What you'll do
Nestled in the foothills of the Alps, Italy’s Piedmont region is home to a rich, centuries-old culinary culture rooted in local and seasonal ingredients, thoughtful preparation, and meals enjoyed with others—ideals that would come to inspire Slow Food, a global movement that brought these regional traditions into the international consciousness. Join us as we wind our way from Turin to Langhe to explore Piedmont’s dynamic and variegated gastronomic landscape—zigzagging through lively markets, sipping velvety bicerin, and foraging for fresh truffles along the way. The real magic of this trip, however, will come from meeting the people who breathe life into the region’s distinctive food scene each day, from local hazelnut producers to seasoned sommeliers. Come prepared to dig deep into this delicious corner of the country, diving into a hands-on cooking class, dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant, and glimpsing into the world of food photography. Together, we’ll live out our wildest epicurean dreams, savoring each new morsel we discover along the way. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to and from Turin are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
