Food glos­sary

Where Turin - - DINING - B Y C. Z.

From a gas­tro­nomic view­point, the re­gion of Pied­mont boasts some of Italy's finest, most di­verse tra­di­tional foods. It is there­fore no sur­prise that the world­fa­mous ‘Slow Food' as­so­ci­a­tion, an in­ter­na­tional, non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion com­mit­ted to giv­ing food back its proper value, was born here. It is also here that the Ital­ian Univer­sity of Gas­tro­nomic Sciences, the first, and pos­si­bly only, ‘univer­sity of taste' in the world, was es­tab­lished. The amaz­ing raw ma­te­ri­als of­fered by the Pied­mon­tese re­gion in­clude meat, cheese, wine and truf­fles, and are the ba­sic in­gre­di­ents used to cre­ate de­li­ciously rich, tasty recipes. We've com­piled a list of sev­eral Made in Pied­mont dishes that are ab­so­lute must-tastes.
