The program for the Salone del Gusto came in my mail today. This is the
third annual food fest organized by the Slow Food organization which is
based in Bra, Piemonte, Italy. The Salone is being held from Oct 25th
to the 29th in Torino, Italy. Anyone thinking of travelling to this part
of Italy at that time would be well advised to make their reservations
soonest as this fair draws well over a 100,000 visitors.
Many of the restaurants in Piemonte are also participating in the affair. Interestingly, many of the top restaurateurs, chefs etc. are coming from all over Italy to participate and will prepare their Regional/Local cuisine in these participating Piemontese restaurants. Sounds like a marvelous idea to be able to enjoy the food of these wonderful restaurants in one relatively small area. Too, I think the white truffle fair will be held in Alba about the same time.
