exposure through the network of our online friends: professionals in many and varied fields that span from food to travel, via fashion and Italian language. In this covid19 uncertainty, being supported by technology does bring a partial relief making is 7th edition very interesting and engaging!
