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.
