    Chocolate & Sweets
    Many people may not realize this, but Turin has a long tradition for making chocolate. One of the famous drinks in the area is called a bicerin. This was created in the 19th century and it consists of melted chocolate, coffee and milk. If you are looking for chocolate to eat then you will want to try the famous gianduja (gianduia), which is a blend of cocoa, sugar and hazelnuts. Some makers of this chocolate delight include Guido Gobino, Nutella and Peyrano.

    The Grissino
    This is a thin and crispy breadstick. The two most famous variations are the stirato, which means straight, and rubata, which means hand rolled. Legend has it that this Torinese invention helped save the life of Victor Amadeus II (The first Savoy king), who was sick with stomach ailments.

    Turin and Piedmont Food & Recipes
    This is a brief summary of the gastronomic traditions of Turin and Piedmont. It includes recipes and typical food found in the region.

    Turin Capital of Flavour
    From chocolates to breadsticks, from the celebrated pasta dishes to the venerated high-quality "DOC" wines that are exported throughout the world: a city of gourmets opens its doors.

    Turin is the birthplace of vermouth. In 1786, Antonio Benedetto Carpano took white wine and added herbs and spices and created this apertif, which can be used in mixing cocktails and cooking. Some popular brands of vermouth are Campari, Carpano and Martini.
