Barolo wine tasting Barolo wine tasting

The region of Piemonte isn't just wine, truffles and chocolate. It offers a unique collection of dishes and recipes refelcting its history and traditions.

From stuffed vegetables to 'vitello tonnato' and 'bagna caoda'. Fresh pasta like 'tajarin' and 'ravioli del plin' to refined meat courses such as 'brasato al Barolo' and desserts such as 'bunet' and hazelnut cake.

The 2 hands-on cooking lesson options below proposed by Tasting Tours will help you experience the classical regional cuisine of Piedmont.

Both are held in a local restaurant in the Barolo wine area where you will be welcomed by chef Maria Cristina and her staff. All the ingredients and vegetables come from Langhe area

After your class you will take lunch in the restaurant’s beautiful dining room overlooking the Barolo producing hills and, of course, enjoying some great wines!
