Piedmont is Italy's gastronomic capital for many reasons. First of all, the "Slow Food" movement has started here, at a small town called Bra, which is an hour's drive away from the region's capital city Turin. This international movement has dedicated itself to the preservation of local food cultures. It is no surprise that Carlo Petrini has kick-started his artisanal market chain of Eataly here in Turin, to provide the world with the best products of Italy. The wine region Langhe in Piedmont is no less than Tuscany, as well. It is also here that the grapes for elegant Barolos and Barbarescos (as well as Moscato d'Asti wines) have been cultivated for centuries. The vineyard landscape of Piedmont is actually under protection as a UNESCO World Heritage and it is a true delight to visit its medieval towns surrounded by rolling hills covered with vineyards. People also flock to the town of Alba during the white-truffle season in October and November. It is also worth going to a truffle hunt with the dogs in the pastoral Piedmont countryside. Here, a compact 3-day itinerary is suggested to explore the cultural and culinary delights Langhe region could offer.
