Thanks to the rich soil, excellent climate and hard-working families in the region Piedmont is a paradise for gourmands offering world-class delicacies unmatched by variants from elsewhere. Piedmont is a region in northwest Italy bordering France and Switzerland. As the name indicates, the area sits at the foot of the Alps, framed to the north by the Swiss High Alps, to the west by the Cotton Maritime Alps, to the south by the Apennines mountain range and is in addition close to the Mediterranean Sea. Due to its geographical location Piedmont has very unique climatic conditions with low-lying fog occurring often. The geographical environment makes the soil very special, providing a fertile ground for growing delicacies like truffles, hazelnuts and wine grapes, known world-wide for being best of their kind. Since 2014, the wine-growing region of Langhe has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The region offers such a huge variety of wonderful traditional dishes to try that it is difficult to know where to start. Piedmont is famous for the country's most tradition-bound cooking which includes insanely eggy pastas, hazelnuts, truffles and naturally famous red wines.
