Piedmont has hundreds of typical products, and is therefore only second to Tuscany. Amongst the local specialities, we must not fail to mention the fantastic Bagna cauda, a typical soup made of garlic and anchovies and the delicious and delicate Plin agnolotti made by hand and usually served as a Sunday lunch main course..
Typical Piedmont produce are also its excellent cheeses, such as Bra, Tomino of Talucco, Castelmagno and many more.
Unlike other Ialian regions, eating chamois, goat and deer meat is very traditional in Piedmont. One of the yummiest local desserts is the Bonet, the Fricieuj ëd pom (apple fritters) and last but not least the gianduiotto -the typical chocolate from Turin.
The hills of Piedmont, and especially those surrounding the Langhe region of Alba, produce countless wines of international repute, like Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera Asti province, Gattinara, Freisa, Gems, Grignolino, Dolcetto delle Langhe and Ovada Carema, and each of them is absolutely worth trying.
Despite being very a highly industrialized region, there are lots of skilled craftsmen in Piedmont who are particularly good at working iron, glass, stone, wood, ceramics and pewter.
