Fresh liv­ing

Italy’s Pi­azza Duomo De­serves the Praise that Is show­ered upon It for Its clever use of fresh In­gre­di­ents

Virtuozity - - Fine Dining -

Famed the world over for its truf­fles and el­e­gant wines, alba is the foodie cap­i­tal of Pied­mont—a re­gion that it­self lays claim to be­ing the gas­tro­nomic heart­land of Italy—and is, there­fore, the per­fect lo­ca­tion for en­rico Crippa’s chic mod­ern Ital­ian res­tau­rant.

Pi­azza duomo and la Pi­ola restau­rants opened in the old town cen­tre of the cap­i­tal of the langhe, alba, in may 2005. a sin­gle lo­ca­tion for two culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ences which, though very dif­fer­ent, share an ap­proach to re­search and qual­ity.

the cen­tral fig­ures in­volved were the Ceretto fam­ily, well-known Pied­mon­tese wine en­trepreneurs and ar­dent pro­mot­ers of the lo­cal food and wine re­sources, and Crippa. rather than a com­pe­ti­tion be­tween la Pi­ola’s tra­di­tional Pied­mon­tese style of cook­ing and the re­fined cre­ativ­ity of Pi­azza duomo, the project set out to high­light and ed­u­cate in the cul­ture of good liv­ing, eat­ing and drink­ing that has made our re­gion unique. this choice has been re­warded with suc­cess in just a few years, with Pi­azza duomo now be­ing a cult ad­dress for gourmets and any­one who loves food that’s new, yet never ba­nal.
