Turin is the capital of chocolate and nuts. However, its ancient confectionery tradition is not limited to them! In the clear winter days, before a theatre piece or a painting’s exhibition, Turinese people gather within some stunning cafes, sipping warm delicious drinks and tasting one of the many pastry typical of Piedmont tradition.

The ancient confectioneries in Turin feature carved wooden interiors, luxury furniture and decorations, exclusive pottery, exactly like those used when Turin was the capital of the Italian kingdom.
During our Turin patisserie food tour We will tell you all the stories and legends behind the tastings, palace intrigues, lucky statues and cursed ones…
We’ll drink hot and cold drinks (according to the season), taste incredibly fresh desserts, created in front of our eyes by the wise hands of pastry chefs, strictly with regional ingredients from the territory, the same ones since generations…

POSSIBLE TASTINGS

  • Gianduiotti - gianduiotto is a chocolate born in 1852 in Turin, shaped as ingots and incredibly creamy.Gianduiotti are individually wrapped in gold tinfoil and created with a unique mixture of Piedmont hazelnut, cocoa and sugar.
  • Bicerin - 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 - it is a precious confection, originating in Piedmont and 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!
