a tour in the land of the Slow Food movement

At every Slow Food Festival (Fiera del Gusto in Italian) Slow Foodistas gather here to celebrate local, and traditional world cultures, forgotten foods grown with respect and integrity.
If you have never heard about all the above, but you have a curious traveler's stomach, this could be your best bet at discovering an Italian city, far from the maddening crowds !

PLEASE TAKE NOTE that open air markets are open on weekdays only in the morning and on saturdays all day long.
Please take not that having 1024 characters at disposal to describe the tour, not every single place/site/trade that is included in the tour is stated in the itinerary.


My food and market tour starts off with a detailed visit to the a farmers' market where you will discover fresh produce and local products.
The tour continues with a leisurely walk through the baroque architecture of the city center where I will show you an amazing showcase of local cheeses and salami.

We will end the tour in the city center where you will discover the history of cocoa, how and when it was first introduced to this area and you will get the chance to have a little tasting of local chocolates.

Other food tours in Italy include tastings: based on past experiences, I have decided to keep the cost of my tour reasonable and leave to you the decision to eat whatever and as much as you wish according to your appetite, personal tastes and intolerances.

A Recent Review of this tour

Carol is a brilliant guide and a delightful companion. After the tour was over we were amazed at how much ground we had covered and how much we had learned in such a short time. The experience was more like being shown around by an old friend that by a tour guide. Although her style was informal, Carol packed in a huge amount of history, knowledge of the wonderful city of Turin and insight into day-to-day life in Piedmont. Also, she introduced us to Bicerin, the drink and the cafe. Delicious.
