Sergio's Taste Experience is entirely dedicated to the flavors of the beautiful city of Avigliana. It begins with the starter, a vegetable pie, whose ingredients vary by season. In the winter, our Cesarino prepares it with Jerusalem artichoke, a tuber with a delicate but intense taste; in Summer, with vibrantly colourful peppers. Then we have a symbolic plate of Piedmont cuisine: Bagna Cauda, a ​savory sauce with a base of anchovies and garlic.

For the first course, Sergio serves a pumpkin risotto with Raschera fondue, a typical cheese that is added in chunks alongside leaves of marjoram. To follow, delicious buttered carrots are the side dish of another plate characteristic of the region, Nebbiolo-braised beef. The beef is marinated in vegetables and red wine, and is then ready to be browned, for a final result that is truly tender.

Finally, for dessert Sergio offers Bonet, an artisanal amaretti and chocolate pudding, a dessert representing the best of this region's culinary tradition.

Avigliana is a small town 25 kilometers from Turin immersed in a breathtaking landscape. Surrounded by mountains, its urban core actually lies on the banks of homonymous lakes. It is a natural oasis on the outskirts of the regional capital. Not far away, one can also see the Sacra di San Michele, an imposing and beautiful medieval abbey - a source of inspiration for the novel "The Name of the Rose" by Nobel Prize laureate, Umberto Eco.

Sergio welcomes us in this beautiful setting, ready to embark on a discovery tour of the local cuisine. In fact, his menu draws on classical Piedmont tradition, dominated by intense and delicious tastes, combining simple but flavorful recipes with noble and delectable dishes.
