      Gianduiotti: is a chocolate born in 1852 in Turin, shaped as ingots and incredibly creamy. Gianduiottis are individually wrapped in gold tinfoil and created with a unique mixture of piedmont hazelnut, cocoa and sugar.

      Bicerin: not-to-be-missed! It is a layered drink made of espresso, drinking chocolate, and whole milk (or heavy cream) served in a large glass. The beverage has been known since the 18th century and was also praised by Alexandre Dumas in its letters.

      Marron Glacé: is a precious confection, originating in Piedmont consisting of a chestnut candied in sugar syrup and glazed. They were invented shortly after the crusaders returned to Europe with sugar because chestnuts were a very available ingredient in the woods of Piedmont. Marron glaceés were the favourite dessert of the royal family!

      Pinguino (‘penguin’): in the warm season, we will taste the actual artisan gelato covered in crunchy dark chocolate. The confectionery we chose is the one were the Pinguino was first invented as a local contribution to Italian tradition in gelato-making.
