Polish Your Crows!

Turin has always distinguished itself for its amazing wines and traditional local ingredients: chocolate, white truffles, rice, cured meats, braised meats, hazelnuts, cheeses and wines!
Since its early royal days - over 800 years ago! - the local cuisine has been characterized by the authentic flavors of its land, the rich aromas of its products and simple preparations of its population, in contrast with the highly refined aristocratic taste of the Savoy court.
After almost 200 years since when Turin was the very first Italian capital, the foodie culture is still embedded in the local lifestyle and all our many famous local products and brands show it. 

Located in Piedmont, NW Italy - aka the Burgundy of Italy - today, Turin is the Italian capital of good (read high quality and organic) food, that’s why the Slow Food biyearly Salone del Gusto and the Terra Madre convention (aka the food U.N.) take place here. 
Turin was also the city of choice for the very first Eataly store and, always here, you can find the largest outdoor market in Europe: Mercato di Porta Palazzo or the Turin’s kitchen, because the whole city shops here on a daily basis.

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.
